ACT Test Prep Information

 

ACT Test Prep online registration will be open September 26 through October  13, 2016.

Prospect's Test Prep Seminar offers a comprehensive approach for preparing students to take the ACT

  • enables students to apply and practice proven strategies that improve results
  • focuses on developing the ability to solve problems, draw conclusions, make inferences, and think analytically
  • provides assignments that solidify skills

This course is offered to juniors during second semester in order to prepare for the ACT. 

Students will learn how the ACT is scored and develop test-taking strategies to help improve their scores.

Strategies for taking the ACT differ from those that are appropriate for the PSAT/SAT.

This seminar is not an individualized tutorial.  It is a review of the course content that students have been exposed to in their high school classes.

Prospect offers two sessions:

     
Monday After school 3:05 to 6:30 p.m. Oct 24, Nov 1 (Tues), Nov 7, 14, 28, Dec 5
Wednesday evenings 6 to 9:30 p.m. Oct 26, Nov 3 (Thurs), Nov 9, 16, 30, Dec 7
