Cargill, the founder and president of Cargill Consulting, developed his ACT prep program through his own real life experience. He took the ACT test 18 times while he was in high school. In the process, he developed his own test-taking strategies, problem solving methods, and practical common sense techniques that helped increase his score from a 19 to a 32.
