Database of the Week - Learning Express Library

This database is part of the NC Live Consortium of databases, which are accessible throughout North Carolina school, public, special and academic libraries. The “Learning Express Library is a comprehensive, interactive online learning platform of practice tests and tutorial course series designed to help patrons—students and adult learners—succeed on the academic or licensing tests they must pass. You'll get immediate scoring, complete answer explanations, and an individualized analysis of your results.” This database of materials is helpful because it offers a wide variety of titles that are often in reference collections and can not be checked out. If you need to brush up on your math, reading and writing skills, this database offers a wide choice of materials from 4th grade to college. Popular titles, such as the SAT, ACT, ASVAB, and GREare included in its content. A person can login, create their own account, and choose a product (course, tutorial, or practice test) that they want to work on. If you are not finished, you can logout and still have that product available to you when you log back in. For Fayetteville State University (FSU) patrons, when you create your username, use your FSU email account name (i.e. By using your email account, you have let the database know you are affiliated with FSU.

The courses and tests offered cover a wide range of topics. Click on the following categories and you will be able to access the titles and topics available:
