  • Great Book for Its first edition

    By Speechman528368263827638/7
    I used this book to study for the ACT, alongside a personal tutor. It was a great way to introduce a new section before reviewing in depth. It could use more gradually complex problems in math and science to increase rigor. Additionally, it would be helpful to have good and bad examples of essays to compare against. Overall, I liked it!
  • Very informational

    By Chaska mom
    The book is very to the point; there's no confusion over what it is explaining. Covers all of the ACT sections and provides more than enough practice problems.

  • Worked for me, it'll work for you

    By Bahooba112
    The ACT Accelerated is an excellent study guide for the ACT. The book lays out just about every last math formula, semi-colon rule, and and apostrophe placement you'll need for the ACT in an easy to read and engaging format. Using this book, I raised my score from a 29 to a 32. That's three points, so I guess that's three stars, and I'll tack another one on just as an extra little thank you to the ACT Accelerated.

  • Helped me improve 4 points!

    By Gahshshshs
    This book really helped me go in depth with my learning of the test and show me how I could better myself for this test. I had the option of reading the information or watching the information, which I really enjoyed. This book really helped me with my math section because I was able to see the work being done and then use what I just watched and apply it to my practice tests and the real ACT.

    The act accelerated book has revolutionized act prep for me. I live abroad and prior to hearing about this book the only way to prepare was by taking diagnostic tests... Boring! Now with this book you can read through interactive chapters that make the process more fun.
