Counterpoint Launches New E-Book: A Parent's Guide to the ACT
San Marcos, California, December 13, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Counterpoint is proud to announce the release of its new e-book, A Parent’s Guide to the ACT. With this download, parents will have everything they need to know about the ACT at their fingertips, ensuring they’re properly equipped to lead their student toward success.
This e-book provides a comprehensive overview of the most important aspects of the ACT exam, from its origins in 1959 to its present day iteration that students will take before college. Parents can even learn how the ACT differentiates itself from the SAT by being specifically designed to measure career readiness and applicable skills that are used in college and beyond.
The ACT exam is divided into four distinct sections: English, math, reading and science. Each section is scored individually, and the student’s total score consists of the scores of all sections averaged together. Parents can learn more about the scoring system and discover why it’s always better for a student to guess rather than leave an answer blank in Counterpoint Test Prep’s e-book.
Counterpoint’s e-book also covers the optional fifth section of the ACT, writing. In this section, a student will have 40 minutes to write a complete essay on a preset topic. While the test itself will give a student an option to take the writing section, many universities require it to be considered for admission. A student should know the requirements of his or her preferred college in advance. The scoring system for the writing portion is unique as well, and this e-book will provide all the necessary details.
Counterpoint Test Prep prides itself on its comprehensive courses and effective teaching style, and that’s the same methodology poured into this e-book. Like its courses, this book was written by teaching professionals with genuine, extensive experience teaching test-taking strategies and essential material.
