ACT Prep Book 2017-2018: Test Prep Book & Practice Test Questions for the English, Math, Reading, Science, and Writing Sections of the ACT Exam
Developed for test takers trying to achieve passing ACT scores, this comprehensive ACT study guide includes:
•Introduction to the ACT and What is a Good ACT Score
•Detailed Answer Explanations
Each section of the test has a comprehensive review that goes into detail to cover all of the content likely to appear on the ACT test.
The ACT practice test questions are each followed by detailed answer explanations. If you miss a question, it's important that you are able to understand the nature of your mistake and how to avoid making it again on ACT test dates. The answer explanations will help you to learn from your mistakes and overcome them for the highest ACT score.
Understanding the latest test-taking strategies found in this ACT test study guide is essential to preparing you for what you will expect on the exam on the ACT dates. A test taker has to not only understand the material that is being covered on the test, but also must be familiar with the strategies that are necessary to properly utilize the time provided and get through the test without making any avoidable errors.
Anyone planning for ACT sign up and ACT registration should take advantage of the review material, practice test questions, and test-taking strategies contained in this study guide for a better than average ACT score.
How do you study for the ACT?
Start studying early, spend time daily studying the material instead of waiting until the last minute to try to cram. Make sure you are familiar with the subjects that you will be tested over. It is recommended to purchase an ACT test prep study guide book to help you review the material that will be covered on the test. The study guide book will also provide you with practice tests to help you evaluate what you need to spend more time studying.
Is the ACT difficult?
The ACT won't test you over over any material that you haven't been familiar with throughout school. The test is challenging because every section is timed and most require significant amounts of reading to go along with the questions. The test can provide high levels of stress that can make it more difficult because of the impact that it can have on your future. The test does become a little easier with the fact that every question is multiple choice and there is no penalty for incorrect answers. The biggest factor on the test being difficult is how well you prepared yourself for the test.
How long do you need to prepare for the ACT?
The material covered on the ACT should all be familiar to you from school. While that is the case, it is best to start preparing for this test at least two months before you go in for the test. Spend time every day looking over the material instead of waiting until the last minute. The test is divided into four sections that are all timed, so the more prepared you are, the less likely you are to become stressed out during the test.
When should I take the ACT?
While there is no exact time that you have to take this test, most students will try to take the test during the spring semester of their junior year in high school. This is the best time to take the test because all of the material on the ACT is covered at this point. Taking it at this point also allows you to have your scores in hand as you begin to send out college applications. Lastly, it allows you time to retake the test in case you didn't achieve your goal for your score.

|Mathematical Mindsets: Unleashing Students' Potential through Creative Math, Inspiring Messages and Innovative Teaching
Lowest new price: $12.63
Lowest used price: $7.97
List price: $19.95
Author: Jo Boaler
Banish math anxiety and give students of all ages a clear roadmap to success
Mathematical Mindsets provides practical strategies and activities to help teachers and parents show all children, even those who are convinced that they are bad at math, that they can enjoy and succeed in math. Jo Boaler—Stanford researcher, professor of math education, and expert on math learning—has studied why students don't like math and often fail in math classes. She's followed thousands of students through middle and high schools to study how they learn and to find the most effective ways to unleash the math potential in all students.
There is a clear gap between what research has shown to work in teaching math and what happens in schools and at home. This book bridges that gap by turning research findings into practical activities and advice. Boaler translates Carol Dweck's concept of 'mindset' into math teaching and parenting strategies, showing how students can go from self-doubt to strong self-confidence, which is so important to math learning. Boaler reveals the steps that must be taken by schools and parents to improve math education for all. Mathematical Mindsets:
- Explains how the brain processes mathematics learning
- Reveals how to turn mistakes and struggles into valuable learning experiences
- Provides examples of rich mathematical activities to replace rote learning
- Explains ways to give students a positive math mindset
- Gives examples of how assessment and grading policies need to change to support real understanding
Scores of students hate and fear math, so they end up leaving school without an understanding of basic mathematical concepts. Their evasion and departure hinders math-related pathways and STEM career opportunities. Research has shown very clear methods to change this phenomena, but the information has been confined to research journals—until now. Mathematical Mindsets provides a proven, practical roadmap to mathematics success for any student at any age.
|The Book of Why: The New Science of Cause and Effect
Lowest new price: $22.84
Lowest used price: $23.40
List price: $32.00
Author: Judea Pearl
A Turing Prize-winning computer scientist and statistician shows how understanding causality has revolutionized science and will revolutionize artificial intelligence
"Correlation is not causation." This mantra, chanted by scientists for more than a century, has led to a virtual prohibition on causal talk. Today, that taboo is dead. The causal revolution, instigated by Judea Pearl and his colleagues, has cut through a century of confusion and established causality--the study of cause and effect--on a firm scientific basis. His work explains how we can know easy things, like whether it was rain or a sprinkler that made a sidewalk wet; and how to answer hard questions, like whether a drug cured an illness. Pearl's work enables us to know not just whether one thing causes another: it lets us explore the world that is and the worlds that could have been. It shows us the essence of human thought and key to artificial intelligence. Anyone who wants to understand either needs The Book of Why.

|Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid
Lowest new price: $16.01
Lowest used price: $8.95
List price: $24.99
Author: Douglas R. Hofstadter
Brand: Basic Books AZ
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize
A metaphorical fugue on minds and machines in the spirit of Lewis Carroll
Douglas Hofstadter's book is concerned directly with the nature of "maps" or links between formal systems. However, according to Hofstadter, the formal system that underlies all mental activity transcends the system that supports it. If life can grow out of the formal chemical substrate of the cell, if consciousness can emerge out of a formal system of firing neurons, then so too will computers attain human intelligence. Gödel, Escher, Bach is a wonderful exploration of fascinating ideas at the heart of cognitive science: meaning, reduction, recursion, and much more.
Twenty years after it topped the bestseller charts, Douglas R. Hofstadter's Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid is still something of a marvel. Besides being a profound and entertaining meditation on human thought and creativity, this book looks at the surprising points of contact between the music of Bach, the artwork of Escher, and the mathematics of Gödel. It also looks at the prospects for computers and artificial intelligence (AI) for mimicking human thought. For the general reader and the computer techie alike, this book still sets a standard for thinking about the future of computers and their relation to the way we think.
Hofstadter's great achievement in Gödel, Escher, Bach was making abstruse mathematical topics (like undecidability, recursion, and 'strange loops') accessible and remarkably entertaining. Borrowing a page from Lewis Carroll (who might well have been a fan of this book), each chapter presents dialogue between the Tortoise and Achilles, as well as other characters who dramatize concepts discussed later in more detail. Allusions to Bach's music (centering on his Musical Offering) and Escher's continually paradoxical artwork are plentiful here. This more approachable material lets the author delve into serious number theory (concentrating on the ramifications of Gödel's Theorem of Incompleteness) while stopping along the way to ponder the work of a host of other mathematicians, artists, and thinkers.
The world has moved on since 1979, of course. The book predicted that computers probably won't ever beat humans in chess, though Deep Blue beat Garry Kasparov in 1997. And the vinyl record, which serves for some of Hofstadter's best analogies, is now left to collectors. Sections on recursion and the graphs of certain functions from physics look tantalizing, like the fractals of recent chaos theory. And AI has moved on, of course, with mixed results. Yet Gödel, Escher, Bach remains a remarkable achievement. Its intellectual range and ability to let us visualize difficult mathematical concepts help make it one of this century's best for anyone who's interested in computers and their potential for real intelligence. --Richard Dragan
Topics Covered: J.S. Bach, M.C. Escher, Kurt Gödel: biographical information and work, artificial intelligence (AI) history and theories, strange loops and tangled hierarchies, formal and informal systems, number theory, form in mathematics, figure and ground, consistency, completeness, Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry, recursive structures, theories of meaning, propositional calculus, typographical number theory, Zen and mathematics, levels of description and computers; theory of mind: neurons, minds and thoughts; undecidability; self-reference and self-representation; Turing test for machine intelligence.
