AUM's ACT Preparation course helps students improve their scores.

Know What to Expect

Any exam is difficult if you don't know what to expect. Studying the test format and completing multiple practice tests will go a long way toward preparing you for exam day.

Refresh Your Memory

The ACT covers years' worth of curriculum, and you may have forgotten some key material. Our skill review will refresh your memory for each exam section, focusing on the most frequently tested concepts.

Master Your Nerves

Most people feel anxious when being tested, which can have a negative impact on their score. We'll help you recognize the signs of anxiety and share techniques to manage your nerves.


Exams are expensive. Why invest your money to take the ACT and then not prepare for the big day? Our ACT Prep Course is affordable when compared to other options.

Improve Your Score!

You could try it alone, but why take the chance? When it comes down to it, you want to improve your score and maximize your chances of getting into the college of your choice. A higher ACT score can open up more options for your future! Even if your test score is high enough for college admission, a few more points may put you in the running for higher level scholarships. ACT Prep Courses help you improve your performance on one of the most important tests you'll ever take. You're more likely to get admitted into the college of your dreams if your ACT score is above average. Simply, scoring well on the ACT test increases your opportunities to get a quality education offset by scholarships offers.
