OU-C to offer ACT preparation course


Ohio University-Chillicothe is sponsoring an ACT (American College Test) preparation course to help area high school students and Ohio University College of Education students study for the ACT from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Aug. 29 in Bennett Hall. Sign-in will begin at 8:30 a.m., and a light lunch will be provided.

 The cost of the course is $100, and registration is available online at: https://www.ohio.edu/chillicothe/community/index.cfm.   Registration deadline is Aug. 21. For more information, call OU-C’s Office of Continuing Education & Workforce Development 740-774-7226 or email finkj@ohio.edu.

The ACT Prep course will provide an in-depth review of the English, reading, and science sections of the ACT.  Students will also receive an overview of the math and writing portion of the ACT. Information, hints, and techniques for coping with test anxiety and taking the test will be covered. 

The ACT is America's most widely accepted college entrance exam, which is required for admission to various colleges and programs.

The Real ACT Prep Guide (2nd or 3rd edition) will be a requirement for the entire workshop. Students must purchase the textbook and bring it to the workshop. Students and parents can find it available online from several vendors as well as from the ACT online bookstore at http://www.act.org. Some students may already have this recommended guide, but it must be a clean, unmarked copy for use during the workshop. The second edition has three full practice tests and the third edition has five practice sets.
