ACT Prep Black Book

The Black Book works best when used with the authentic ACT questions in the "Red Book," which is the Real ACT Prep Guide, 3rd Edition, by ACT, Inc. The Black Book shows you how to beat the ACT, while the Red Book gives you real ACT questions to practice with. (The ACT Prep Black Book has no affiliation with ACT, Inc.)

The Black Book and the Red Book are all you need to get your best possible ACT score.

Why is the Black Book the ideal ACT book?

  1. It actually works, for one thing. You'll learn to use the ACT’s own design flaws against it.
  2. The Black Book is a clear, concise roadmap to the ACT. (See the partial table of contents below). It explains exactly how every ACT question works, and how to beat it in the least time possible.
  3. The Black Book contains over 200 original solutions for real ACT questions from the Red Book, so you know it actually works. (You'll need the 3rd edition of the Red Book to use these solutions. But you shouldn’t always trust the Red Book’s own explanations of its questions, believe it or not! As Mike demonstrates repeatedly, the Red Book’s explanations frequently rely on faulty and inconsistent reasoning. Mike shows you what’s really going with the ACT in a way that the Red Book does not.)
