ACT Test Prep Information

 

ACT Test Prep online registration will be open September 26 and closes October 12, 2017.

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

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/NMSQT and 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, register for one session:
