Graduate Record Exam (GRE)

With increasing numbers of students applying to graduate school, admission is more competitive than ever. If you are thinking about a graduate degree, you know the importance of a good score on the Graduate Record Exam. Used by colleges and universities throughout the country as an indicator of general verbal, mathematical, and analytical reasoning ability, the GRE score is viewed by admissions officers and counselors as a significant predictor of performance in graduate programs.

The test was revised last year.  It consists of five separately timed sections focusing on quantitative reasoning, verbal reasoning, and analytical writing skills.  The revised quantitative section continues to test basic mathematical skills and an understanding of algebra and geometry, quantitative reasoning, problem solving, and the ability to interpret graphic data.  In addition, it contains more advanced data analysis as well as more complicated coordinate geometry than the old test.  Because of that, we are adding a sixth class session to the math portion of the course.

The revised verbal section replaces stand-alone vocabulary questions with emphasis on vocabulary in sentence context.  Reading comprehension sections have been expanded to include questions assessing the ability to use critical reasoning and higher cognitive skills in understanding written material. 

Our instructors place emphasis on test content, discussing sound test-taking techniques and strategies.  Adequate preparation is imperative to success on the GRE; the key to test taking is having confidence in one's knowledge and ability.   Books are included in the cost of the class.  STUDENTS ARE REQUESTED TO BRING THEIR OWN WINDOWS CAPABLE LAPTOP TO THE CLASSES.  A $50 fee will be charged for cancellations prior to the start of the test prep class.  Once the sessions have begun NO REFUNDS will be given.
