Prepare for the SAT
First, we have a ton of SAT prep books in our collection. You can come check them out any time-- we'll help you find them if you're not sure where they are.
Can't get to the library? No prob. We also have some online resources to guide you on your SAT way.
Two great resources to check out are Learning Express Library and Tutor.com. (Both can be found under their alphabetical listing here.)
Learning Express Library's College Prep Center offers prep ebooks, practice tests, and tutorials on how to prepare appropriately for the test.
At Tutor.com, you'll find online tutors who can answer questions right away! There are also several practice tests you can take offered by the Princeton Review-- once you submit yours, you'll get your score instantly, and Tutor.com will keep track of it for you. Their Resources page has more information than you'd ever want to know about the Common App, test taking strategies, financial aid, choosing the best college for you, and more. Just have your library card handy to access this resource, and you'll be college ready in no time.
