Area high school students planning on taking the ACT this spring are encouraged to prepare for the test with a course offered at three of Motlow College locations in Moore County, Fayetteville and McMinnville.
The ACT prep class focuses on the four areas of the ACT: English, mathematics, reading and science. Emphasis will be on test-taking skills, logical analysis, and proper pacing. Practice tests in each of the four areas will be administered during the course and at the conclusion.
The cost is $60 and students will need to purchase a textbook for $30.95. The textbook will only be available the first night of class and exact change, or a check made payable to Motlow College Bookstore, will be required.
Registration forms can be obtained online at www.mscc.edu/cpes. Separate forms are available for each Motlow location offering the course. Completed forms are to be mailed or faxed to Extended Services at Motlow College. Registration is not complete until payment has been received.
Students wishing to attend the ACT prep class at Motlow’s McMinnville Center can do so on Tuesdays, Feb. 28, March 6, 13, 20 and April 3, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. There is no class scheduled for March 27. Sheila Gann will be the instructor. The course is limited to 35 students and the deadline to register is Feb. 22 at 4:30 p.m.
For information on the classes offered at the Moore County campus or the Fayetteville center, call (931) 393-1760.
The classes are designed to prepare students for the national ACT test date of April 14. Taking the prep class does not register a student to sit for the actual ACT.
Students must register separately with ACT to take the national exam. The deadline to register is March 9. Information about how to register for the test can be obtained at www.ACT.org.
