TEST PREPARATION

Greetings test-takers!
  • Be aware of special sessions announced by Mr. Rezzo for special prep classes and info sessions.
  • Continue to work hard preparing with your classes, prep books, and online resources.
  • Eat breakfast and bring a snack for your break on test day! This is a LONG exam (2 hours and 55 minutes (plus 40 minutes for the Essay), so you will need your brain food! See below or click this link for a full list of what to bring and what NOT to bring on test day.

WHAT TO BRING (AND NOT TO BRING) ON TEST DAY

Help yourself be calm and prepared for test day by knowing what you can and cannot bring into the test room with you.

BRING THIS, NOT THAT

  • Bring sharpened, soft lead No. 2 pencils with good erasers (no mechanical pencils or ink pens).
  • Bring a watch to pace yourself, but do not bring a watch with an alarm.
  • Bring a permitted calculator to be used on the mathematics test only. It is your responsibility to know whether your calculator is permitted. Please refer to the ACT Calculator Policy (PDF). To make it even easier to figure out, you are not required to use a calculator at all.

Don’t bring these into the test room; you can’t use them!

  • Textbooks, foreign language or other dictionaries, scratch paper, notes, or other aids
  • Highlight pens, colored pens or pencils, or correction fluid/tape
  • Any electronic device, other than a permitted calculator (this includes your mobile phone, smart watch, fitness band, media player, iPad, headphones, and camera)
  • Reading material
  • Prohibited devices

Prohibited devices: ACT reminds you that upon registration, you agreed to the Terms and Conditions: Testing Rules and Policies for the ACT (PDF). In particular, we’d like to bring your attention to the prohibited use of cell phones and electronic devices. The prohibited use of devices is in effect from the time you are admitted to your testing room until you are dismissed at the end of the test, including break times. Specifically:

  • You may not handle or access a cell phone or electronic device at any time in the testing room or during break times. This includes smart watches, fitness bands, and any other devices with recording, internet, or communication capabilities.
  • All devices, including cell phones and wearable devices, must be turned off and placed out of sight.
  • If you access your device or if your device activates while in the testing room or during break times, you will be dismissed, your test will not be scored, and your phone or device may be taken away.
