The Con’s of The Barron’s Act 36 Aiming for the Perfect Score:

• The book is not an instructional book. It does not teach students information on the subjects. Nor does it teach any principles. It is advisable for students to review these techniques prior to starting the applicable section in the book. An example of items students may wish to review are; (math) properties of an isosceles triangle, area, perimeters, regular polygons and reflective properties.

• The Science section cannot be quickly reviewed. The 5-6-7 method requires some work to learn the techniques associated with the section in order to apply the principle. The Barron’s Act book does state this section is not one to lightly skip through and take the practice tests out of order. The Science section must be followed from beginning to end in order to effectively grasp the information.
