Learn How to Be a Test Performer
Schools do not teach you HOW to take tests; they just give them to you. This program will teach you how to become a better test performer by focusing on the ACT. Your improvement will be based on the amount of effort you put into it. There are no guarantees. However, if you get out of it what over 15,000 other students have, then you will not only maximize your ACT composite score, but you will do better on tests and quizzes in high school and later in college.
