Has anyone gotten this guide? Does it at least live partly up to how it is advertised?

    For the ACT, I would personally recommend a combination approach of The Real ACT Prep Book and Barron's for intensive subject review. Also, LazyStudent's Way hasn't been updated for the new ACT...

    Shahein, the ACT hasn't changed except for the addition of the writing. Is the lazy students way good for the sections other than writing?

    Does anyone know how good the Lazy Students Way guide is?

    I don't want to spend money before I know if it's worth it. Does anyone have this Lazy Student's Way ACT guide? What do you think of it?

    It isnt really worth having, It tells you common sense advice and isnt really worth the money, one of their advice was "time isnt on your side"
    well duh it doesnt really take a genius to figure that out.

    and their step by step process was laughable, it goes like ... read the passage .. answer the question..

    nothing profound

    if you have the grammatrix SAT guide you can just use those advices for the reading section, for grammar use common sence, and for math remember that its not like the SAT their not trying to trick you , thus you just have to be fast and not make careless errors. finally for science just look at the diagrams and interpret them to anser the question.. you dont need a guide to tell u that
