Area high school students planning to take the ACT can prepare for the test by enrolling in an ACT preparation class at one of three Motlow College sites. The class will be offered on the Moore County campus and at the Fayetteville and McMinnville centers.
Registration forms can be obtained online at <http://www.mscc.edu/cpes/extended_services.aspx>. Separate forms are available for each testing location.
Completed forms can be mailed or faxed to the address indicated on the registration form. However, registration is not complete until payment has been received. The cost is $60, plus $30.95 for a textbook, with each to be paid separately.
Registrants should write a check for the registration fee to Motlow College. For a textbook, checks should be written to the Motlow College Bookstore. Textbooks will be available only on the first night of class. Those wishing to purchase a book with cash are asked to have the exact amount.
For more information, call Motlow’s Office of Extended Services at (931) 393-1760 or (800) 654-4877, ext. 1760.
The ACT prep class focuses on four areas of the ACT: English, mathematics, reading and science.
Emphasis will be on test-taking skills, logical analysis and pacing oneself. Practice tests in each of the four areas will be administered during and at the conclusion of each course. Classes are scheduled as follows:
—Moore County Campus: Classes, taught by Sheila Gann, will meet from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Feb. 18 and 25, and March 4, 11 and 18. The registration deadline is 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 13. The course is limited to 35 students.
—Fayetteville Center: Classes will meet from 6 to 9 p.m. on March 21 and 28, and April 4 and 11. Students must register by 4:30 p.m. on March 12. The course will be taught by Gayle Hughes and is limited to 25 students.
—McMinnville Center: Classes will meet from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Feb. 19 and 26, and March 5, 12 and 19, with Sheila Gann as instructor. Students must register for the course, which is limited to 30 students, by noon on Feb. 14.
The ACT prep classes are designed to prepare students for the national ACT on April 13, but taking the prep class does NOT register a student to sit for the actual ACT. Students must register separately with ACT to take the national exam; the registration deadline is March 8. For more Information, go online to <www.ACT.org>.
