This three-hour workshop is a practical hands-on instruction session developed by Chad Cargill. It is designed for students who need a few extra points on their ACT to win scholarships and students who are a few points away from qualifying to get into college. This workshop contains practical information on what will be on the test and how to master the techniques that will help increase your ACT score. The workshop is not a practice test.
