TODAY'S TIP - LearningExpress Library

Last week’s tip talked about the Live Homework Help database, and how jobseekers could use it to go over their resumes with a tutor, and other useful resources for Adult Learners.

Today we’re featuring another great database called LearningExpress Library. LearningExpress Library is where students and workers of all ages can find practice tests in a wide variety of subjects.

The LearningExpress Library database has college prep tests, including ACT, SAT, TOEFL iBT, CLEP, AP prep tests and nursing school entrance exams. It also has a variety of GED tests, including Spanish language GED. Grad school tests include GMAT, GRE, LSAT and MCAT. There are also Jobs & Careers practice tests for ASVAB, EMT, cosmetology, Nursing, real estate, commercial driver’s license (CDL), etc. Job skills resources include help with writing resumes and cover letters.

Whatever your goal, the resources made available by SFPL through LearningExpress Library and Live Homework Help will help you succeed. These databases have some similar content (if you like taking education related tests, you’re going to want to use them both!), but while Live Homework Help allows you to work one-on-one with a real tutor, LearningExpress Library’s specialty is providing a wide variety of vocational and civil service practice tests.

If you’ve been reading our Tuesday Tips, by now you know how to get to LearningExpress Library. Okay, from the SFPL homepage, click on Articles & Databases, then choose either the Education category or the Student Resources category from the list on the left. Create a user name and password, and you can keep track of the tests you've taken and how you did.
