ACE the ACT with ACT Strategy Smart

The ACT Strategy Smart test prep is designed to help college-bound students raise their score on the ACT and get into the college of their choice.

Authored by About.com's test prep specialist, ACT Strategy Smart gives you crucial test-taking strategies you need to know before exam day. By learning these effective techniques, you can master the ACT and get a higher score.

Written in a student-friendly, easy-to-understand style, the author focuses on the content of the ACT, explains the concepts tested in each section of the test, and offers strategies, tips, and pointers on how to answer questions correctly. Practice drills and exercises reinforce what you have learned and identify the areas where you need extra study.

Divided into four weekly study sessions, each week covers the unique strategies you need to score high on the English, Math, Science, and Reading portions of the exam. An optional fifth week leads you through strategies for taking the ACT Writing Test.

After studying a section of the book, go to REA's Study Center and take an online practice test on that week's subject. Each practice test is based on actual ACT questions and is the same length, configuration, and difficulty level as the ACT.

A full-length ACT practice exam with detailed answer explanations is included in the book and offered online. Our online test gives you the added benefits of automatic scoring and diagnostic feedback, so you can identify your strengths and weaknesses before exam day.
