Which ACT test prep book(s) should I buy for my niece?

She is currently working with a test prep tutor to help her with the SAT. He recommended Gruber's Complete SAT Guide for the SAT, but Gruber's ACT guide has some poor reviews on Amazon.

The skills she gains from her SAT prep will be 80% helpful for the ACT.

But she should familiarize herself with the differences (mostly science section) and any book will do.

"Real ACT" is quite helpful, as is Dissecting the ACT 2.0.

The SAT and ACT are actually pretty different, especially the English sections. I've taught a number of students out ofthis book with some pretty good results.

I ended up getting her a copy of Crash Course for the ACT. Thanks for your feedback!
