Motlow Site here sets ACT Prep courses

Posted on Friday, September 20, 2013 at 2:39 pm

Fayetteville area high school students planning to take the ACT can prepare for the test by enrolling in an ACT preparation class on the Motlow’s Fayetteville Center.

Classes will meet Thursdays, Oct. 3, 10, 17 and 24 from, 6 until 9 p.m. in room 104. The registration deadline is Sept. 27. The course is limited to 25 students.

Registration forms can be obtained online at www.mscc.edu/cpes/extended services.aspx Completed forms can be mailed or faxed to the address indicated on the registration form. 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 931-393-1760 or 1-800-654-4877, ext. 1760.


The ACT prep class focuses on four areas of the ACT: English, mathematics, reading and science. Emphasis will be on the 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 will be taught by Gayle “Mimi” Hughes.


The ACT prep classes are designed to prepare students for the national ACT on Oct. 26, 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. For more information, visit www.ACT.org.
