Not good for kids with ADHD
I tried to use this but the book was super thick and I just couldn't get into it, I used an online interactive study guide instead and I scored a 26 on my ACT. My sister did well with this book, the only difference between us is I have ADHD and she doesnt.
From the picture this books looks manageable, but when I received it it was HUGE. I have yet to open it because there is so much information (which is good or bad). If your looking for a really extensive ACT book here you go. If not get the CliffsTestPrep ACT (Cliffs Test Prep ACT).
The best book for ACT preperation
I bought 4 books to prepare for my ACT exam (Princeton Review (Cracking the ACT, 2007 Edition), Kaplan ACT 2007 Comprehensive Program, McGraw-Hill's 10 ACT Practice Tests, and The Real ACT Prep Guide). I found the Real ACT Prep Guide to be the best one as it has three real practice exams at the end (as close as u can get to the real exam).As far as the preparation material provided for preparation, it is not as good as Kaplan's or Princeton's. i would rate the four books as follows:
1.The Real ACT Prep Guide. -- the practice papers at the end of the book are real ACT exams.
2.Kaplan ACT 2007 Comprehensive Program --(The practice papers are as difficult as the real ACT exam (but defenitly not as close as the rela exam)and the preparation material provided is also good but they dont have any sample essays to crack the writing test)
3.Princeton Review (Cracking the ACT, 2007 Edition)-- (the preparation material provided is the best compared with the Kaplan and the real ACT books and the papaers at the end are comparable with the Kaplan's.)
4.McGraw-Hill's 10 ACT Practice Tests -- the 10 papers are a good practice but they are comparitively easier than the real exam.
If you plan to buy just one book to prepare for the ACT exam then you should buy The Real ACT Prep Guide.
