Best ACT prep books?

Recommended Posts

I know this has been asked before, but I'm not finding it on the new boards.


My son is going to take the ACT this spring for the first time. What prep books do you recommend? I want him to at least have a practice test so that he knows what to expect.

Our public library had quite a few. (We used Real ACT & Cracking the ACT the most, but Kaplan's, Peterson's, etc. are also helpful.)


It is helpful to get the most recent editions, as there are periodic changes in the format. (Especially if the student plans to take the Writing Section of the ACT.)


There are quite a few strategies for coping with the SHORT time periods for each test (working quickly is just as important as knowing the answer, IMHO). Preparation truly improves the student's score.
