For the more than one million high school students who take the ACT Assessment each year, any assistance helps; a few more points could influence the rest of their lives. So the ACT Official Guide is a wise investment. It's updated for the 1997-98 testing season with real ACT tests and pragmatic strategies. Just the anxiety reduction alone effected by taking practice tests and knowing what to expect helps avoid a test-day fiasco. Getting into the ACT is written by ACT, with illustrative samples for the English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science Reasoning sections. The preliminary practice allows students to bone up on trouble spots, learn what to expect, gain confidence, and do their best on the big day.

If you really need to know the 'format' of the test, you don't have to buy this book. Buy Barron's or Kaplan, or Princeton Review. What this book is REALLY useful at is giving you an expectation of the level of questions the ACT is going to ask you.
For instance, Barron's ACT questions are much more challenging than the real ACT questions. However, the questions that appear here are of the SAME level of difficulty, partly because the questions are from 'retired' ACTs of 1996 (or some other year, I am not too sure)
If you already have "10 Real SATs", this is pretty much the same as that book, except it is produced by the ACT for the ACT.
The only difference would be that this book, unlike the "10 Real SATs", does not have 10 tests. It has only 2. However, this book has detailed explanations that will give you an edge if you would like to study more on the ACTs.
If you got the money, buy this, and go through the book 3-4 days before the real ACTs. You will see a definite increase in your scores. I certainly did; I got a 35 on my last ACT.
Also, if you are looking for a book that will "teach" you the material, this isn't it. The book contains mainly strategies.
In conclusion, if you are looking for general information in regards to the ACT and some sample question, just to get familiar with the test - this is the book for you. If you are looking for more than that, you should buy this book and another one with the math/science material.
