    I had to take the ACT, 20 years post high school. Scared the bugebbers out of me. And there isnt anything like a 35 year old sitting in a classroom with a bunch of high school juniors,, uhggg!I did fine though. All ya need is what the particular school requires. As for any important test though,, get a good nights sleep, eat some breakfast, get there in plenty of time with required ID, take a few good deep breaths before you go in and try to relax. Good luck!!

    The ACT is a piece of cake. I didn't prepare for it at all... I had to get a minimum score of 20 to enter the nursing program, and I took it so far in advance I figured if I bombed it, I could do it again.

    No preparation... no problem. I got a 29. And this was 6 years out of high school with no classes in between.

    Seriously, relax about it.

    The problem is that I never had geometry. So it's kind of like going back to basics. The basic algebra I think I can handle.

    I knew a girl that got a 36 on the ACT. Had several Ivy league colleges hounding her to go there. That was 12 years ago (am I really that old?) to this day, she has never gone to college. She was really shy and didn't think she would be able to handle it.

    Go figure
