LearningExpress Library offers students and adults unlimited, 24/7 access to targeted skill–building interactive courses in math, reading, writing, software applications such as Microsoft office, and Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, as well as hundreds of online interactive practice tests that prepare them for several types of exams including grade school achievement tests, the SAT, GED, U.S. Citizenship, nursing, fire fighter, plumbing, civil service positions, and more. Complete answer explanations accompany each response so that patrons understand why a particular answer is correct or incorrect.
