How to Use My ACT Crash Course
If you want higher ACT scores, you’ve come to the right place.
When it comes to ACT prep, there’s no shortage of materials out there. Just stroll into your average bookstore and you’ll find shelves full of books, flashcards, and packets promising their readers higher ACT scores.
Here’s the funny thing: most of these materials are great! In fact, I use a lot of them with my own students. But they, on their own, aren’t enough to get you higher ACT scores. They contain plenty of material, which is essential if you want to improve. But material alone won’t do the trick.
If you want to get amazing ACT scores, you need extremely strong material, strategy, and experience. Without all three, you’re like a two-legged stool.
If you want to learn the area of a triangle, or find out how to use a comma and a semicolon, you can do those things anywhere – in fact, just Google them! No books necessary.
However, it’s one thing to know these things – it’s another thing to know how to use them on these tests. And that’s where this guide comes in. By the time you’re finished, you’ll know the best strategies for all four sections of the ACT – English, math, reading, and science. You won’t just be picking up cheap “tips and tricks” – you’ll be learning fundamental techniques that’ll help you to use all your existing knowledge with much more efficiency.
I’ve spent my entire career – over 13,000 hours – teaching students how to master this test. Of all the strategies that I teach, the ones you’re about to read are some of the most profoundly effective. So without further ado, let’s get to it!
