Course Description:
This course will help the student navigate through the ACT's Online Test Preparation Web site, access two full ACT practice tests, and learn the necessary skills in order to take the ACT test. This course also includes several lessons on other critical aspects of preparing for college, including developing a college resume, writing effective personal essays, and requesting letters of recommendation. This course is intended to prepare the student to take the ACT test. As the student works through the course, he will focus on learning more about his strengths and weaknesses as well as learn test-taking strategies that are specific to the ACT test. That way, when the student takes the actual test, the scores will be a good representation of the student's abilities. Finally, the student will submit a Personal Improvement Plan, which will reflect the areas for improvement that the student has identified throughout this course.
