5.0 out of 5 stars It works! June 25 2014

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an awesome book to help your child raise their ACT composite scores! There are many tricks that can help your already smart student make an even better score. All of us are "bad" test takers that haven't had the chance to sit for this exam multiple times. For example, do you know how many questions are on the ACT and how much time you have to take each section? This book breaks it all down for you and offers many more tips to help you succeed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Every little bit helps Feb. 27 2014

My son is a terrible test taker and is completely overwhelmed by the ACT and ACT prep process. This book has helped give him a game plan to tackle both the test as well as the test prep. Along with a book of practice tests, we are slowly working our way through the tests and his scores are improving. This easy-to-read guide helped him see that if he follows their advice and doesn't get overwhelmed, that he can do well on the ACT.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect for book for bad test takers!!! June 23 2014
By Joan Peterson - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We bought this for my granddaughter, who was only struggling with the Reading portion of the ACT (she scored 35 on Science and 34 on English and Math but wanted her overall score to be higher). We tried an online test prep, but felt it was really for students who needed help overall with studying. This book was easy for her to spend a little time each day on and the results were fantastic! She raised her reading score by 4 points! A great resource! Excellent tips proved extremely useful!

5.0 out of 5 stars Definite buy Aug. 12 2013

I found the book exceptionally helpful. With just two weeks of studying using the book's methods and never having an experience with the ACT, I managed a 32. I found this book extremely resourceful for a beginner like myself. I also believe it can help more experienced test takers find that slight edge to improve their scores. The book is easy to read, and isn't like typical test advice books as this one gives you an actual strategy that can help one tackle the ACT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Our daughter connected with this philosophy March 20 2014
By Carol from PA - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Still doing practice tests, but boosted math score from 22 to 29, science from 23 to 29 in just one session. Our daughter is bright, but was struggling to finish parts of the science and math tests because she was getting dragged done by complex problems. This book helped give her a workable game plan for approaching the test. The strategy works for her because she is able to bypass the roadblocks and work on problems she is able to solve and get right. Thank you Moshe Ohayan!
