Raise your ACT score with the most comprehensive, scientific and accountable method of preparing for high-stakes standardized tests. With the help of professional University of Tennessee instructors, learn how to complete test problems based on question frequency, difficulty, substantive knowledge, curriculum and alternative test-taking strategies. Students will also learn how to maximize their score in the allotted time. Begin the course by taking an official off-record ACT test (don’t forget to bring two “#2” pencils). Receive feedback on specific areas and let our instructors successfully guide you through the exam based on your data. At the end of the program, students take another official off-record ACT exam. Once you receive your post-test data, our instructors will meet one-on-one to provide a final study plan in preparation to the real exam. A calculator is not necessary, but if a student chooses to use one, it must be a calculator permitted by ACT. Check here to see if your calculator is approved:
