Chemistry Knowledge You Need for the ACT Science Section

April 19, 2016

You may be surprised to find out that you don't need outside science knowledge to answer most of the questions on the ACT science section, but it generally helps on 5-6 questions, and 1 or 2 generally will require it.  Coming equipped with a fundamental knowledge of the basics of biology, chemistry, physics, and the earth sciences will generally cover you on those “outside knowledge” questions, while rare, could mean the difference between a 32 and a 36.  But don’t just take it from us.
