ACT Workshop ACT Workshop for sophomores and juniors: Chad Cargill, an ACT expert, is offering a workshop at Missouri State on March 21st. This workshop is a practical hands-on instruction session. While in high school, Chad took the ACT 18 times and raised his score from a 19 to a 32. This workshop is packed full of relevant, practical information on how to increase your ACT score as he did. It shows you that the ACT is beatable and that each test will ask you the same questions just worded differently. The workshop covers what will be on the test and how to master the techniques. The workshop is not a practice test. It covers general ideas about the ACT as a whole and the individual sections of English (including what the test-makers are looking for and the relevant English rules needed for the test), Math (including exactly what formulas and rules you will need to answer virtually every question), Reading (including three strategies on how to best take the reading comprehension section), and Science (including common question types and strategies to understand and beat the science reasoning section). Space is limited. Register today in the counseling center. The cost is $30 and money is due when you register.
