In the italicized text below, Meg Arnette, from the library’s Learning Technologies Center, shares her views and a handout on the Learning Express Library database that is available through Rohrbach Library.
NOTE: When you go to the database, you must register as a “new user”, selecting your own username and password. Upon returning to the site, you can use that information as a “retuning user” to follow up and continue using your individual user profile.
On my quest for information about Graduate Schools, I discovered that I had to take certain entrance exams to qualify for all of the programs that interested me. That’s when I stumbled across Learning Express Library via the Rohrbach Library website.
Learning Express Library contains over 300 online practice tests designed to prepare students and adult learners for academic or licensing tests that they must pass in order to succeed in their particular work field.
This database offers great features that help in the test-taking process, including interactive test-preparation and practice, practice exercises, instant scoring and feedback.
The range of tests that are offered is incredible. There are preparatory exams for college, such as the SAT and ACT, as well as the LSAT, GRE and GMAT, which aid in the process of getting into the graduate school of your choice. Other test areas include Praxis exams, Advanced Placement, adult basic skills, law enforcement, military, citizenship, cosmetology and much, much more.
The database also offers a Job & Career Help Center, which helps users choose a career and build a resume, and also gives practical advice for job success. In short, this database is comprehensive, self-paced and a great resource for those who are looking to further their education or career.
