Similar in length, structure, question types, and degree of difficulty to the actual ACT. All test questions are answered with detailed analyses explaining why each correct answer is the right one, and why the alternatives are incorrect. It includes exclusive tips and strategies to help test takers attain their highest score. This manual serves as effective test preparation when used alone, and makes an ideal test prep companion when used in tandem with Barron’s ACT study guide||Students who are focusing on getting an exceptionally high or even perfect score on the ACT will want to get their hands on this innovative book. Inside, they’ll find: Advice and strategies for tackling the ACT’s most difficult questions and coming up with winning answers; extra-challenging practice tests in all ACT test areas: English, Math, Reading, Science, and the optional Writing test; instruction on reading efficiently and retentively; special tips for boosting your science score; and detailed advice on writing a winning essay||The cards cover all five sections of the ACT and are divided into categories that reflect the ACT’s test areas: English, Math, Reading, Science, and Writing.

All cards have corner punch holes that accommodate an enclosed metal key-ring-style card holder. Students can use the ring to arrange flash cards in sequences that best fit their study needs. These flash cards can be used alone as study aids, or as a supplement to Barron’s ACT test preparation manuals||This hands-on workbook takes college-bound students through all math and science topics covered on the ACT. Separate math chapters cover: Pre-algebra, elementary algebra, and intermediate algebra; and plane geometry, coordinate geometry, and trigonometry. The science sections emphasize the scientific method and focus on how to read scientific passages. Science topics covered include: Data representation passages; research summaries passages; and conflicting viewpoints passages. Additional features include a glossary of science terms and test-taking strategies for success. The workbook concludes with a full-length math and science practice test|

He jumped 8 points! He used the strategies in this book and did several practice tests as well too. He was much more comfortable and didn't feel pressure when he took the test.
He learned new strategies he didn't know. This book gives very specific details on how to understand the questions and strategies in a very simple way.
He got a 30 and it's a game changer for him and his selection in schools.
The reality of the test-prep publishing world these days is that name-brand companies like Barron's simply contract private tutors, such as me and Vince and Mr. Stewart, to write their books. Hence, the quality of the books is not just a reflection of the company's ability, but also a reflection of the author's expertise. Mr. Stewart seems to have been an excellent choice for Barron's in this instance.
Of course, you should also buy the Real ACT Prep Guide The Real ACT Prep Guide (Book + Bonus Online Content), (Reprint) (Official Act Prep Guide) because it's the only source of Official ACT questions. However, the Real ACT Prep Guide (as you can tell from the many negative customer reviews) has not been updated to reflect the new ACT Writing (essay) portion, while this book from Barron's has in fact been updated to reflect the recent changes. So in that aspect, this book is even better than the real thing.
I would not recommend paying the extra $7 for the CD-ROM; there is more than enough material in the book itself.
For my personalized, frequently updated recommendations for ACT Prep, google "ACT Action Plan - McElroy Tutoring."
CONS: They sometimes only offer one way to solve a problem, no alternative ways.
It would be nicer to have the answers after each section.
