Regents Review info for 2014

Did you know that the New York State Department of Education puts all the past Regents exams online – with the answer keys?

http://www.nysedregents.org/

If you are in the library, we still carry both the “red books” Barron’s Regents Exams and Answers:

regents red

and the “blue books” Barron’s Let’s Review:

regentsblue

Remember, the red books are JUST the exams and answers, while the blue books have more review material as well.

 This year there are some changes and additions to the Regents Review Live website. 

www.regentsreviewny.net – new link, new name Regents Review NY.  Additional Common Core info for Math and ELA is online.

Click under “Full Videos“ and select a subject for more resources, including Powerpoint presentations reviewing the subject.

This year the broadcasting schedule is not on WCNY, which is the host website, because they are opting to put the Regents Review content exclusively online. However, WLIW’s schedule is here: http://www.wliw.org/itv/programs/regents.html
