Format: Paperback
In preparation for the ACT, I have studied the Cliffestestprep ACT book closely. And in the process, I have seen MISTAKES in the answers.
On page 33, "5 x 4=25".
on page 159, question #11 on practice test2, the answers are mistakenly copied from question #10...so the answers don't make any sense for question #11!
These are just two mistakes that I've seen, but judging by that, I wouldn't be suprised to find more. I wish I could return the book, but since I already marked it up, I cannot. Don't buy this book, get a more helpful ACT resource. This book has 4 practice tests, but because of the mistakes, I am relucant to go further.
Finally, the practice problems are more difficult than real ACT problems: CLiffs give you long-winded and confusing explanations for problems you don't even need to know for the actual ACT. I'm sure you can find more consice explanations in other resources. In short, this is not the best choice for getting ready for the ACT.
UPDATE: I recently checked out Princeton Review's CRACKING THE ACT 2002; I highly recommend it for great strategies, tips, and practice material. I also recommend GETTING INTO THE ACT, which is the only review book sponsored by the ACT itself. This is the ONLY book with REAL full-length ACT tests from a few years back;thus, you get familiar with the format of the test and its degree of difficulty. These two books should be all you need to prepare...going through these books..I realized just how useless CliffsTestPrep ACT was.

Do not buy this book if you are looking for a guide to prepare for the ACT...this is because the book only has about 15 pages of review per test. So, if you need a review book, I suggest that you go to the Princeton Review book, which does a pretty good job.
However, if you have used up all the practice tests in the book that you are currently using, then I strongly reccommend this book. The book offers four practice tests (even though the cover says it offers two tests.) Each answer is fully explained, which makes the tests a lot better than the other books.
So, if you need review, don't add this book to your cart. If you need more tests, this book is a very good source.

I've found the science practice tests and other tests to be pretty inaccurate. I've taken the ACT three times, and the science test is nothing like the practice tests in this book. The passages and experiments are much too simple (the carbon cycle, for example) with questions that are much too hard--sometimes absolutely impossible. The explanations of answers oftentimes don't make sense. And, unlike the real test, the science practice tests required some actual science knowledge. ACT science really just tests your reasoning skills. This book is also misleading about time, since the passages took much less time to read than they normally would. I buy these books FOR the practice tests, so I was disappointed that the tests were so misleading. I would recommend getting books produced by Kaplan. They're much more accurate.

Warning: This ACT prep book is terrible! The tests do not accurately represent how well a student will do on the actual ACT. Overall, the questions are more difficult than the real test. If you want to lose all confidence and frustrate yourself, buy this book. On the other hand, if you are looking for practice tests and good prep help, do your research and select a better test aid!
