Omaha ACT Test Prep Questions

Q?

Is there an easier/better test date?

A.

No.  Many have heard that certain test administration such as the June test are easier tests or have an easier scale.  This is not true.  All tests are have roughly the same difficulty and all scales are predetermined.  This means that even though a test in September or December would typically be taken by more seniors and academically motivated juniors, it will NOT have a harder scale.

Q?

What is the average score improvement?

A.

The average increase in ACT Composite Score by our students is 2.9.  This is calculated by comparing the student's highest previous ACT Composite Score from officially administered ACT tests (not diagnostic tests) to the student's highest ACT Composite Score from officially administered ACT tests taken after completing our program.

Q?

Do you offer the course online?

A.

No, we only offer in-person seminars in Omaha, Nebraska.

Q?

Do you offer a guarantee?

A.

No, but students can retake the course for free, no matter what their score improvement was.

Q?

How can I sign up my student to retake your ACT course?

A.

Once a student has completed our ACT test prep course, he or she can retake all or part of the course for free.  To sign up to retake the course, send us an email indicating (1) student's name, (2) seminar starting date, and (3) if there is more than one session time, which session time that the student will attend.

Q?

Have your two instructors really taken the ACT 77 times?

A.

Yes.  Patrick Coyle has taken the ACT 65 times since 1997!  Adam Snoza has taken the ACT 12 times.  Effective in 2010, the ACT imposed a lifetime limit of 12 tests.

Q?

Which seminar should my student take?

A.

We recommend that students schedule the seminar so that they can attend every class and can complete all of the assignments.  Therefore, consider your student’s sport seasons, extracurricular activities, and time periods away from Omaha when choosing a seminar.

Q?

How do I register my student for the ACT test?

A.

Go to www.act.org to register.  You will need a credit card to pay for the fees.

Q?

Does my student need to take the Writing test?

A.

The ACT Writing test is optional, but some colleges recommend or require the Writing test for acceptance and/or placement.  At www.act.org search whether the Writing test is Required, Recommended, or Not Needed by your student’s colleges.  Even if a college states that the Writing test is just Recommended, students should still take the Writing test to make their applications more competitive.

Q?

How many times can a student take the ACT test?

A.

12 times.
