Contrary to popular belief, the ACT Reading Comprehension section is not simply a test of speed but also one of logic. The Complete Guide to ACT Reading combines fundamentals of comprehension with test-taking techniques to give an explanation for how to maximize your score by approaching the test strategically. Includes:
-Extensive strategies for managing time all over the Reading Comprehension section both as a whole and on each passage/question set.
-An in-depth explanation of skimming techniques — learn how to focus on crucial parts of a passage without getting lost in the main points, and to locate key information more swiftly as you work through the questions.
-An overview of common passage topics and themes designed to teach you to “read the test” and identify correct and unsuitable answers more correctly and efficiently.
-A complete chapter devoted to each major question type: literal comprehension, vocabulary-in-context, function/purpose, tone, inference, and point of view.
-Examples from The Real Guide Guide to the ACT, 3rd Ed. demonstrating how to apply the techniques discussed to actual ACT questions.
With passages drawn from the same recent sources and authors used on administered ACT exams, this book provides accurate, rigorous preparation designed to teach you exactly what to anticipate when you sit down to take the real exam — whether your goal is a 25 or a 36.
