Title: "I Used to Hate the ACT, too: How to Conquer the #1 College Admissions Test."
The most important part of the title is the word 'ACT' so definitely make that stand out. The subtitle "How to Conquer the #1 College Admissions Test" should be underneath and maybe in small caps?

I have a good idea of what I would like in the image I've uploaded. Please try to stay as close to the idea as possible! It's a test to get into College, so some images I have in my head are college gates at a prestigious university, pencils, a calculator.
I want this to look professional but not be cliche. I want my book to stand out from the masses of other prep books out there. A simple, professional, clean, and inspiring design is what I'm looking for.
Lastly, keep in mind the target audience: High School Sophomores and Juniors and their Parents!
I would like a spine and a back as well that meshes well with the front as a whole.
