Will Barron's be adding more NYS Regents exams to the site?
More exams will be continually added to the site. In a typical year, we add 2 exams for each of the subjects we cover (usually the June and August exams).
Each subject area has a comprehensive database of multiple-choice questions and explanations from 1997 to present while some courses may also
have additional questions from regents exams dating as far back as 1990.
