The English section of the ACT tests language such as grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure as well as rhetoric skills as it relates to organization and style.
Duration: 75-questions, 45-minutes
Strategy #1: This section of the ACT is easy to answer if you skim through the questions before reading the passage.
Strategy #2: Circle questions like, "If the writer were to add ____ here" or "paragraph x would be better if it were ____” and come back to them later.
Strategy #3: Mark all the grammar questions and answer them as you read the passage.
Strategy #4: Immerse yourself in the topic as you read along. Ask yourself questions; it’ll help you remember the material better.
Strategy #5: Like with any other section of the ACT, keep your first answer unless you know it’s wrong. There are several answer choices that may seem right, but be sure to pick the one that answers the particular question.
