Take ACT Test For Free
Young adults are invited to take a practice test for the ACT exam at the Studio City Branch of the Los Angeles Public Library. This opportunity is presented by the Library Foundation of Los Angeles as a chance to prepare for taking the actual test, which is given before one applies for college admission. To register, you may call the Young Adult Librarian at (818) 755-7873 or stop at the Reference Desk and sign up in person. If you are going to take this exam, it is a good idea to invite a friend to take it, too. Years from now you will both remember this day as one that helped you to prepare for entrance into an important phase of your life — attendance at college.
The practice test will be given under the auspices of the Princeton Review test preparation staff.
