In the Know: Testing Anytime

If you don’t already know, the GED test is making some major changes to their exam starting in January.  The new test will focus strongly on the four major content areas: literacy, mathematics, science, and social studies in an effort to make takers prepared for college and continuing education.  Here’s the website.  
  Many people are trying to get to the test before the January switch, and so you may have noticed that our GED preperation books and practice tests are off the shelves and building up a wait.  Luckily, we have an amazing test prep & practice services you can access anytime, anywhere.  The extra good news?  It’s not just for the GED.
   Enter the LearningExpress Library, a powerful database available through WCCLS that allows you to take practice tests, complete preperation courses and guides, and work on the skills required to tackle the General Education Development exam.  There’s even a prep program for Spanish speakers. 
  To access LearningExpress, start from the www.WCCLS.org homepage.  If you click on the white tab that says “Online Resources”, you’ll come to a list of our databases arranged by subject.  LeanringExpress Library can be found under “Job Search and Career” on the list at left.

The LearningExpress Library offers far more than GED preperation.  SAT, ACT, CLEP, THEA, ASVAB, TOEFL, GRE and dozens more acronyms have practice tests, preperation materials and more.  It also offers software tutorials, skill training in subjects like math and vocabulary for grade school levels through college and the workplace.  If you’re looking for professional exam help in real estate, nursing, law, or anything else the LearningExpress library must be on your list!  It’s a fantastic resource for test-takers of all ages and careers.  The website does require an email to create an account, but after that it’s simply log in and test away.  

 We’re also offering a free SAT practice test at the library on Saturday, September 14th, 9am-1:30 for highschool students only.  For registration call 1-800-527-8378, #2, #2 or visit the website here.
