A strong performance on the ACT can make the difference in your ability to be admitted to your top college choices. Give yourself the edge you need by taking the UW Oshkosh ACT Test Prep course.

Our summer bootcamp is made for students who want a week-long, intensive study experience. The class meets each morning from August 4–8, in addition to the morning test session on July 28.

The ACT examination contains four curriculum-based tests that measure academic achievement in the areas of English, reading, math and science reasoning. By enrolling in the UW Oshkosh ACT prep program, you will strengthen your academic skills and learn test-taking strategies that will prepare you for the ACT.

This program provides:

  • A comprehensive ACT prep textbook
  • Opportunity to take two official retired ACT tests
  • Customized study plan based on strengths and weaknesses identified in the pre-test
  • 12 hours of instruction in four content areas
  • Writing strategies to assist you in the essay part of the ACT exam
  • Test-taking strategies for each of the components and for the entire test
  • Practice with printed materials where test-taking tips can be applied and reinforced
  • Interactive skill drills in deficit areas as measured by the diagnostic test.
