Representatives from the Kaplan Test Prep and Admissions will conduct a free practice ACT® test at Fort Bend County Libraries’ University Branch Library, on Saturday, August 10, from 10:15 am to 1:30 pm, in the Small Meeting Room of the library, located at 14010 University Blvd in Sugar Land, on the UH campus.
Students will take a full-length practice SAT test to gain experience and become better prepared for the actual test. The test takes just over 3 hours, including administration instructions and breaks. Actual testing time is 2 hours and 55 minutes. Students are encouraged to bring two #2 pencils and a non-graphing calculator.
Used by U.S. colleges to determine admissions and to award scholarships and grants, the ACT® test assesses high school students’ general educational development and their ability to complete college-level work. The multiple-choice test covers five skill areas: English, mathematics, reading, science, and writing.
The session is free, but seating is limited and reservations are required.

Participants may also register by calling the library at 281-633-5100, or by visiting the library.
