Dr. Beasley complete reconfigured his BEAT the ACT to accommodate students who take both the SAT and ACT, and provides a lot of common ground so preparing for both tests compliments each other.

7 Basic Principles to BEAT the Test that are common to both the SAT and ACT.  Dr. Beasley goes into detail and demonstrates how applying these principles will help you raise your score.

ACT English Section: Dr. Beasley provides a two-part training – first, presenting the Tactics and Techniques common to both the ACT English and the SAT Writing & Language, and second, applying those Tactics and Techniques to the specific ACT questions.  The Tactics and Techniques for the SAT Writing & Language and ACT English are identical and both use the AEIOU Technique.  The difference is the application on each test.  Dr. Beasley shows how to use these Tactics and Techniques specifically on ACT questions. The Techniques and Tactics include:

·       Using the “hearing” part of your brain

·       Using the Process of Elimination

·       How to Mark Answers in the Test Booklet

·       When to Transfer Answers

·       How to use the AEIOU Technique to Answer Individual Questions

·       What to do in a time crunch

ACT Math Section: Again, Dr. Beasley presents a two-part training covering the common Tactics and Techniques for both SAT and ACT using the “CRACK the Math” Technique, then shows you how to apply this to specific ACT questions.  In addition, Dr. Beasley selects specific difficult questions and demonstrates how his Technique makes solving them simpler and easier.  The Techniques and Tactics include:

·       Using Dr. Beasley’s Math Rules to solve individual problems

·       Using the Process of Elimination

·       How to Mark Answers in the Test Booklet

·       When to Transfer Answers

·       What to do in a time crunch

NOTE: The ACT math covers more math than the SAT.  ACT contains Trig, Conics, and Logarithms not found in the SAT, and requires specific additional information to address these.

ACT Reading Section: This is another two-part training with his exclusive Three-Level process to select which questions to answer first and his step-by-step CAKE technique to answer correctly and quickly.  The Techniques and Tactics include:

·       Start with the Questions FIRST

·       Identifying the Three Types of Questions

·       Marking Questions by Type

·       Answering Sequence

·       How to Mark Answers in the Test Booklet

·       When to Transfer Answers

·       How to use the CAKE Technique to Answer Individual Questions

·       What to do in a time crunch

Dr. Beasley takes one of the ACT passages to demonstrate how to use these Tactics and Techniques.

ACT Science Section: This section is unique to the ACT.  Ironically, the Science section does not contain any real science!  There is no Biology, Chemistry, or Physics in the section.  The focus is on the ability to interpret graphs, charts, and observation text.  Although there are lots of graphics, Dr. Beasley treats these more like a Reading Section because the questions are clustered into several passages – like the Reading.  The Techniques and Tactics include:

·       Start with the Questions FIRST

·       Identifying the Types of Questions

·       Marking Questions by Type

·       How to Mark Answers in the Test Booklet

·       When to Transfer Answers

·       How to use the CAKE Technique to Answer Individual Questions

·       What to do in a time crunch

NOTE: The ACT Science has recently slipped in what are called “Outside Knowledge” questions.”  These questions cannot be answered from the passage and require “some” knowledge of science to answer.  However, using Dr. Beasley’s techniques, these can be answered correctly without this “Outside Knowledge.”
