Must-have strategy book. 9 febbraio 2013
Di blueelysium - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
The ACT for Bad Test Takers is a must-have if you're prepping for the ACT. It's basically a battle plan designed to raise an average score (teens/low 20's) to the higher 20's. But really, anyone taking the ACT can benefit from it if they take the strategy laid out in the book seriously.

But yes, to avoid any confusion: this isn't a "prep" book in the sense of having "prep questions" in it. It's a strategy book. Which is actually why you should read it.

Reading BTT is like having a conversation - a realistic, straight-to-the-point, "here's what you need to know to do well on the ACT" conversation with a team of professional tutors. They tell you how to approach each section, tell you what tradeoffs you should and shouldn't make (e.g. quality vs. quantity), and tell you how to prepare yourself on the day of the exam. If you're good at standardized testing, some of it may be familiar ground. If you're not good at standardized testing, then this book is honestly like a survival guide when you're stuck in the wilderness. But either way, you probably don't know the strategy that's laid out in this book, because no other book approaches the ACT (intelligently) in this way. Thus, you should read it.

Price-wise, it's a lot less expensive than hours of tutoring from agencies who may or may not know how to do well on the ACT. You can get through this book in 3-4 hours, so if you see it as paying $5 an hour for an empirically proven strategy, rather than paying hundreds for an agency you've never heard of, who happens to have hung flyers in your school hallway, to talk at you in a crowded gymnasium -- this is a really good deal. Side note: because the book is written by tutors, it also talks about how to be a smart consumer when hiring tutors.

It's also a book you can freaking read. Which may sound self-evident, but as someone who has spent hours beating their head against a desk trying to get through thicker "prep books" that don't actually say anything about what you are supposedly "prepping" for, I appreciate a book that's meant for high school students to pick up and get through without any trouble.

Last thing: the hidden gem in BTT is the FAQ section, which has questions like: What if I take the test tomorrow? How many times should I take the ACT? How do I build up my stamina for the ACT? Should I take the ACT or the SAT? Can I skip more than the recommended number of questions? (This question relates to the strategy of the book.)

So, give this book a chance. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

A must have for any highschooler! 15 aprile 2013
Di Gretchensun - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This book is one every parent with a high school student should buy if you want them to have every advantage with college admissions. It is not about the "content" everyone learns in school, but about "how" to take the test based upon the author's many years of experience.
The strategies make so much sense, but nobody explains them like this author because he has spent so much time analyzing (and taking!)the ACT so he can pass the knowledge on to his students.
It is well-written, and frankly, brilliant.

A Breakthrough in Standardized Test Taking. 22 giugno 2013
Di MaddieM - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I wish I had learned this strategy before taking the ACT and getting tutoring from other places. I think every student is taught to rush through and get to every question for quantity over quality. Even though I earned a score in the 30's on the ACT, I believe I could have boosted my score the few more points that I needed to get into my first-choice college if I had this strategy beforehand. I am thrilled that my younger brother will have the opportunity to apply and to practice the lessons taught in the book before he takes his first ACT this fall.

No matter what the challenge, confidence improves outcome.

This book offers insights into the test itself and is useful for the both student who has planned ahead as well as the student who is preparing at the last minute.
