A large number of students who have studied from The Real ACT Prep Guide feel that it is necessary to go through this ACT test guide if you want to practice on real questions.

However, it is felt that the strategies for answering questions and the explanations for the right and wrong answers have been discussed in more detail in other ACT guides. Especially the students who are preparing for a retest feel that the section, of this ACT test guide, that deals with the format of the questions is not required as they’re already familiar with the type of questions asked.

This Kaplan ACT test guide comes with a CD ROM containing 2 full length practice tests. There are 2 more practice tests in the Kaplan ACT test guide book. It also contains ACT content review and strategies for a high ACT score. ‘Cracking the ACT’ has been found to be very useful by most students as far as reviewing the basic concepts of high school academics is concerned.
