ACT Test Prep
Prepare yourself for the ACT College Aptitude Test. You will learn general test-taking skills, answering strategies for handling each type of question, time restraints, and the scoring system. This class is designed to coach you to do your best on the Act and demystify college admission testing. Preparing for the ACT will not produce perfect scores, but it will improve your score by reducing “test anxiety” that can limit your performance during the exam. Please bring a pen/pencil and notepaper to class. This course meets a total of two sessions. A textbook “CliffsNotes ACT Cram Plan, 2nd edition” is included in the price of this course. Seating is limited for this class. This year, two classes have been scheduled. Please see below for
