Not only are we offering a freeSAT review, we have tons of great study materials at the Library as well. In addition to a wide selection of test prep books, educational DVDs, and tons of great vocabulary building books like the Kaplan SAT Score-Raising Classics series, we also have free online database resources that you can access from home with your library card. For example, the Learning Express Library database has content and practice tests for several exams, such as the SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, MCAT, AP exams, PRAXIS, and other career exams. It also contains knowledge building in areas like Social Studies, Science, Math and English.

For some of the databases, you will need your library card to use as a username and create an account.
