The part about not overriding act() came from the presenters at the AP Review Sessions for AP CS. It's really easier just to override a couple of the helper methods rather than start from scratch by overriding act().

I felt that I didn't really get anything out of GridWorld. However, to be fair, we only studied it in the final couple weeks before the AP exam and I did get the feeling that there was stuff about it we didn't cover.

That sounds exactly like me. There is a lot of stuff on the exam that I had never heard of, let alone seen before.
