The Learning Express Library 3.0 offers a wide variety of test prep and tutorials.
Test taking can be stressful, and these days test scores mean a lot. Practicing the exam ahead of time, under similar conditions (timed, on a computer) is a good way to prepare.
Learning Express Library is an online practice test and tutorial center. There are online courses and e-books to help students prepare for, and succeed on, standardized tests. The practice tests are scored instantly and will highlight what needs to be worked on next. The Learning Express Library can also help students prepare for core subject tests in the classroom, provide extra help with assignments, and boost their skills in many subjects.
