The American College Testing (ACT) is a national college admission examination that consists of subject-area tests in English, math, science, and reading with an optional writing test. All 4-year colleges and universities in the United States accept ACT results and the results from these tests must be included as part of the application admission to most four-year colleges and universities. Because admissions are becoming increasingly competitive, a higher ACT test scores can give students an edge on the competition.

This course is designed to help students prepare for this important assessment by focusing on the Mathematic and English sections of the exam. Students will learn and review material that the ACT covers in these areas and will help students develop valuable test-taking strategies to improve their scores.
