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.
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.
