ACT Practice Test When: Saturday, February 07, 2015 10:00 AM Where: Glen Ellyn Public Library
A practice test is crucial to ward off those Test Day jitters and to reveal how you may score on the "real thing". Don't be surprised! Come and experience first- hand what Test Day will be like. Kaplan Test Prep will provide a proctored ACT practice test and will return scores with analyzed results to students individually via email. Parent/guardian contact info is required at check-in on test day. Please bring multiple #2 sharpened pencils, an approved calculator, and a healthy snack. We often have several last-minute cancellations, so members on the wait list are encouraged to arrive 5-10 minutes before the test is scheduled, and will be allowed to fill open spaces according to the order in which they appear on the wait list.
