ACT Preparation Online Course

Price: $159.00

UWM at Waukesha and Washington County Campuses are offering a self-paced ACT® online prep course to prepare students for, and address the changes to the new ACT®. We know that every student’s schedule is not the same. The online option offers 24/7 access and flexibility that students need in order to prepare for the exam. This course also comes with five months of access in order to correlate with ACT® testing dates! Your course begins with an online practice ACT® test so that you will be able to identify the areas you should focus on, work on modules, and receive immediate feed­back from lessons and quizzes for each of the five test sections. When you have completed the lessons, you’ll take a follow-up on­line posttest that will assess how much you’ve improved. Students will receive a comprehensive review of all sections of the test, and be more confident and better prepared for the exam.
