WHAT's NEW

NEW FREE SAT/ACT TEST PREP

Montgomery County Public Libraries Launches

Method Test Prep

Diagnostic evaluations, lessons, quizzes, and full-length exams help students navigate the SAT and ACT by focusing on both content and test-taking techniques. Each lesson is less than five minutes and contains examples. After the lesson there is a short quiz so students can practice the strategies they have learned. All quizzes contain immediate feedback including a video audio and written explanations.

SAT and ACT Program Highlights

  • Diagnostic evaluations that establish baseline scores and set goals;
  • Weekly checklists that move students through each section of the test;
  • Quizzes after each lesson, with instant feedback––like having a tutor on your computer;
  • Thousands of questions in the test database;
  • Timed full-length exams to simulate the real test;
  • Resource materials, like quick prep guides and formula sheets;
  • Robust reporting on quiz and test results that highlight students’ strengths and weaknesses;
  • A vocabulary builder to improve students’ expertise; and

MCPL cardholders have unlimited free access to Method Test Prep on the MCPL website.
