Book Description

The Reading Comprehension portion of the ACT is not solely a speed test, as many people are under the impression; rather, it is also a test of logic. The Complete Guide to ACT Reading explains how to maximize your score by tackling the test in a strategic manner. The book blends principles of comprehension with test-taking tactics and explains how to do this by combining the two. Includes:

Extensive tactics for managing time throughout the Reading Comprehension section, both as a whole and on each passage/question set. This includes both overall time management and specific strategies for each passage or question set.

Learn to focus on the most important elements of a passage without getting lost in the minutiae, and how to identify crucial information more quickly as you progress through the questions. -A detailed description of the techniques for skimming: learn to focus on the most important portions of a passage.

An overview of typical passage topics and themes that will teach you how to “read the test” and identify correct and erroneous answers more accurately and effectively. -The purpose of this overview is to educate you how to “read the exam.”

A separate chapter that is dedicated to each of the primary categories of questions, including literal comprehension, vocabulary-in-context, function/purpose, tone, inference, and point of view.

Examples taken from the third edition of The Real Guide to the ACT, which show how the strategies covered in the book can be applied to questions seen on the actual exam.

This book provides accurate and rigorous preparation designed to teach you exactly what to expect when you sit down to take the real exam, whether your goal is a score of 25 or a score of 36. With passages drawn from the same contemporary sources and authors used on administered ACT exams, this book provides accurate and rigorous preparation.
