About the Author

Bob Miller — Author, Teacher, and Renowned Mathematician
 
Bob Miller received his B.S. in the Unified Honors Program sponsored by the Ford Foundation and his M.S. in math from Polytechnic University. After the first class he taught (as a substitute for a full-time professor), he overheard one student say to another, “At least we have someone who can teach the stuff.” From that moment on, he was hooked on teaching.
 
Since then, Bob has taught at virtually every educational level, and has brought his math skills to classrooms at C.U.N.Y., Westfield State College, Rutgers, and Poly. Bob says, “I always feel great when students tell me they used to hate math or couldn’t do math and now they like it more and can do it better.”
 
Bob considers teaching to be exceptionally rewarding, and he has broadened his teaching horizons to include math students beyond the classroom. His math test preps are specifically written in a fun and easy-to-follow style that students embrace.
 
Bob says his goal as an author, teacher, and mathematician is to help students understand math so they can get the scores they need to excel on the ACT exam. With his numerous success stories, best-selling test preps, and over 30 years of experience, Bob has proven that his teaching methods get results!
 
 

Read an Excerpt

Congratulations!!!! 
 
You are about to enter the second part of your education, and for you, the ACT is the first step toward college.
 
I’ve written this book as if you were in front of me and I was teaching you personally. I teach some of the areas in greater detail than others because I have found many students have problems with these topics. They include factoring, algebraic fractions, trig, and, yes, percentage problems. Chapter 17 presents four sample practice tests so you know you’ll have improved your skills.
 
If you want any topics explained more fully than this book presents, you might want to check one of my other books. If you want any questions explained or something added to the book, please send your question to REA along with your e-mail address, and I’ll respond to you. E-mail: info@rea.com 
 
Now, enjoy the book and learn!!
 
Bob
