Spring is approaching quickly-- and while for some the season brings to mind leisure and longer days, if you're applying to college soon, you might be thinking more about entrance exams than flowers and butterflies. Whether you're an educator, a parent or a college applicant yourself, you should know the Fresno County Public Library has online tools to help you prepare for the SAT, the ACT and Advanced Placement (AP) exams. As long as you have a library card, you can use them from home, school or wherever you have internet access.
