Search engines are most useful for finding:

(answers will vary according to topic and research, click on links above for tutorials to learn more)

Many of the exam questions are quite similar to the assignments and quizzes found in the Internet Navigator online course. Review the quizzes and assignments in the Internet Navigator online course. Are you able to answer those questions correctly?  If yes, try taking the exam. If you are not sure of the answers you may choose to take a course instead of the exam, or study the following before taking the exam.

Remember, we recommend taking a course, Lib Sci 1704, Lib Sci/BusAdm 2704, or  Lib Sci 2201, instead of taking the exam , whenever possible, to meet the Information Literacy requirement.
