ACTs of the ACT

Words of “Wiz-dom”—You may be anxious to start working on one of the four tests that make up the ACT assessment. I encourage you to read through all the introductory materials before you do. If you just can’t wait, at least review the Pillars of Wiz-dom before you go on to the different sections of the test. If you skip this section, be sure to come back and review this section later.
