Peterson's ACT Practice Test Registration required, 1 full ACT. This ACT is entirely online, and it includes a timer and pause features. The test takes under a minute to load, and has a simple interface. Since it displays questions individually, each question can take a second or two to display, which can be annoying when fighting the clock and you have slow internet. After finishing the sections, the test is automatically graded, and you can go back and review the explanations for the questions you missed, again one at a time. You can view two sample essays and assign yourself a score. Peterson's free ACT is a good resource if you do not mind clicking through the test question by question.

Kaplan Free ACT Resources 1 full ACT test and customized quizzes with 370 questions. This test requires a little bit of planning and registration before you can take it. You want to get the "ACT Course Demo" to get the complete ACT test, and the "Free ACT Quizbank" to take customized ACT quizzes. The test is a PDF download. You will have to decide whether to print the document or view the test on the computer and write down answers by hand. The questions look and feel like a real ACT, so it's good practice. Once done, you can enter your scores online to grade the test ONLY if your account has been activated more than 24 - 48 hours. You must plan ahead to take this test! Along with the answers come explanations, which are very detailed. Unique to Kaplan is an "essay grader" that asks you several questions about your essay and gives you an approximate score. I would not trust it too much, but it can give you a decent idea. This is a great resource, especially if you register 2 days before you take the test, but the 2 day wait for online scoring and analysis is a serious drawback. The Quizbank is also a great resource since you can choose what questions to put on your quiz, and you can make it as long or as short as you like. There is a timed mode, where explanations are avaliable at the end, and a tutor mode, where explanations appear after each question. Both the full test and quizzes are great, and the extra registration and waiting are definitely worth it.
