This is the book we did all of our lessons from. It has notes, examples, problems and answers:
Business Math & Financial Literacy
- At the end of the day, nothing will prepare you better for the ACT than actually answering some practice tests under conditions that mimic those at the actual test. This is exactly what you will find at The Princeton Review. After you have completed the test, you will also get a comprehensive score report that gives you details of how you performed. You will be able to see which sections you scored well in and which ones you scored poorly. Going through this report will help you understand what you need to focus on to improve your overall score.
- Think you are as prepared as you can be for the ACT? Go to McGraw-Hill Practice Plus website. Answer their practice tests to determine if you really are as ready as you think.
- At this site, you will find 4 practice tests that are laid out in the same format as the real test. Answering all 4 practice tests will help you get more familiar with the structure and format of the test. It will also help you get a real picture of how ready you are for the real exam.
- The Prep Factory is another highly valuable resource that has top-notch content that is very helpful. It requires you to sign up with your email ID to access the available content. But, the website is essentially free.
- The information is neatly sorted into separate categories, which makes it easy to sift through and access relevant information. Overviews are offered for math, reading, science, and English with videos, notes and short quizzes to make sure that all aspects are covered and the matter has been learned adequately.
- Sophia.org has a study guide zone that provides you with invaluable tools for your ACT preparation like flashcards, study guides and practice exams to help boost your scores. There are several tips and tutorials for the essay portions as well, apart from time management, handling anxiety before your exam and other issues you might face during preparation.
- They also provide exercises that promote skill-building in basic grammar, comprehension and reading for the English portion and Geometry and Algebra I exercises for Math
