My son used this book and went through it entirely before the test. His scores from the diagnostic test to the last test in the book improved each time; however, he came out of the ACT almost in tears. He said that it wasn't anything like the practice tests in the book. His official ACT scores were lower than all the scores that he made in the book.
I am giving it two stars, because it did prepare him for time limits and the flow of the test. He is going to use The Real Act before the September test.

I bought a set of ACT books & a separate set of SAT books for Christmas 18 months prior to my daughter needing to take these tests. Just for kicks I paid for a pre-test in both categories to see where she stood. She went from a 26 to a 31, but honestly only used the books for 6 months & not the 18 she had. I am not going to tell you that every single point she gained was from this book, but I will tell you that this book definitely helped her study, focus & understand that these tests are very serious. I have bought 3 more sets for our 3 other kids to start prepping all because we know that the higher these scores, the more opportunities they have to apply to top schools & gain scholarships. The topics, information, tips, practice tests & all other components of this book have made a difference & I believe increased her ACT score several points (the rest was school & other at home activities we were doing). For the parents or grandparents looking for something kids can put in their backpacks & pull out while waiting at practices, before school, at lunch, while grounded or just before bed - this is an idea that shouldn't be overlooked.

I have been using editions of this book to prepare students for the ACT for 3 years. It's ok, but please be aware that the math on the real ACT is likely to be significantly more difficult than the examples in this book. Also the Science on the real ACT has moved on a bit since this book was written. As far as I'm aware, this book has not been revised significantly in 3 years, and it's time for an overhaul. Also, it is disappointing that the 2011 edition has fewer practice tests in it, than previous editions - one less in the book, and one less available in electronic format. The previous 5 tests in the book were barely adequate preparation, and now with only 4 in the book, you shouldn't be relying on this as your only resource to ensure that you are adequately prepared.

This book is annoying me enough that I had to stop in the middle of a practice test to write this review.

Potential buyers take note:

-- Verbal section is mostly idiotic. 4 out of 5 analogies are simply synonyms, i.e. WILY : SLY. Antonym questions always contain an exact synonym, a couple totally random words, a poor synonym, and then the answer. Moreover, all of the vocabulary is of about average difficulty. Reading comprehension passages are of less sophistication than I saw on PowerPREP. I have finished each verbal section so far in 12-17 minutes.

-- Math sections only give you 30 minutes to complete, which is incorrect as the quant section is now 45 minutes on the real test. You won't need more than 30, though; again, lots of simple algebra, areas of simple shapes, etc. In a set of 3 data analysis questions on practice test 1, all 3 were one-step questions, i.e. they involved just reading the graph, no calculations or additional analysis.

-- The tests on the CD are not computer adaptive; they are just a series of questions in electronic format as opposed to on paper. Maybe useful to practice on the computer, but not a simulation of how the actual test will work.

Waste of time.

I bought this text (2013 edition) along with the highly discounted previous edition (2011-2012 ed.) in order to get a lot of practice sets. First of all, I was surprised to see that the practice tests from the math section are way too easy compared with the actual GRE. They are so easy that if you use only this text to practice math, there is a very high chance you're gonna fail the test. Second, this edition has the same practice tests than those contained in the previous edition. I mean, the same, word for word. I wouldn't recommend this textbook because the level of difficulty is very low, and because the editors didn't even care in creating at least one new practice set during a two-year period.

Product arrived quickly and in good condition. My teen took the assessment test and is now feeling much more confident in regards to taking the actual ACT test. It is a good way to preview and prepare for the test.

My daughter found it helpful. She took the ACT again because she wasn't satisfied with her first score. She felt like she did better the second time since she had the book to study.
