LearningExpress Library offers free, unlimited, 24/7 access to a series of skill-building, interactive courses in math, reading, and writing. Some courses are available with Spanish instructions. Also available are hundreds of online interactive practice tests including grade school achievement tests, the SAT, GED, U.S. Citizenship, and civil service positions.
Complete answer explanations accompany each response so that users understand why a particular answer is correct or incorrect. All practice tests include instant diagnostic score reports that help users to target those skill areas that need the most attention. To help students master the SAT and recently added essay, instant score reports provide immediate feedback on how well they performed in each of five writing skill areas.
