Career and Education Help Available Now

If your plans involve a career with exam requirements, the library can help you prepare! Testing and Education Reference Center is a subscription database available from King County Library System (KCLS). Log in with your KCLS library card and PIN to take online practice tests and download PDF study guides for a wide range of careers.

You can find hundreds of practice tests and online courses for different careers, use study aids for certifications and licensing tests, or download PDF Peterson's Study Guides. You will need to create a username and password to access the guides and exams in this database. An email address is also recommended to recover your password if needed. 

If you are searching for schools, you can browse a directory of over 1,000 accredited career colleges, and 35,000 certificates, licenses, and diplomas offered by trade and technical schools.   

Are you interested in a law enforcement career? Downloadable PDF handbooks for state trooper, police officer, border patrol officer, and 911 dispatch exams are all available. Get ready before you take the exam with online practice tests too. If you're working towards a cosmetology license, you can access online practice tests for barbering, nail technology, and massage therapy. Practice what you learned in the classroom before you take your official exams.    

Not interested in cosmetology or law enforcement? There are also resources for real estate, firefighters, military, civil service, and nursing. You can also find resources for high school and college prep, graduate school, US Citizenship tests, and basic math and writing tutorials.

Find Testing and Education Reference Center on the KCLS website under the Online Library menu, on the Job and Career Information page.
