Students considering graduate school are often required to take entrance exams, such as the GRE, LSAT, MCAT or GMAT. Practice tests for many of these exams (except the GRE – see below) are freely available through the library’s Testing and Education Reference Center (TERC). TERC also includes a database of U.S. graduate school programs searchable by major, location, and other criteria, as well as databases of private scholarships available for undergraduate and graduate study.
Users accessing these practice tests will need to create a free, personal account in TERC. TERC is available online 24-7 to UNK students on- and off-campus, and is listed under the “T”s, as well as “Careers and Test Prep,” from the library’s “Articles & E-Resources” webpage.
Additional test-prep and career resources are accessible online by searching the library catalog, including these titles:
- Career Information Center (e-book series)
- CliffsNotes PRAXIS I
- How to find a job on Linkedin, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and other social networks
- McGraw-Hill’s LSAT 2011
- 101 best ways to land a job in troubled times
- 150 Best Jobs for a Better World
- 200 Best Jobs for Introverts
- O*NET OnLine (formerly the Dictionary of Occupational Titles)
- Occupational Outlook Handbook
- Top 300 Careers : Your Complete Guidebook to Major Jobs in Every Field
**GRE Test Takers: As of August 1, 2011 — a GRE Revised General Test has been issued, which is structured and scored quite differently from the GRE of years past. The Testing and Education Reference Center database has not yet been updated to reflect these changes, so please do not use TERC to prepare for the revised GRE! As of September 30, 2011, TERC now features test-prep materials for the GRE Revised General Test.
Free test preparation materials for the GRE Revised General Test are available online through the Education Testing Service.
