Database of the Week: Learning Express Library

This week's database of the week is Learning Express Library. This database is an online platform of practice tests, exercises, and tutorial courses designed to help students and adults succeed on academic or licensing tests. Learning Express Library has a variety of practice tests, including graduate school entrance exams such as the GRE, LSAT, and MAT. There are also licensure practice tests for fields such as education and law enforcement.

Learning Express Library also offers resources that help with basic academic skills. For example, in the "college students" section, there are resources to improve skills in public speaking, writing and grammar, math, science, and reading comprehension. Additionally, there is a section for improving job search and workplace skills, which includes resources on interviewing, business writing, and creating cover letters and resumes.

Other sections include resources for elementary, middle school, high school students, and adults. These sections are great for brushing up on forgotten knowledge, helping children with homework, or even for creating lesson plans.

To access the resources in Learning Express Library, users must create a free account. In order to create an account, click on the "login" link in the upper right corner of the page. This will lead you to a page to create a new user account. Once you've created an account, you can save tests, courses, and eBooks in an area called "My Center". You will also be able to receive customized score reports with an analysis of your strengths and weaknesses and personalized recommendations of how you can improve your test scores.

The best way to learn about Learning Express Library is to create an account and start looking at resources. This posting just scratched the surface of everything that is available on the database! For more information about what Learning Express Library offers, visit their help page. Next week, we'll look at Newsbank, a database with access to over 1,000 newspapers from around the world.
