The American College Testing Program (ACT) measures verbal and mathematical ability. Colleges use the ACT to assist in the selection of applicants. Review courses frequently increase scores, in part by diminishing test anxiety. While enrolling in such a course does not guarantee higher scores, students reach their testing potential with training in the following areas: reading comprehension, sentence completion, vocabulary, student-written essays, critical reasoning, science reasoning, discrete quantitative math, and student-produced responses. Students also increase their scores and confidence level by taking previous versions of the official tests, a key component of our program.
