Use Learning Express for Future Success

The Learning Express Library is a wonderful database for CSN students to use to develop skills for the classroom and workplace.

The modules contain downloadable ebooks, practice tests, interactive tutorials, and practice sets. All content is available on mobile devices. Features include instant test and essay scoring and detailed answer explanations for those challenging math questions. You’re also given guidance about the best way to use the resources.

Prepare for College Placement Exams: This area of the College Students Center in Learning Express focuses on the ACCUPLACER test which is used at CSN to place you in a course related to your current skills and where you’ll be successful. You can take the practice tests to see how well you know the material and then go to the review modules and tutorials to study until you feel comfortable enough to take the placement exam. Save time and money by placing into the course you actually need for your degree.
