Overview

Cracking the Act 2002 by Geoff Martz, Theodore Silver, Kim Magloire

The Princeton Review realizes that acing the ACT is very different from getting straight As in school. The Princeton Review doesn't try to teach students everything there is to know about math, reading, and English--only the techniques they'll need to score higher on the exam. There’s a big difference. In Cracking the ACT, TPR will teach test takers how to think like the test makers and

• Use Process of Elimination to eliminate answer choices that look right but are planted to fool test takers
• Ace the English test by learning how to spot sentence structure, grammar, and punctuation errors quickly
• Crack algebra problems by Plugging In numbers in place of letters
• Score higher on reading comprehension by learning to zero in on main ideas, topic sentences, and key words
• Solve science reasoning problems by scanning the passage for critical words

This book includes one full-length simulated ACT, 4 full-length practice ACT exams on CD-ROM, and The Princeton Review Assessment Exam--a diagnostic exam designed to help students decide whether to take the ACT or the SAT. The questions on TPR's practice ACT exams are like the ones test takers will find on the real ACT.
