Prep Class for ACT
ACT Class continued....
The institutes conducting classes are quite flexible in tailoring a schedule that meets your requirements and fits into your daily schedule. Most institutes take an initial diagnostic practice test to gauge your scoring capability in the test. Then they provide you with sound advice on the type of class that is best suited for you. You have the option of choosing from a variety of programs that an institute offers.
Kaplan is one such institution which offers a wide variety of courses. You can check out the various options available at its web site, www.kaptest.com. In addition to classes, Kaplan also offers private tutoring, online courses and college admission consulting. However, the category of the class available for you depends on the center that you are registered with. Most institutes have centers in a number of cities across the country and generally the type of class offered may vary slightly from center to center. For instance, private tutoring is available in selected Kaplan centers only. However, their online classes can be accessed from anywhere and will be the same for everyone.
Do not despair if you feel that a reputed institute is out of your financial reach. Do not forget that a good institute cannot ensure your success in the test. It is ultimately your commitment and hard work that will earn you good scores. So, if you are looking for able guidance and advice for your preparation, then a class being conducted by a local institute will also be quite helpful. You should pay a great deal of attention to whatever is being taught in the class. Make a study group with other students attending the same class. You can chalk out a program wherein your study group can get together at home and review what has been learnt in the class. You can discuss the content amongst yourselves and solve your doubts by interacting with each other. The best way to gain knowledge on any subject area is by learning from each others experiences and mistakes.
However, if you are not comfortable studying in a group, then combining your class with some self study at home will also do you a lot of good in the long run. You should keep aside a couple of hours daily for your content review. This may be a little difficult considering that you will have your high school assignments to be completed, if you are still attending school. In addition to your school commitments, your teachers at the class will also give you some tasks to be completed at home. But you will have to meticulously plan your schedule in such a way that you are able to optimally utilize the time available. You should make it a point to make a note of all the doubts that come up during your review at home. You should then get them clarified by your teacher at the class the next day. If you are shelling out money for attending the class then make the best use of it or else it will be a complete waste of time, effort and money.
You should try and get in touch with students who've scored high in the test by attending classes. They will be able to give you invaluable advice in choosing the right class for your preparation. A number of high school and college offices have information on classes being held near your locality. You should be aware of any such class being held in your vicinity, so that you can register for it at the earliest opportunity.
