Preparing for the GRE
About This Course
Applying to graduate school likely means taking the GRE revised General Test. Our preparation course is a must to ensure that you do your best! We’ve been preparing students around the world for graduate school since 1980, and this online format combines the convenience of independent study with the camaraderie of a classroom environment.
The GRE revised General Test has three separate sections – analytical writing, verbal, and quantitative. Our online course is divided into two separate courses, one to prepare you for the analytical writing and verbal sections and one to prepare you for the quantitative section.
- The quantitative course features a math review and techniques for tackling the discrete quantitative and data interpretation questions that make up the math section of the GRE.
- In the course that covers the analytical writing and verbal sections of the GRE, we show you how to do your best on the three types of questions in the verbal section — reading, text completion, and sentence equivalence – and the two essay tasks in the analytical writing section.
- You’ll practice on actual GRE questions from previous years and learn specific time-saving techniques for the computer-based test.
For the online course is $150 for the verbal and $150 for the quantitative sections.
