ACT prep course to be offered at UT

January 23, 2012 | Events, UToday



The University of Toledo is offering an intensive ACT prep course for high school students from Thursday, Feb. 16, through Tuesday, March 27, in order to prepare them for the April exam.

This customized course consists of 16 hours of test preparation (two nights per week for four weeks) and six hours of pre- and post-testing.

Taught by certified teachers, this face-to-face ACT prep course will help students prepare for all four sections of the test, plus the optional writing section. Students enrolled will have access to two official retired ACT tests. In addition, students will receive data reports from pre- and post-testing targeting specific areas they need to focus on.
Students also will receive two textbooks that include test-taking strategies, quizzes, additional practice tests, and a review of skills needed to achieve a high score on the ACT.

The cost for this course is $249. Fees include pre- and post-tests with diagnostic feedback, student workbooks, certified instruction, UT parking, taxes, and shipping and handling.

Children of UT alumni and employees will receive a discounted cost of $199.

“UT can help all students reach their potential. The prep class will offer students the opportunity to identify their strengths and their weaknesses, giving them the ability to focus on the areas that need improvement,” said Julie Radwanski, program coordinator in the Learning Enhancement Center. “This, in turn, is going to reduce anxiety about taking the test. The less anxious students are, the better chance they have of doing well on the exam.”

The course will be held on UT’s Main Campus in the Learning Enhancement Center, located in Carlson Library Room 0200.

Deadline to register is Tuesday, Feb. 7. Class size is limited. To learn more on how to register, click here.
