This title contains extensive information about the test's format and content from the ACT makers. The general information about test centers and strategies for test taking are particularly helpful. One practice test is provided for each subject area. Scoring information is also offered. The optional CD contains college planning resources from Peterson's. While other ACT prep books include more practice tests, this book has information from the test creators themselves, which makes it especially valuable.

Not an accurate measure of potential. I got 27's-32's in the book but on the real test which I took twice and got a Barron's book I scored 23's -25's. None of my scores matched up except my reading score. I received 27's in the book and I got a 28 on the actual test. Other than that, I was 5-9 points below on each section. I could understand if I was maybe 2-3 points away from what I scored in the book but 5-9 is unacceptable. I don't know if I am just a bad test taker (I usually try to stay calm) or the book is not a good indicator. Got my hopes up for nothing. Save your money and your frustration.
