Maybe it's just me, but I find the time constraints by far the most difficult factor of the ACT - this is especially true for math; I'm good at the subject (I'm currently in Calculus, and I've previously taken Advanced Algebra, Trig, Pre-Calc, and an accelerated course through a special math-centered school), but it takes me too long to come to the answers, particularly in geometry and some of the earlier but lesser-used rules of algebra (which I haven't done at school in about five years, if ever). Does anyone else have this problem, or, more importantly, does anyone have any tips or tricks on speeding up the process (and please don't just suggest "speed reading," I think that's rather a no-brainer)? I don't see what options I have besides simply *rushing* myself, which makes me anxious and even more likely to make careless mistakes. :(
