200 Challenging ACT Math Problems
You can get a pretty good ACT Math score by getting most of the test questions correct. But if you want to get an exceptional score, one that sets you apart from the other very good math students who are also taking the test, you need to master the difficult math concepts that appear at the end of the test.
This book can help you do that! Inside, you’ll find 200 problems designed to mimic the problems that appear in the final quarter of the ACT Math test. You’ll work on problems that cover easier concepts, like average, that are asked in clever ways that make the problem more difficult. You’ll also work on the more advanced topics that students are taught in a Pre-Calculus or Trigonometry class.
Along with the problems, you’ll also get fully worked-out solutions.
The paperback version is available for $19.95 on Amazon. The Kindle edition can be purchased for use on your Kindle or tablet for $5.99. To preview the book or make a purchase, just click on the book cover above.
ACT Math Diagnostic Tests
Perhaps you’re trying to decide which test you’re going to take. Will it be the ACT or the SAT? This book will give you an idea of the kinds of problems you’re likely to encounter on test day. The math of the ACT includes topics you learned in middle school, like averages and proportions. You’ll also see problems from Algebra and Geometry as well as the functions you learned about in Algebra 2. Finally, each test contains a few problems from Trigonometry.
If you’ve already decided that the ACT is the test for you, this book will help you pinpoint your strengths and weaknesses. Each of the six tests in the book contains twenty problems. By the time you finish the diagnostic tests, you’ll have done 120 problems, the equivalent of two full ACT Math tests. You’ll have done this without using up any of the tests in The Real ACT Prep Guide.
The paperback version is available for $12.95 on Amazon. In addition, the Kindle version can be downloaded for $4.99. To preview the book or make a purchase, just click on the book cover above.
Advanced Trigonometry: Math for the ACT
This book is the first of a series covering the math concepts tested on the ACT. Our first volume focuses on “Advanced Trigonometry.” You’ll find explanations of the topics,example problems and fully done-out solutions. In the second half of the book, there are a number of problems that you can work out on your own. These, too, have fully worked-out solutions so you can check your work and really understand how to apply what you’ve learned to those tough problems that appear at the end of the ACT Math section.
The topics addressed in this book include the Law of Cosines and the Law of Sines, advanced topics in right triangle trigonometry, the three reciprocal trig functions (secant, cosecant and cotangent) and properties of functions.
Students who are taking the ACT before finishing Pre-Calculus will find this volume particularly helpful. It will cover those topics you might not have gotten to in school yet. (But even if you’ve made it through Pre-Calculus, a little extra practice never hurts, right?!?)
The book is available in paperback for $7.95. It can also be downloaded to your Kindle for only $2.99 and can be read on your iPad or other tablet using the Kindle Reading app. To preview the book or make a purchase, just click on the book cover above.
