Summer is the BEST time to prepare for a high ACT score June 30, 2017 finnprep57 Leave a comment Summer may sound like an unusual time to prepare for a college entrance exam, however keep reading to find out why it is the best time! (1) High school students have less academic responsibilities during the summer. (2) There is more FREE time to study during the summer months. (3) The September ACT is an excellent time to take the test because school tests/papers are not due this early in the semester. (4) ACT and SAT test preparation companies, like Finn Prep, offer a variety of ways to get your teenager moving toward a high score e.g., Boot Camps and more intensive one on one coaching sessions.
