Test Prep Database – Mometrix

We have a new database, Mometrix. Practice exams and curriculum review tools for academic, pre-professional and professional subjects. These include K-12 education; high school equivalency; English as a second language; college, graduate school and professional school admissions. Career exams include nursing, teaching, legal, law enforcement, business, trades, public service and more.

In order to access the database, choose your home library from the list, and on the next screen when it asks for your “password” enter your library barcode number (located on the back of your card, beneath the barcode). You can then choose “Practice Tests” from the left-hand menu to view all available tests.
