Local parents and educators have cause for excitement with the addition of STAAR preparation resources, including elementary and secondary lessons and practice tests, to Brainfuse HelpNow’s SkillSurfer. HelpNow is one of three (HelpNow, JobNow, VetNow)
Brainfuse digital resources available for New Braunfels Public Library cardholders, as well as for the library’s Internet cardholders.
“Testing can be stressful and taking practice tests can be an effective way to help prepare for exams,” said Youth Services Librarian Jenny Rodriguez. “Brainfuse now offers practice tests for the Texas STAAR reading, math, social studies, science, and writing exams in addition to AP exams, high school equivalency, and college entrance test prep. Now we can offer our community’s students another resource to help them be successful academically.”
“We are excited that Brainfuse HelpNow has expanded its already robust learning resources to include STAAR tutorials for grades 3-12,” said Digital Resources Librarian Miranda Robbins. “Students can use this tool to practice their skills in all aspects of school with homework help, writing labs, college prep, and now state testing.”
