Written by a top tutor whose students regularly achieve ACT English scores in the mid-30s, The Complete Guide to ACT English is the only book that offers a comprehensive review of all ACT grammar and rhetoric topics. Includes step-by-step explanations of errors in all their forms; dozens of ACT-style exercises that help you move from understanding rules to applying them in context; and cumulative reviews that allow you to practice a progressively wider range of concepts in a passage. Also includes a complete index of English questions from The Real Guide to the ACT, grouped both by topic and by test. Errata for books purchased prior to 8/25/14: p. 35 incorrectly states that when "however" or "therefore" is used to begin a clause, it should only follow a semicolon and not a period. The ACT is actually somewhat inconsistent with this rule: grammar questions that ask test-takers to join two complete sentences will provide only "semicolon + however/therefore" as a correct answer choice. The construction "period + However/Therefore" will not appear as an answer choice. In contrast, on (rhetoric) questions that test meaning rather than grammar, the ACT considers the construction "period + However/Therefore" acceptable. For example, consider the following: The first tomatoes, grown in South America as early as 500 B.C., were small and golden. Therefore, the tomatoes grown today are large and red. A. NO CHANGE B. However, C. Meanwhile D. Likewise, Choice (B) is correct because it is the only option that indicates a contrast between the two sentences. The fact that "however" is preceded by a period rather than a semicolon would not be considered problematic.

Why every ACT question can only have one valid answer, no matter how much it might seem otherwise sometimes... How to look at ACT questions the same way ACT, Inc. does when it writes them... Why it's so important to work with real test questions from ACT, Inc....and why you shouldn't pay much attention to the official written explanations for those questions... What you're actually supposed to do when the ACT asks you about an author's attitude... The important implications of viewing time as an investment on test day... Why focusing on the wrong answers can be just as important as finding the right one...and how to do it effectively... The simple formula that allows you to crank out a top-scoring essay (that is, if you even need to take the ACT Writing test in the first place)... The special grammatical rules tested on the ACT English section-which may differ from what's commonly accepted in a high school or college classroom... The unwritten rules for every kind of ACT question... The many ways to approach an ACT Math question, and which ones are likely to work best for you... Why every real ACT Math question can potentially be answered in under 30 seconds... And much, much more than we can fit in this space...
