Dayton Metro Library Offers ACT/SAT Practice Tests For Students

The Dayton Metro Library is offering students a practice run on their college entrance exams over the next few weeks. Their ‘Future You: ACT/SAT Practice Test’ program is for students in grades 7-12.

Steve Moser, the Teen Librarian at the Trotwood branch library, says these practice tests can go a long way in preparing students for the real deal.

“We try to provide as real of a setting as they would get when they actually take the test and then immediately afterwards we can input their responses and they get feedback right away on what their score would be," he says. "And it kind of gives them some guidance where they need to focus work to best prepare for the actual test."

Students just need to bring a calculator, pencils, and Moser recommends a bottle of water. They’ll also need to bring their masks and he says there will be plenty of room for students to spread out when they take the tests.

The practice tests are popular but there is still room to pre-register at DaytonMetroLibrary.org, which is required.

The first practice test is this Saturday, September 18, at the Trotwood Branch Library, from 10:30 am – 1 pm

Other dates available:

Wilmington-Stroop Branch Library, Saturday, October 2, from 10:30 am – 1 pm

Vandalia Branch Library, Saturday, October 16, from 10:30 am – 1 pm

To register for one of these programs, or for more information, visit or call the Ask Me Line at 937-463-2665.
