OU-C offers ACT preparation courses


Ohio University-Chillicothe is sponsoring two preparation courses to help area high school students and Ohio University College of Education students study for the ACT (American College Test). The ACT, America's most widely accepted college entrance exam, is required for admission to various colleges and programs.

The first ACT prep course will be held in Bennett Hall from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on March 16, and sign-in will begin at 8:30 a.m. It will provide an in-depth review of the English, reading, and science sections of the ACT. Students will also receive an overview of the writing portion of the ACT. Information, hints, and techniques for coping with test anxiety and taking the test will be covered. A light lunch will be provided

The second ACT prep course will be held in Bennett Hall from 8 a.m. to noon on March 19, with sign-in beginning at 7:30 a.m. It will provide an in-depth review of mathematics, and lunch will not be provided.

The cost of the first course is $100, and the registration deadline is March 4. The cost of the second course is $50, and the registration deadline is March 14. Students can take both courses for a discounted rate of $140. Registration is available online at   https://www.ohio.edu/chillicothe/community/index.cfm.

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 3rd has five practice tests.
