Whether you are a student getting ready to take your college entrance examination or a parent trying to guide your child through the college admissions process, you want to do all you can to ward off test day jitters. We can help! The West Chicago Public Library District will provide a free proctored ACT practice test for students, administered by Kaplan Test Prep, on Saturday, February 16 beginning at 1:00 pm. This test will include return scores with analyzed results.

Colleges and universities have made test scores a major factor in their admissions decisions and merit scholarship awards, yet many students and their parents don't realize the importance of good preparation. Focused ACT test prep and review can make a huge difference in a student's performance on the exam. Studies have shown that, if a student is familiar with the format of the test and has a reasonable idea of what to expect on the exam, their chances of doing well are greatly increased. Students not only gain confidence from knowing the format of the exam but also find reassurance in knowing the details.

Colleges use ACT results in admission decisions, course placement, academic advising and, with aiding agencies, evaluate applications for scholarships, loans and other financial assistance. "We are so pleased to be able to offer the students of the West Chicago Public Library District this opportunity to be successful," says Administrative Librarian Melody E. Coleman.
