I have done a tone of practice, and currently received a 31. Now, i am looking to improve for a 32- i was one point away. I have used all of princeton 1296 questions, princeton cracking the act, mcgraw 10 prac tests, mcrgraw 6 prac tests, real act prep guide, and barrons 6 prac. test.
What should i get? is the act online prep any help? Keep in mind i know the strategies just need a little more confidence booster.
preferably more tests.

    Wow! You seem like a hard working student. I think the number of tests you have done is enough. I recommend that you should revise concepts and strategies. Take 2 more practice tests in a week or so and evaluate. If you are thorough with the concepts , then that should totally boost you.

    The books that my daughter used:

    Kaplan
    Barron's ACT 36
    Barron's ACT
    PR 1296 ACT practice Q
    The Real ACT
    PR Cracking the ACT
    Gruber's complete ACT guide
    McGraw Hills 10 ACT practice tests

    All from our local public library.
    Make sure you go through the answers and explanation. If you have done all these and reached a plateau, identify which part you are having room for improvement. If that is something in Math you can review (e.g. geometry), do a thorough review on that instead of doing more practice tests. If it is in the English, review the grammar rules. If it is in reading, do more classical literature reading. Just be focus in that area before you do more practice test again.

    How would can i improve science and reading, i mean you can't really brush up.
    Also how was the Gruber ACT- and the barrons act 36, which would you reccommend. I would like a book that is about the same or even a bit harder then the real act.

    Barron's tends to be slightly harder. Princeton is about the official test level. Kaplan is a bit easier. Gruber may have somewhat different question style (forgot it was the ACT or the SAT one). All these are according to my D.
