Book Description

May 1 2009 Barron's Act Math & Science Workbook
This brand-new hands-on workbook presents exercises, problems and quizzes with solutions and answers as it progresses through all math and science topics covered on the ACT college entrance test. Separate math chapters cover pre algebra, elementary algebra, intermediate algebra, plane geometry, coordinate geometry, and trigonometry. Separate science chapters cover data representation passages, research summary passages, and conflicting scientific viewpoints. The book's science sections emphasize the scientific method and focus on how to read scientific passages. A glossary of helpful science terms is provided. Strategies for success are included in every chapter. A full-length practice test reflecting the ACT science and math sections come with explained answers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Math is harder than most other ACT prep materials Aug. 28 2009
By Person - Published on Amazon.com
The book covers math topics broken down by major subject (pre algebra, algebra, geometry, plane geometry, and trig I think). Within each subject it covers more specific things and has sample problems. There's a mini-test at the end of each section with about 10-15 questions on what was just covered. I didn't look at the science section at all so I don't know what's there.

There is one math and one science practice test at the end.

I think the questions and material covered were a lot harder than the other prep books I've used, including the Real ACT Guide. More on things like graphing trig functions, etc. that I don't think are really crucial for the ACT, at least not in the depth they go. It was good for picking out some harder problems but I don't think I would use this as my main math review book.

Update: I like this book a bit better now that I've revisited it, after thinking the other review books were too easy. My biggest complaint now is that there is only one practice test. I think it would be much better if they made the book math only, and had 4-5 practice tests at the end (like McGraw Hill's does) instead of only one. I don't know if all of the content covered will actually be on the ACT, but it's a good book for those who want to err on the safe side by learning more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful! Sept. 8 2011
By Wendy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a late in life ACT taker. So, unlike a kid straight out of high school I've had some time to really and truly forget all that useless stuff I learned. These workbooks are seriously saving me, not only from humiliating myself, but also from having to retake the ACT. It's like a nice mini refresher course in your hands. I have truly appreciated that these were available... Having them, being able to sit down and work through them is honestly taking away a lot of the test anxiety and boosting my confidence.

So, if you're right out of high school or like me a late bloomer I highly recommend these!

I would also recommend looking into some specific workbooks for the different levels of math on the ACT. ie PreAlgebra, Alg I & II, Geometry and even touch on Trig.

Happy Studying and Good Luck.

I was so pleased with this book. I really struggle with the math and science portions on the ACT, and this book helped me so much! It focuses on all of the different types of math and charts you must know for the test. I improved my score by 4 points!

3.0 out of 5 stars Math is okay, but science is terrible Feb. 13 2013
By bekki - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
THis book is VERY different from the actual ACT tests.

Math section is all right-(how much can math questions be different, anyways)

but science? NO WAY. the passages found on this section are much longer,tedious &annoying.

while the actual science portion of ACT didn't require you to read a lot of the unnecessary info,

these science passages forced me to read too much info & run out of my time quickly.
