The experts at The Princeton Review study the ACT and other standardized tests each year to make sure you get the most up-to-date, thoroughly researched books possible.
WE KNOW STUDENTS
Each year we help more than two million students score high with our courses, bestselling books, and award-winning software.
WE GET RESULTS
Students who take our courses for the SAT, GRE, LSAT, and many other tests see score improvements that have been verified by independent accounting firms. The proven techniques we teach in our six-week ACT course are in this book.
AND IF IT'S ON THE ACT, IT'S IN THIS BOOK
We don't try to teach you everything you need to know about English and math, only the techniques you'll need to score high on the ACT. There's a big difference. In Cracking the ACT, 1999-2000 Edition, we'll teach you how to think like the test-makers and:
*Eliminate answer choices that look right but are planted to fool you
*Ace the English test by learning how to quickly spot sentence structure, grammar, and punctuation errors
*Crack ACT algebra problems by "plugging in" numbers in place of letters
*Score high on reading comprehension by learning to zero in on the main ideas, topic sentences, and key words
*Solve science reasoning problems by scanning the passage for critical words
This book includes The Princeton Review Assessment, a full-length diagnostic exam that will predict your score on both the ACT and the SAT. The questions in this test are just like the ones you'll find on the real ACT and SAT.
