UF Test Preparation Resources
UF Library Resources
Online Testing & Education Reference Center
The Testing & Education Reference Center is a comprehensive resource offered through the UF libraries. It offers e-prep courses, strategies and tips, and sample practice tests for the GRE, GMAT, LSAT, MCAT, FCAT, and the SAT and ACT, among others.
The Smathers Libraries at UF provide a variety of printed test preparation materials, typically in the form of guides or workbooks from commercial test preparation companies. To find materials for your test, just search for the test name in the library catalog.
Note: You should be judicious in choosing test preparation materials. The UF Libraries ceased acquiring new print test preparation materials when the Testing & Education Reference Center was purchased (above) and so you should make sure that any print materials you wish to use are still up to date, wherever they are obtained from. You can verify this by checking the test administrator's web site.
