It’s one of the cruel truths of young adulthood that you spend four years volunteering, participating in student groups and working hard in class, and then a single standardized test taken on a Saturday morning can completely undermine you.
Standardized test are, in a word, stressful.
But there’s no better remedy for that stress than being well prepared.
The Mentor Public Library had its first of two ACT prep sessions last Saturday. That session focused on general test preparation and the reading courses. The next session is from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 29. Its focus will be the science and math sections of the ACT. You can register for it here.
These sessions provide practical experience in terms of the types of questions you’ll see on the ACT, and they also offer strategies for test prep (that, by the way, work on tests besides the ACT.)
All sessions will be led by Dr. John Foster, one of our reference librarians at Mentor Public Library. Foster has a doctorate in history from the University of Washington and has taught at both the high school and college level.
And, yes, all of our sessions are free and open to anyone preparing for the ACT.
If you have any questions on our ACT prep sessions, you can call the library at (440) 255-8811 ext. 215.
