Written in the same witty and sassy style as its SAT counterpart, Up Your Score: ACT reveals the secrets of that test while keeping kids engaged and interested with its irreverent humour. Top Manhattan tutor Chris Arp, backed by his colleagues at New York's Veritas Test Prep, shares insider tips and strategies that get results. Teenage guest authors keep him real and contribute their wisdom as well. The ACT has four sections (English, Math, Reading, and Science), with an optional writing section, and the book tells kids everything they need to know on each subject.\ It shows how to ace the Reading section by developing the Five Habits of Lean Forward Reading, and to master the Maths section by "plugging in," an amazing trick that simplifies all algebra word problems. Woven into the expert instruction are jokes and references to pop culture, plus there are quirky extras-an ACT fitness regime, snacking suggestions, tongue-in-cheek fashion and beauty tips-that keep teenagers interested and amused.
