Hello, everyone is Marco Vela por coming to you from Davison College. Today I want to talk to a little bit about how I prepare for a C T. Which is the only test I took. Davidson will require Quintus and yeah, that's the one my school my high school prepared us for which is very conveniently time, because I'm getting ready to take the g r e this week for Post grad related academic related stuff. This is how I personally prepared for the CT. So for me, I think this depends on, like, your strong suits. What do you what subjects you know, you're good at and ones that you think you are. So the essay part was no issue for me in the grammar like reading sections were no issue from because reading comprehension is like another one of my strong suits. How ever math, on the other hand, was not one of those areas for me. In preparing for the a c. T, I did a whole lot of like, extra like I had a home math tutor for regular class in high school. I just cross some of that stuff over and just like, Hey, Qi also show me how to do this. I had a really big So my big Red A C T test prep book that my high school, Um, I think the apartment with a program or program came in and gave us free classes. It was offer every Saturday from, like, 10 99 to 1 or something like that. Um, yeah, they came with a really big test book and homework, and that's how we got prepared. I honestly thought it was more helpful to do the math with my tutor. Just because I work better when I'm able to ask questions and in a classroom setting when it's a whole lot of us doing the same problem, is it? I don't know. If I were to stop and ask questions, so I was I took a lot of stuff back to my tutor. Um, in terms of the other subjects, I think finding A like what? This is a free like program one line, or like a book or flash cards or something that you use. The study will be helpful and knowing your strengths, I think that's helpful to you. Don't need to like you need to, like, study the subjects you think you're good at, because the team could very well be very different from what you think you know. So just look over something like that in a city book. Um, yeah, I also took AP tests and such, which comes with a whole course attached to it. For extra prep, I always got a P books like they be Princeton ones, which everyone's and I studied from there. I as I mentioned, I'm a better writer and reader than I am with other stuff. I don't remember which AP English composition and literature maybe think so. The first time I took it wasn't attached to a AP class. It was just a took regular English, and they said whoever had AIDS in that class will go. I got a three, which is pretty good, considering I hadn't been prepared with, like, eight p like class. Um, and as far as a c. T. I had a different experience because I got sick during two of my sittings. I'm not a huge fan of Les standardized tests, so I feel like this The environment stress me out a little bit, but I think I still was. What did I tell you? Make sure you prepare, like, even beyond your leg. I suggest getting eight people because you never know what's gonna be different. The book cover more things than maybe your class, my. If you don't know that, then you can't prepare for us. I think the books helpful, but you can probably also find a free version of it online. Yeah, Um, take a jacket when you go take your E C t. Because it's cold in here. Thanks for watching, and I'll pull more video soon.
