Well, the time has come for me to take my ACT tomorrow. I was wondering if any of you guys had any last minute studying or test taking tips.

 

Thanks and o7

Go in and have fun with it. You'll always perform better if you're happy. Trust your first instinct but sidebar a couple of questions to return to at the end that you can puzzle over, provided you have time. Also trust your instinct if a question is gobsmacking you; skip it and use your time to think clearly on other items. Remember to build an outline for any essay in your head before executing it. Bring gum. Don't forget you can always retake it; use that as something to possibly look forward to rather than a punishment, and free you to perform better on other sections if you stumble.

 

Not worth cramming too much, though reviewing basic algebra/trig/geo equations is smart. Good luck!

20 years ago, I used to teach Princeton Review SAT prep courses.  Unfortunately what I knew about the SAT is probably out of date, I never really studied up on ACT.  The best advice I can give is to get an ACT prep book, focus on ACT strategies.  A little bit of preparation will make a huge difference in your score.  The Princeton Review is now known as Magoosh [which is super stupid] and you can go to magoosh.com and take a practice test, it'll give full explanations and answers after you're done.  It's a lot better than going to ACT's website and taking their practice test.  The idea is to take a practice test now, see where you're at, read the book, learn some strats, take the test again to see your improvement.  If the second test is where you want to be, go take the real one.

That gives you time to prepare.  Take advantage of it, like I said at least take a practice test to see if you're scoring what you need, then if needed you can invest some time into learning the test.  These tests are all beatable.

My advice is to never take serious advice from strangers who spend way more time than they should playing video games

I would offer the same advice, but I know that a lot of the people on this forum are older than the majority of players and probably have done these things before.

If they had done well on them, they would be too busy to play tanks.

Disagree!  There are lots of smart slackers.  They make up a majority of our unicums.
