This unparalleled ACT®
test preparation course readies students for all four sections of the ACT®
test, plus the optional writing section. Students take official, retired ACT®
pre- and post-tests to determine strengths and weaknesses. Qualified instructors work directly with students to work through this comprehensive preparation program.
Preparing for the ACT can increase test scores that are important for gaining acceptance into your college of choice and for expanding your scholarship opportunities.
This course is designed to complement area high schools' preparatory programs.
This program provides 12 hours of instruction in: writing strategies to assist you in the essay part of the ACT®
test; orientation to the ACT®
and its four parts; opportunity to take diagnostic assessments; instruction in all four areas; test-taking strategies for each of the components and for the entire test; practice with printed materials where test-taking tips can be applied and reinforced and interactive skill drills in deficit areas as measured by the diagnostic test.
Course materials are provided by Cambridge Educational Services, the leader in test preparation.
The ACT® test is a gateway to your future plans. Don't make the ACT®more stressful by arriving unprepared.
