NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ The Tennessee Electronic Library is a free resource to help people prepare for the GED high school equivalency test.

Many people who started the test are hurrying to finish before the format changes at the beginning of next year. People who have already taken some sections of the test this year but haven't completed the entire test will have to start over beginning on Jan. 1.

The Tennessee Electronic Library is a collection of online databases providing access to hundreds of thousands of periodicals and reference materials. Its test preparation section includes practice tests, self-paced courses and study guides for the GED exam.
