ACT Test Dates This Summer - Pro Strategies to Stay on Track

Higher score. Study efficiently. Summer fun. How can I get all three?

* If you are taking other tests instead of or in addition to the ACT, get some expert resources for the: SAT, CLEP, DSST, PSAT, and GED.

As of 2018, the ACT will have two testing dates over the summer break. While studying is perhaps not your dream summer vacation plan, the summer does offer a lot more time to study without the worries of other homework.

If you are planning on taking the ACT this year and haven’t started studying yet, it is time to get going. The next test date is September 8th.

The registration deadline is August 10th, so you still have some time. If you’re planning on taking the August 10th test, make sure you are using one of our free downloads below. The weakness targeting strategy is great if you haven’t really started studying yet because it is a lot faster. But, if you’re waiting until the October 27th test (registration deadline September 28th), I really recommend trying the full review strategy. The full review strategy is going to give you a bigger overall increase to your ACT score, but it does take quite a bit longer to do.

At Peterson’s, we want you give you the best information out there as you prepare to succeed. Here are two pro strategies to get a higher score, study efficiently, and still have fun this summer:
