Homework Help Resource Post #6: College Prep
Today we want to talk about college prep – the homework every high school junior and senior dreads. So, how can the library help? The library has some great easy-to-use college prep resources to ease the pressure on you and your student.
This is a great way to get your college search started – simply go to the state your child is interested in attending college and get a list of 4-year colleges as well as 2-year colleges and some trade schools. Click on the university you are interested in and view a description that includes key facts such as demographics, retention rates, entrance requirements and cost per year. This is a great way to find valuable information in one place rather than spending hours searching university websites.
This resource has a variety of college prep resources such as the High School Equivalency Center for students looking to achieve their General Education Diploma (GED), college entrance exam prep tests including ACT, SAT and AP Exam prep and skills review exams in each area of general study. These online tests are an easy way to get practice in if your student finds large preparation books daunting – these online tests can also be used in conjunction with test prep books for further study.
