Complete Courses for Each Subject



Through the practice tests, students have the opportunity to review the skills that they need help with most, thus preparing them for anything they might see on the ACT English test. What’s more, the course includes a basic English glossary, which contains all the essential terms for the grammar skills most likely to be tested.




The ACT measures the limits of your knowledge of over 75 different and distinct math skills, and by the end of the ACT Mastery Math course, you’ll have covered them all. The full-length practice ACT math tests help students by reviewing the skills they most need help with and preparing them for anything that can come up on the ACT. Moreover, the course includes a basic math glossary, which includes definitions for the math concepts frequently tested on the ACT.



Reading level is the gate to a higher ACT reading score, and vocabulary is its key. To have the stamina and understanding necessary to master the ACT reading passages, students not only need to be equipped with reading strategies but a college reading level as well. ACT Mastery Online Student App teaches students the tactics needed to quickly decipher reading passages, all while teaching students more than 200 of the most commonly missed ACT-level vocabulary words. The full-length practice ACT reading tests help students improve reading stamina, confidence, and ability to concentrate during the ACT reading test.



This course guides students through the skills they need to master the ACT science test. It helps them overcome the overwhelming feeling of disorientation that comes with having to speed through seven science passages and 40 questions within a 35-minute time limit. This course helps students pick apart the test piece by piece so that they can understand all of it and can answer each question quickly and to the best of their ability.

The full-length practice ACT science tests are designed to simulate a real ACT testing environment and help students to improve their speed, certainty, and skill when deciphering ACT-level passages, graphs, and charts.
