# MOBILE GAMES
Seemingly simple and fun, Peterson's mobile games will drill you in the cognitive skills essential for mastering standardized tests.
# STUDY ON THE GO
Review books are heavy and official questions on your phone are useless unless you have scratch paper. We've designed the games in Peterson's ACT Prep Guide so that you can get quality studying done without any books or scratch paper. All you need is your iPhone or iPad and your attention
# TARGET AND DRILL KEY SKILLS
You can improve your jump-shot by playing in basketball games, but isn't it more effective to practice jump-shots on their own? Similarly, you can eventually develop foundational test skills by practicing official questions, but you can achieve score improvement more quickly and effectively by targeting and drilling foundational skills in isolation. The games in Peterson's ACT Prep Guide are designed to drill users on essential, yet commonly overlooked standardized test skills. In our experience tutoring students, honing these skills leads to rapid score improvement.
# SUPPLEMENT YOUR CLASS
You invested a lot of money in prep courses, but do you feel like you’re making the progress you need? Prep courses are useful, but they don't teach everything you need to score well. Peterson's ACT Prep Guide drills you in essential skills in a way that your class won't. You can't afford to rely on your class only – there's too much at stake!
# MAKE EVERY MINUTE COUNT
Peterson's ACT Prep Guide games are potent 1-minute study sessions. So whether it's three minutes in line at your favorite coffee shop, five minutes between class, or fifteen minutes as you wait for your friends to finish getting ready, Peterson's ACT Prep Guide games enable you to sharpen your test skills anywhere, anytime.
# HAVE FUN!
The games included in Peterson's ACT Prep Guide are designed like video games. In fact, they're fun enough that even people not studying find them enjoyable! You've got to study for the test; you might as well do it in a way that's both fun and effective.

Ratings and Reviews
Great skill builder!
This app is a great opportunity to practice in short but concise ways. Great use of your time when doing ACT prep on-the-go!
I took the ACT after I took a prep class and didn't perform how I would have liked. I then started using nerd coach and my score went way up! I can't think of anyone nerd coach wouldn't help. I highly recommend everyone trying to get into college to use this app!
A lot more fun/useful than I expected
