So after taking my first ACT, I was surprised to find my reading sub-score to be the lowest. After a momentary loss of sanity I decided it would be best for me just to get help rather than belly-ache. I chose this book because it seemed like an easy and effective tool that was exactly what I was looking for. This book raised my reading score significantly, and its no longer the lowest (blast that Math). Buy it if you struggled on the ACT reading, it provides advise and test-taking strategies.

A must-buy for the ACT. If you only buy one book to prepare for this test, make sure it's this one. The strategies are specific and useful. No wasteful filler like you find in the other prep books. The authors tell you exactly what to do to increase your score. And the book is fun to read.

If you are having trouble finishing the ACT reading test, the general reading advice in this book should help you improve your reading speed and comprehension. However, the practice passages in this book are not like the real thing. Use this book only to improve your speed and comprehension and practice on real tests instead of the tests in this book. That way you will understand how the real ACT reading test works. Once you understand how the test works you can get a very high score on the reading if you can finish the test.

This book is helpful for maybe a C student.... my daughter is an A student and this book had a very few useful tips for her. The passages in the back of the book were helpful, but I wouldn't buy this book if your child is an A student

Format: Paperback
Close reading of text has always been a challenge for me. It seems that teachers just expect you to know how to do it without ever showing you. This prep book has principles that emphasize "reading for meaning". I even found myself laughing out loud at times! An easy read with great content.
