ACT Test taking Strategies Workshop

ACT Test taking Strategies Workshop

Are you taking the ACT on October 27, 2012?  If so, it’s not too late to sign up for the ACT Test taking strategies workshop offered through Columbia Area Career Center’s Professional and Community Education Division. The classes are offered on three consecutive Saturdays prior to the 27th from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm. The cost is $109.00 and is taught by the owner of The Total Learning Center, John Houmes, M.Ed. The workshop is designed for students 9th grade and older as they prepare to do their best on the ACT and is designed to help reduce the stress of the ACT in several ways: by increasing student understanding of the test, by reviewing English and math concepts, and by teaching effective test taking strategies for all sections of the test. The greatest benefit is achieved by completing the practice test in the Preparing for the ACT assessment 2012-2013 booklet. Students can register online  at or at the Professional and Community Education office in room number 147 of the Career Center, prior to the date of the first class on October 6.
Additional workshops are offered prior to the ACT test dates in December, February, April, and June. Call 573-214-3803 for more details.
