  • Step 2. Set a timer for 55mins and attack the Math With Calculator by using the following method:
  • for each question: label the EZ, MED, and HARD questions on each page AND get your first impression
    • a. can do it
    • b. not sure – circle the entire question with answers
    • c. or forget about it – circle the entire question with answers
  • if you feel like a. or b., work the question using no more than 60secs
  • if you feel like c., spend 20-30secs getting familiar with how the question reads and notice types of answers offered
  • don’t be afraid to identify any question that gives you trouble – it’ll be a “weakness” until you make it your “friend” through practice
  • Go straight to the SOLUTIONS and make friends with any question type that gave you trouble – OWN THE QUESTION!
  • Estimated time for completion: <60secs to solve; 60secs to review per question

Estimated time for completion: 8.5-15mins per passage, including review

  • click on and review the attached 4-Step Method Cheat Sheet
  • Only use Reading Passage 1 – we will review your method on Thursday, so you can properly employ techniques on the remaining passages
  • set timer for 8.5mins (USE THAT TIMER)- use the 4-Step Method- remember to attack answers to each question from the bottom-up
  • When timer ends at 8.5mins– count up the number of questions left – write count at the top of the page
  • set timer for an additional 3mins and continue with questions
  • When timer ends at 11.5mins (this will be the equivalent time to working on each of only 3 out of 4 ACT passages in 35mins)
  • count up the number of questions left- write count at the top of the page- set timer for an additional 1.5mins and wrap up the questions that are left (this will be the equivalent time to working on each of the 5 SAT passages in 65mins)
