Last spring I shared with you the ACT Test Prep resources my rising senior used. She took the ACT last June, made the score she hoped for and was accepted to the college at the top of her list! Now that my son is a rising senior, we are using the same resources.
I now am on the ‘other’ side of homeschooling high school. I have a graduating senior, a rising senior and a rising freshman! Our third child will begin high school in the fall. Homeschooling high school is now one of my favorite times with my children. What a privilege to go through all these steps, processes and preparations. I am confident that the resources we have used have helped prepare my children.

ACT Strategy Smart
Ace the ACT with the strategies you need for a high score. Written by America’s Top ACT Expert!
My daughter, soon to be graduating senior, is our resident history, language and fine arts wiz. She took the ACT in the fall. So the end of her junior year, last summer and early part of this senior year were a good time for ACT test prep! Soon after that, she turned this resource over to her brother, a junior.
The ACT Strategy Smart suggests four weekly study sessions. Each week covers English, Math, Science, and Reading portions of the exam. An optional fifth week shares strategies for taking the ACT Writing Test.

Bob Miller’s Math for the ACT
Bob Miller’s Math for the ACT is written from the author to the student as if the author were right in front of your student, teaching. Because Bob Miller has found that students have problems with certain subjects, he goes into greater detail on factoring, algebraic fractions, trig and percentage problems.
About Bob Miller
Mr. Miller has his M.S. in math from Polytechnic Institute of NYU. “I always feel great when students tell me they used to hate math or couldn’t do math and now they like it more and can do it better.” Of Math for the ACT, he says, “I do know that this book will help you get the score you need to get into the college of your choice.”
What does Math for the ACT include?
Bob Miller includes 15 detailed chapters on math topics addressed on the ACT plus important miscellany and four sample ACT math exams with answers.
We appreciate that Mr. Miller speaks of math as a “great adventure” and shares “Bob says…” quotes throughout.
All math begins with whole numbers. Master them and you will begin to speak the language of math. ~ Bob Miller
