ACT Introduction

The ACT is a skills based test covering the following four sections:
  • English
  • Reading
  • Math
  • Science

The test is scored from 1-36. Typically, if a student’s strength is math and science, the ACT is a better test than the SAT for that student. On the ACT, there are more math concepts and higher level math concepts than on the SAT. The wild card on the ACT is the Science Section. It’s the most difficult section for many students and it requires students to analyze unfamiliar data, charts, and graphs. In the Science Section, students can expect to see anything from botany to genetics. Pretty much anything is fair game. However, students are not expected to have background knowledge in any of these topics.


Thank YOU Dave for offering such a great program to our students. I will absolutely recommend you to everyone I talk to!

Thank you for your excellent test preparation course. It was extremely useful in preparing our daughter for her PSAT and SAT test this past fall. She scored a 219 on her PSAT and 2160 on her SAT.

DB Academics is an outstanding tutorial service. My son could not be happier with his experience with D.B. Academics. He raised his scores by 400 points, giving him a great deal of confidence when applying to colleges.

Thank you so much for your guidance and unbound knowledge of SAT test taking strategy. I scored a 2260 on my October 2010 SAT. Thank you again. I could not have done it without you.

DB Academics provides SAT preparation classes at Peninsula as a fund-raising venture for the PTSA. We receive consistent positive feedback from both parents and students. We are able to provide this resource to our students at a very reasonable cost.

When I was in the fifth grade I was in accelerated pre-algebra. Dave Berger set up a strong foundation for the years ahead. I still apply his methods to my math.

Thank you, Dave Berger. Your expert tutoring of our son enabled him to score an 800 on the Math Level II exam. Your in-depth tutoring was very well paced and kept stress to a minimum. We really appreciate your work with our son.

Thank you so much for everything you have done for me. I can’t tell you enough how much I appreciate your hard work. Honestly, this has been the best SAT prep ever! I will most definitely recommend DB Academics to most of the underclassmen at my school.

DB Academics was highly recommended by other parents. We began working with them and my daughter’s grades in math improved quickly and dramatically. I found them to be very good at building rapport with the students and identifying their strengths and weaknesses.

You are such a class act! I was going to send you a similar email, but you beat me to it! You are wonderful to work with and passionate about helping the kids. We so appreciate you. It was so easy to find a replacement for myself because you are so easy to work with. Michelle will do a great job.

PTSA rep. at Dana Hills High.
