Test Prep Resources from MHL

Getting ready for college looks a little different in the era of COVID-19! MHL is not currently offering in-person practice ACT and SAT exams, but we can connect you with other resources to get ready for these big tests. 

Of course, we also have books! Here are some of our newest test prep books. Sometimes patrons ask us which is the "best" test prep book. Truthfully, they all cover the same kinds of information. They are just formatted differently, so some students may prefer one format while others prefer another. The library is a great place to check out multiple types of test prep books to discover which one is your personal preference.
