ACT preparation course offered in March and April on Motlow Moore County campus

Jan. 21, 2016

Area high school students planning to take the ACT can prepare for the test by enrolling in a five-week ACT preparation class at Motlow State Community College on the Moore County campus. Classes will meet on each Monday in March (7, 14, 21, 28), and on Monday, April 4, from 6- 8:30 p.m. in Simon Hall, room 130.

The registration deadline is March 2, and the course is limited to 30 students. Registration forms can be obtained on Motlow's web site at Completed forms can be mailed or faxed to the address indicated on the form. However, registration is not complete until payment is received.

The cost is $60, plus $30.95 for a textbook, with each to be paid separately. Registrants should write a check for the registration fee to Motlow College. For a textbook, checks should be written to the Motlow College Bookstore. Textbooks will be available only on the first night of class. Those wishing to purchase a book with cash are asked to have the exact amount.

The ACT preparation class focuses on four areas of the ACT: English, mathematics, reading and science. Emphasis will be on test-taking skills, logical analysis and pacing oneself. Practice tests in each of the four areas will be administered during and at the conclusion of each course.

The ACT preparation classes are designed to prepare students for the national ACT on April 9, but taking the class does NOT register a student to sit for the actual ACT. Students must register separately with ACT to take a national exam; the registration deadline is March 4. For more information regarding the ACT visit
