5 ACT Reading Practice Questions, and a little extra to help you study

Students who are struggling with the reading section of the ACT should consider spending time each study session reviewing practice questions for that section of the test. Going over practice questions allows students to get a feel for what the ACT reading section is looking for, what the questions will be like on the actual test, and how they can implement tips and tricks to better help them get through the reading section in the time allotted.

Success on the reading section of the ACT is a combination of a lot of reasons, but if students can get a taste of what to expect from this section, they are far more likely to succeed. The key here is to practice, practice, practice.
