Summary
"Fully updated to reflect the most current version of the ACT, Up Your Score: ACT remains the test prep and survival guide that kids will actually want to use. Written by Chris Arp, a Princeton graduate and top ACT tutor--with the help of four students who aced the test (and went on to the colleges of their choice)--it's a true insider's guide, filled with effective strategies and tips, delivered with the attitude, smarts, and wit that make Up Your Score the bestselling alternative test-prep series in print. Crush the reading section by developing the Five Habits of Lean Forward Reading. Master the math section through techniques like "plugging in," an amazing trick that simplifies all algebra word problems. Annihilate the English section by absorbing six key punctuation and nine essential grammar rules. Sail through the science section by understanding that it actually tests reasoning. Plus, the latest information on ACT scoring and the essay test, revised in 2015 to be more open-ended and analytical"--
