Online Learning

One of the most frequent requests for books that libraries receive are for test tutor books...books that help you prepare to take a test.

Many adults are working of GED (high school equivalency diploma) or ASVAB (entry into the armed services). We have a hard time keeping these books on the shelf.

So, we've subscribed to an online test tutor service called Learning Express. GED and ASVAB are available here as well as many other practice tests for adults such as real estate, nursing, law enforcement, and firefighter.

There are also practice tests for students preparing for SAT or ACT exams for college entrance.

Even elementary school students have practice tests available in reading and math.

You can work at the library or from home. You'll need your library card number to log in from home. If you can't finish the practice in one session you can save your work and come back to it at a later time.

This subscription was funded by a grant to the Cooperative from the State Legislature.
