ACT Practice Test

Sharpen your test-taking skills with a free, full-length practice ACT. In partnership with C2 Education of Newport Beach, the Newport Beach Public Library will host a free ACT practice test on Saturday, September 15 at 9:30am.

The test will be held in the Vincent Jorgensen Room at the Crean Mariners Branch Library and will last approximately four hours. Students should bring Number 2 pencils, a calculator, water, and snacks to the test. The calculators are needed for better success on the test and help with time management for the math sections. Results will be presented at a separate results program on Tuesday, September 25 at 7pm.

This is a free event but registration is required and space is limited. When you register online, you will receive a confirmation email from Please add that email address to your contacts or check your junk/spam mail if you do not receive a confirmation.
