Spotlight Database: Testing & Education Reference Center

Our current database spotlight is on the Testing & Education Reference Center. This database can be an invaluable tool for prospective college students and job seekers. Features include a resume builder with cover letter samples and tips, as well as assistance in identifying scholarships, colleges, graduate schools, and specialty programs and careers. From the description:

Testing & Education Reference Center helps prepare students for specialized tests for college, graduate school, the military or trade school. It includes preparatory tests from the GED (General Educational Development) to the GRE (Graduate Record Examination General Test). Testing & Education Reference Center provides a variety of search options to help you find all the information you need on private high schools, distance education, two-year programs, undergraduate and graduate programs and executive education programs. The database can also assist you in writing admission's applications essays or resumes, and has preparatory examinations including entrance exams and certification and licensing tests.

The North Campus Library offers over 100 databases for student use. These can be accessed from any Internet computer, even off-campus. They provide users with articles, biographies, literature criticism, and much more on many academic subjects. All you need is your student ID number; the PIN is the last four digits of that number. When in the library, ask the reference librarian how to use the databases, or call the reference desk at 305-237-1183 for assistance.
