Test Prep at the Library

Test Prep at the Library from Lawrence W. Tyree Library on Vimeo.

This video tutorial will demonstrate how to use several library resources to prepare for standardized tests such as the SAT, GRE, or GED.

The library has a variety of resources to help you study for a standardized test. One of the best resources is Testing and Education Reference Center. To access this resource, go to the library’s website, and click the Databases link.

Testing & Education Reference Center is the last database listed on the Library’s Recommended Databases listings on the left. You may need to scroll down to see it. This database provides preparation and practice tests for many standardized tests. To access this database, click its title.

To log in, your Borrower ID is your 8-digit Santa Fe ID number without the hyphen. Your PIN is the last 4 digits of your 8-digit SF ID number.

Tests are organized in the top navigation bar. The GRE is located under the High School category. The ACT and SAT are available under College Prep. Law enforcement, medical exams such as the NCLEX, and the ASVAB are located under Career. The GRE, GMAT, LSAT, and MCAT are located under Grad School. Finally, the TOEFL and U.S. Citizenship tests can be located under the International category.

Most exams will have three online practice tests and one or more online books.

To access these resources, you will need to create a free account. This allows you to keep track of your progress and scores.

The library also has other resources including books that are available to check out. For help finding these resources, access a specialized guide by clicking Guides at the top of the library website, For Everyone, and then Standardized Test Preparation Resources.

This concludes the video tutorial on preparing for standardized tests. If you still have questions, please contact a librarian:
