UW-Eau Claire Continuing Education to Offer
Spring 2008 ACT Prep Course

RELEASED: Nov. 14, 2007

EAU CLAIRE — University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Continuing Education/UW-Extension will offer an ACT Prep Course on the UW-Eau Claire campus in spring 2008. Classes will be held Saturday mornings from Feb. 9 through March 29. There will be no class March 22 during the week of spring break.

The ACT Prep Course will cover the four academic areas measured by the ACT: English, reading, mathematics and scientific reasoning. Some time will also be spent on ACT's optional essay exam. In addition to exercises, skill drills and review of test-taking strategies, students will also take two official ACT practice exams and receive detailed computer analyses of their results. The ACT Prep Course textbook and materials will be provided by Cambridge Educational Services, a respected leader in test preparation.

UW-Eau Claire Continuing Education youth coordinator Libby Thurston believes the program will serve a need in the community for additional, comprehensive college entrance test preparation.

"The ACT Prep Course is meant to compliment shorter programs already offered in the community. It's a cost effective option for students who need a little more review," Thurston said. "While many students opt to prepare on their own, it's helpful for some students to have a more structured environment."

Students can work together on the exercises, and instructors are always on hand to answer questions and offer guidance, Thurston said.

The ACT Prep Course tuition is $145. Some scholarships may be available for students with financial need.
