College-bound high school students typically feel a sense of dread when they think about taking the ACT. A student’s ACT score affects everything from college acceptance to scholarship opportunities. For this reason, the ACT has become a dreaded, four-hour marathon in which students feel tremendous pressure to do well. Unfortunately, many will find that their scores don’t accurately reflect their capabilities.
After years of study and experimentation, Moshe Ohayon of Louisville, KY, founded Bad Test Takers, a test prep company designed to help frustrated students boost their standardized test scores. Most students, despite being intelligent and knowledgeable in core subject areas, enter the ACT surprisingly unprepared. With Ohayon’s proven techniques and logical attack strategies, students achieve significantly higher scores by learning how to minimize mistakes and how to think strategically about the ACT and its structure.
Ohayon and the Bad Test Takers team of highly knowledgeable instructors make it their mission to study and analyze every minute detail about the ACT. In fact, every instructor routinely retakes the ACT to test and retest Bad Test Takers strategies. Students learn from the experts about how to take the test in a smarter way, using a revolutionary, seemingly counter-intuitive approach. Students often fail to realize that many of the test-taking habits they use on high school exams are ineffective when it comes to the ACT. Replacing these habits with a tactical ACT-specific approach is the key to a significantly higher score.
Such an approach is the key to the success of Bad Test Takers, which offers one-on-one tutoring and online ACT courses but also recently published what has become a wildly popular strategy guide entitled The ACT for Bad Test Takers. Bad Test Takers also offers professional development and consulting services to schools and educators, guiding them on how to best equip students for success on the ACT.
