CLARKSDALE – Knowing how the ACT is structured and its major content areas are the first steps to acing it, and Coahoma Community College is offering students the opportunity to learn this and more during a free ACT workshop Saturday, Sept.3.

Sponsored by CCC’s Division of Enrollment and Student Services’ Career Services and Placement Center, in partnership with the Tri-County Workforce Alliance (TWA), the workshop is open to students of any age preparing for the ACT.

The workshop will run from 8:30 a.m. to Noon in the lecture room of Whiteside Hall and is open to local high school and college students who register.

According to organizer Trina Cox, CCC’s coordinator of career services, the workshop is designed for students who have never taken the test, as well as those who plan to retake the test to increase their score.

 “This is a great opportunity to help students preparing to take the college entrance examinations for the first time, as well as a chance to offer tips and suggestions about re-taking the ACT at no cost to the student,” said Cox.

According to Cox, the workshop will cover all sections of the test—including math/problem solving, science, English and reading comprehension. Those in attendance will also receive practical tips regarding test-taking skills, confidence building, memory association and tips for preparing the day before the test.  

“We’re excited to offer this service to the community and we encourage all those interested to take advantage of this great opportunity,” said Cox. 

Seating for the workshop is limited, so reserve your spot now by sending an email with your full name, school name, and grade level to tcox@coahomacc.edu or tcwaclarksdale@gmail.com .
