Requirements
  • This is a comprehensive and rigorous course. Twenty-nine chapters provide thorough review of all the math you need for the ACT. The course contains all the text from the 400-page book ACT Math Prep Course, so it is fully self-contained. You will not need to get any outside materials for the course.
Description

Every year, students pay $1,000 and more to test prep companies to prepare for the math section of the ACT. Now you can get the same preparation in an online course. Nova's ACT Math Prep Course provides the equivalent of a 2-month, 50-hour course.

Although the ACT math section is difficult, it is very learnable. Nova's ACT Math Prep Course presents a thorough analysis of ACT math and introduces numerous analytic techniques that will help you immensely, not only on the ACT but in college as well. 

Many of the exercises in this course are designed to prompt you to think like an ACT test writer. For example, you will find Duals. These are pairs of similar ACT math problems in which only one property is different. They illustrate the process of creating ACT questions.

Features:

  • Videos! Hundreds of videos explaining the text, examples, and exercises in step-by-step detail.
  • Comprehensive Review:  Twenty-seven chapters provide comprehensive review of ACT math.
  • Mentor Exercises: These exercises provide hints, insight, and partial solutions to ease your transition from seeing ACT problems solved to solving them on your own. 
Who is the target audience?
  • High school students preparing for the ACT
