Preparing for the Big Tests

Familiarity and Success: Over the Summer and in to the Fall
If you're a high school student interested in maximizing your performance on a standardized test -- especially given so many for-fee or free options available -- consider adding ePrep to your overall test preparation toolkit.

What's ePrep?
ePrep is test-prep service offered by the library, free to library card holders. The service offers training programs for the SAT, ACT, PSAT, PLAN, and middle and upper level SSAT exams.

How Does ePrep Work?
Try interactive lessons accompanied by videos in which experts explain the best secrets and approach to choosing the right answer to common test questions. ePrep doesn’t tell you which bubble to fill in with your trusty number 2; it explains why a certain answer is correct and helps you learn from your mistakes. You’ll also use practice tests and quizzes under timed conditions to make sure you’re on the right track.

We'll here add a video explanation of how ePrep works.

How Do I Sign Up to Use ePrep?
First up, you'll need an East Hampton Public Library card. Stop by the library to obtain a new card or renew your oldie. With card in hand, you may use the ePrep service 24-7, on your time, and at your own pace. Click here to sign up for the service and explore the bubbles over the summer and in to the fall...
