Preparing for the ACT
About This Course
If you are college bound, you will probably be required to take the ACT Assessment. Almost all undergraduate colleges and universities require that prospective students take either the ACT or the SAT and most students take both. Taking this course first will prepare you for all question types found on the ACT. We will analyze each of the test question areas and give special consideration to math and verbal refreshers and techniques aimed at relieving test-taking anxiety. You will practice on actual ACT tests from previous years, and we fully explain and interpret the correct and incorrect answers.
- Topics include effective word usage, grammar, and reading comprehension for the verbal sections; techniques for the science reasoning section; and basic and advanced math concepts (including fractions, decimals, percentages, ratios, and proportions) and algebraic, geometric, and trigonometric concepts for the math section.
