Test Taking Tips
Whether you're a high school or college student, tests are unavoidable. If you take a multiple-choice exam your strategy will be different than if you were to take an essay test. Learning proper note taking, studying and test taking strategies are a vital part of improving your grade on exams as well as your academic success.

Veritas Prep Test Prep
Unprepared students cringe at the thought of having to take a test. In fact, the majority of students end up cramming their study time the night before taking the test, if they prepare at all. Properly prepared students realize that a little time and dedication will reward them with lesser stress, higher grades, and great financial rewards for persistent excellence.
TRAILS is a knowledge assessment with multiple-choice questions targeting a variety of information literacy skills based on 3rd, 6th, 9th, and 12th grade standards. This Web-based system was developed to provide an easily accessible and flexible tool for school librarians and teachers to identify strengths and weaknesses in the information-seeking skills of their students. There is no charge for using TRAILS.
