State Library of Kansas LearningExpress

The LearningExpress Library has been purchased by the State Library of Kansas, so it is free for all residents of Kansas.

Practice tests for college, occupational exams, and the General Educational Development (GED) exam are included along with many other self-guided tutorials.  

Access to this and other state library purchased databases is enabled from Kansas public institutions, but you still need to register your own username and password for the LearningExpress Library.

Access from off-campus and mobile device access is best when you use your free Kansas Library Card to login to the State Library site.

If you don't have a Kansas Library Card, get one at Hale Library Help desk by showing your K-State ID card or other proof of Kansas residence, such as a driver's license.
