ACT English Test

The multiple-choice English test focuses on proper grammar, punctuation, and sentence flow. You are asked on this ACT test to correct sentences identified within a passage. The passage precedes the questions and each sentence is number in the passage. Take the time to read the opening the passage before jumping into the questions. This will help give you the right framework for answering each question. Consequently, the questions will make more sense if you understand the passage.

You do have time to read the passage and not skim over the passage. Test questions false flags are set-up for skimmers. Even slow readers can complete the reading passages and have a good opportunity to answer the passage due to the fact they understand the passage. Four answer choices are presented and only one choice is the correct answer. Moreover, some questions will indicate “no change” as an answer choice. If you believe the passage doesn’t need to be changed select the “no change” answer choice.

Review all of your punctuation rules and grammar rules for this section. Focus on the rules that relate to comma placement and the use of clauses. You should be able to break down each given sentence into subcomponents. You have 45 minutes to answer 75 questions on this test.
