ACT Test Prep Materials
ACT has a variety of test materials to help students prepare for the exam.


Accupacer is an untimed, computerized test that helps your prospective college evaluate your skills and place you into appropriate courses. For most courses through Kirkwood Community College, you need to complete the reading and writing exams. You will receive your Accuplacer results immediately after completing the test, and your score report includes messages informing you what courses you should take.
