How To Prepare for the ACT - Eddie's Story.
Eddie was a typical Junior in High School (16 years old). He attended a public school in southern California, but was looking - along with his family - to get accepted to an Ivy League College - or top college in California.
Edie took a rigorous schedule in school: 7 Advanced Placement (APs), Honors courses, and was head of several after-school extracurricular activities. Eddie always tested way above average, but never had achieved a perfect score on any standardized examination.
And Eddie's parents, perhaps, just like you, could afford to send him to an Ivy League School, if he were accepted.
So they searched for the best colleges in America, and the usual suspects came up: Harvard, Princeton, Cornell and Stanford - and top state universities like UT-Austin, Berkeley, and an amazing college named Stanford University.
They put together a comprehensive admissions list: safeties, reaches, and some in between...
Here's where Eddie wanted to apply - "reach schools":
University of California - Berkeley
... Stanford University
These college Acceptance rates were extremely challenging. How could Eddie gain admission?
After researching these schools, Eddie realized that in order to get accepted, he would likely have to score in the top 3% percentile, meaning he would have to beat more than 97% of the applicants who applied.
But could he do it?
However, he Eddie had 5 months to prepare, and little test prep ACT guidance... until we met his family.
...They knew there had to be a better way than just buying some ACT test prep books online and hoping to study on his own.
Even if he had the motivation, intelligence, and drive to succeed, the ACT examination was one of the most challenging exams one can take before high school.
....So He found our course on the ACT.
"The World's best ACT Prep Course" - Wow, Seriously?
Yes, ranked by U.S. News and several education publications.
When Eddie father, Lee, called our company, he asked two questions: "can you help our son achieve a perfect ACT score?" and, "how soon could we get started with your ACT prep tutors?" We had answers for him about the ACT test...
We actually got the same questions from his father as we typically receive for other exams, but there was a sense of urgency, which we understood. After all, the ACT exam is the most important exam that any student had throughout their academic "careers."
Ok, so you're wondering... of course, this is the part where you tell us how great your program is and how within X days he got an 100% increase in his score.... wrong!
In fact, ACT struggled on the first ACT practice exam. When he enrolled in our ACT prep program, he took more than 3 practice exams before seeing any meaningful increase in his ACT scores.
Here's an Honest (and Interesting fact) about OUr ACT prep:
More than 1190 students have taken our ACT course and it took on average more than 2 weeks before students saw a 12% increase in their scores.
Why are we telling you this?
Because our client satisfaction and ACT results are the highest in the industry, and you need to know it does take time... but we ALWAYS get the job done, right.
When you get accepted, like Eddie did, to the best colleges... because of our ACT prep and your hard work, you'll never forget the people and ACT tutors who helped you prepare. That's another fact that we've seen many times as we prepare students for the ACT examination.
Now here's another fact:
Once Eddie took the ACT exam, he increased his ACT English score by more than 18 percentiles and his ACT Math score by more than 21 percentiles, ACT Reading by 15 percentiles and ACT science by 24 percentiles. Eddie reached the pinnacle, a Perfect 36 ACT score, on the Fall Exam after his junior year in high school.
We'll tell you in a little bit about how he accomplished such an amazing feat: to get a perfect score on the ACT and to gain admission for Ivy League schools (and Stanford).
...And now, you're wondering, what worked to increase his ACT scores?
Here's what he knew, that you now know about the ACT Exam...
How'd Eddie increase his ACT score so much?
The simple answer?
Hard work. Amazing ACT tutors. Tons of effort on all sides.
After Eddie took 9 practice ACT exams, more than 8,800 ACT practice questions, and all of his 1080 minutes of private ACT tutoring, he beat the odds of a perfect ACT score: almost 1 in 4,000. But it wasn't luck, it was again... hard work and by taking our "World's Best ACT Course" - see below how to signup.
But don't listen to us... hear from Eddie and his family about our ACT prep...
"Your ACT Prep course and private tutors are rockstars. I started in the 20s and before long, increase my ACT score to a perfect 36. It took me hundreds of hours, but I'm so proud of what I accomplished with your help. Thank you."
And now, we'll share some helpful ACT prep tips for you too...
You Must-Know these Steps to Prepare for Your ACT Exam:
Step #1: Create a custom study plan for your ACT TEST prep.
Having a custom ACT study plan makes all the difference. Whether we help you or not, make sure you're studying at least 2 to 5 hours per week leading up to the actual ACT exam. You should focus on the ACT prep practice questions that are easiest first and then gradually increase in difficulty until you can handle beginner, intermediate and advanced questions with ease.
Step #2: set a flexible schedule that works.
Having a flexible schedule - i.e. one that balances your core school work with your extracurricular activities and your ACT prep is so important. That's why we built our ACT prep on-demand course. With our on-demand course, you can watch videos about the ACT and prepare anytime you need.
Step #3: Set a goal to achieve every two weeks. And don't break it.
Every two weeks, you should accomplish something new on the ACT exam. Perhaps it's understand more complex word problems, or even being able to read verbal passages 10 seconds faster. Whatever your goal - small or big - achieve it by setting goals and reaching them.
