Random House Information Group, Jan 1, 2001 - Study Aids - 416 pages
Princeton Review realizes that acing the ACT is very different from getting straight As in school. They don'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 ACT. 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 The Princeton Review Assessment, a full-length diagnostic exam that will predict test takers approximate scores on both the ACT and the SAT. The questions on this test are just like the ones test takers will find on the real ACT and SAT.

This is a study guide that is well worth the purchase price. It does not make the mistake of trying to reteach you everything that you should have already learned, thereby becoming extremely wordy and unnecessarily involved. No! This series of books just helps you to remember tips that you should have learned, but may have forgotten, and gives you practical ways to approach every type of problem that will be on the test. In short, it does what a good study book should, it teaches you how to pass the test. It includes two practice exams, and you can also take practice exams online, so I would forgo the extra expense of getting the CD-Rom with the book, but it is very user freindly and will help tremendously.
