Where to Find Free ACT Flashcards

Instructor: William White
Flash cards can help students quickly and easily prepare for the ACT, as well as the individual subjects. Read on to learn about some online study options and flashcards, many of which are free.

Options for Free ACT Flashcards

Free Apps

Free apps allow you to study for the ACT with your portable electronic device. You can download free ACT apps for your Android smartphone, iPhone, tablet or iPod. These apps, including ACT Test Prep Free from Google Play and Exambusters from iTunes, include flashcards for the math, English and science portions of the ACT.

Test-Prep Organizations

Most ACT test-prep organizations charge for their classes, but some provide test prep materials 'free' with purchase. For example, Kaplan Test Prep charges $9.99 for 500 digital flashcards that cover reading, English, math, science and writing questions. But, if you register and pay for one of Kaplan's prep courses or tutoring, you'll get the flashcards for free.

Online Test-Prep Sites

Free ACT prep flashcards are available for download or online use from a variety of websites. Some websites provide interactive flashcards where you click on the card and it turns over with the correct answer. Others require that you select the right answer from a list. Most interactive ACT flashcards include an explanation of the right answer. Downloadable flashcards are often easiest to use if you print them out. While they are free, this can cost you in printer ink and paper resources. Some sites that offer these include Study Stack, Free Test Prep and Varsity Tutors.

Additional Online Study Option

You can find more in-depth study options for the ACT at Study.com by paying a minimal membership fee. While flashcards aren't available, printable worksheets are offered for every lesson in an online course. Students can use these to test themselves offline. Additionally, online lesson quizzes are available, which have the same questions that the worksheets do.

Other features of Study.com's ACT prep courses include brief videos that use engaging illustrations and animations to bring concepts to life, chapter exams and a convenient online format that lets you study from any location using your mobile device.
