Giveaway and Review: ACT and College Preparation Course

Win this book!

   ACT and College Preparation Course for the Christian Student by Dr. James Stobaugh contains 50 lessons covering English, math, reading, science, vocabulary, and essay writing.  Dr. Stobaugh's approach is to start preparations for the test in eleventh grade and follow the course over a period of either 50 weeks, completing one lesson a week, or 50 days, completing one lesson per day.  Along with the book, a downloadable essay workbook is also available which covers the mechanics and style of writing an ACT essay.  The appendix includes sections for vocabulary helps, book list, reading journal, devotional journal, and Greek and Latin morphemes.  (The book list covers literature that would be useful to read beginning in ninth grade for preparation for both the SAT and ACT, as well as college itself.)  Other highlights are the devotional format of the book and the useful test-taking insights and stress-reduction strategies.

   One really great thing about this book is that it is packed full of information, but in a manageable format.  The body of knowledge required for college preparation seems overwhelming, but Dr. Stobaugh has
organized this book so that students can tackle the "elephant" one bite at a time.

   James P. Stobaugh's ACT and College Preparation Course for the Christian Student is one of several resources available from Master Books for high school students and their families.  They also have books like  SAT and College Preparation Course for the Christian Student, Already Compromised, Fish Out of Water, and Coming Soon – History Curriculum for 10th – 12th grade by Dr. James Stobaugh.
