you mean the software? or something else? Sorry but I might be able to help you with Act software not Act subject :-)

um. i mean the act test.. like what all is on it and how can you answer all the questions to the best of your ability in the time span given.. what kind of software do they have?

Jehanzeb 11-15-2008 12:15 PM

haha! then I have no idea what you are talking about.

I was talking about the software from SAGE, it's an accounting software. Here is the link ACT! by Sage - Contact and Customer Relationship Management Software | Home.

Sorry I misunderstood you there.

The ACT is a test American students take before applying to college/university. It's a standardised test in things like maths and English; I believe there's a science component too. The other test most students take is known as the SAT. In the absence of national qualifications such as we have in A levels or the IB, it's a useful tool for comparing students from different states and schools.

Wow thanks for the information Claire. You do have vast general information about things. Do you know a program (Eggheads)?, you should gather your best friends and apply there. I love the program :-)

Sorry Kaite, I won't be able to help you there as I have no idea about Act, the American test I meant. :-)

I don't know the right kind of trivia for quiz shows xD

If I remember correctly mine had a lot of sentences where you had to choose which word would correctly be used in the sentence..
For example:
The pizza burnt in the ______.
a: sink
b: oven
c: shower
d: fridge

Obviously not that easy. But there are varying difficulty levels of those.

Then I think there was reading..several reading passages and you have to answer questions about them

Thenn there was writing where you have to write. That may still be optional though. It was when I took it

And there was science. Mine was a variety of stuff. General knowledge stuff..then stuff more in depth..and I believe if I remember right they had procedures for experiments and asked questions about them. But wow lol..I took it 4 years ago and I don't remember!

I do remember we had to go in early on a Saturday and they advised us to take pillows to sit on as the seats were uncomfy haha.
