UW-River Falls to offer summer ACT test preparation classes

April 10, 2017--The University of Wisconsin-River Falls will offer test preparation classes in June and July for high school students planning to take the ACT, a popular admissions test measuring academic readiness for college. Students may attend one of two, four-day sessions, beginning June 19 on the River Falls campus or July 17 at the UWRF Hudson Center in Hudson.

"Students will receive an in-depth review of the exam materials, insight into strategies for succeeding on standardized tests and a comprehensive study plan," said Randy Zimmermann, director of UWRF Outreach and Continuing Education. Class sessions use real test questions to show just how these skills are tested, he added.

The UWRF ACT Summer Institute consists of 20 hours of classroom instruction covered in an intensive four-day format. Students receive instruction from an ACT test preparation expert and access to extensive online review tools. Lessons include test-taking strategies, question formats, and the ACT test components for math, English, reading comprehension, and science reasoning.

The course fee of $449 includes all classroom and online sessions and course materials. Students also receive access to online review sessions and open office hours in the time leading up to fall exam dates.
