Today the EA Team wants to describe the major difference between reading comprehension sections one the SAT and the ACT. On the SAT, the questions are sequential, which means that each question can basically be answered as you read the selection. This is useful to a test-taker because they know where to look to find the answer within the reading. However, on the ACT, the questions are not set up sequentially, so the reader has to keep the questions in his or her mind - memory- while reading the passage. Knowing that significant difference can help you decide which test is right for you.
On either test, if the test taker needs to refer back to the text multiple times to find an answer, then it is time to skip that question. If you are wondering why a test taker should do that, it is because if the answer can’t be found easily, then the test-taker usually becomes anxious. Once a person becomes that nervous, the answer is even more difficult to find. It is best to return to it after you have answered all the questions for that passage. At that point, the answer usually pops off the page.
If you would like to learn more about taking the reading comprehension portion of the test or ways to choose the test that is right for you, please contact the EA Team. You can reach us by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (845.582.0017). Our small classes (maximum of 6 students) for the last tests of the year are filling.
Please note that starting this Wednesday till next Monday, our team will be taking our Spring Break. We are hoping that the weather will cooperate and provide us with spring-like temperatures.
