Testing Resources

There have been some question recently, so I just want to make sure everyone is on the same page with regards to the resources we have to help people who are taking standardized tests.

1) Testing & Education Reference Center (TERC) solves the problem of everyone needing guides and practice tests at the same time by providing e-versions. Be aware though that each individual needs to create a personal account to actually click into the guide and practice tests. There is a practical reason for this. The practice tests are timed just as the real tests are timed. An individual account lets a person stop in the middle and then pick it up later where they left off. Most of our electronic resources allow individuals to create accounts, but for TERC it is pretty much necessary if they want to use it properly.

2) In the Career Collection we are removing print guides to the old GRE test and replacing them with guides for the new GRE. If a student cannot get a hold of one, please guide them to TERC

. It has the e-book version of Peterson’s Master the GRE 2011.
