This site is where you register for the test and check for testing dates and locations. However, the site has much more to offer.

In addition to information about financial aid and college planning, the site includes tools to track your progress on preparation for college and useful tools to explore career options. Online test preparation is available through ACT for a fee, but this site supplies the student with free practice tests and even allows the user to practice with a Question of the Day if they choose.

Your ACT score is important not only to college admission, but also can be a key factor in determining your eligibility for academic scholarship assistance at most institutions. Consequently, spending some time to maximize your score is a great investment in your future!
