Cliff's Test Prep ACT 

So I pop over to Border's to take a look at some ACT test prep books to pick up some ACT-style questions for Friday's test. Some of the books, like Kaplan's didn't have any appropriate questions, but the Cliff's did. And they were all much harder than my students are prepared for. Now I'm wondering whether the real ACT geometry questions are at this level, and if they are, whether we're short-changing the students in our teaching of them. I think that buying a copy of the Cliff's book might be well worthwhile to incorporate this sort of material into future lessons.
