ZAPS test-preparation seminars are carefully designed to help each student do his or her personal best on the ACT. Students who complete the ZAPS seminar and practice these tips and strategies at home, typically raise their ACT scores by 2 to 4 points. In the five-hour ZAPS seminar, students will learn strategies for improving in all four subtests, take shortened practice tests that mirror the actual testing experience, and get suggestions for individualized study leading up to the ACT test during the spring for any junior who wishes to take it. Attendees receive a comprehensive study guide and 24 practice test workouts with detailed answer explanations. Students should bring a calculator and two pencils to the seminar.
