GRE Prep Courses

 

Our GRE prep courses are a fast and inexpensive way to supplement or guide your own studying.

It is intended as an introduction, and it will NOT prepare you for the GRE without additional studying on your own.

 

For students who prefer an intensive course of study, private companies such as Princeton Review or Kaplan may offer a more appropriate venue.

 

 

After completing the GRE prep course, you should:

  • feel confident that you understand the requirements, scoring, and logistics of the GRE;
  • be able to recognize specific question types on the GRE;
  • know the skill sets that the GRE seeks to test; understand which math concepts are tested on the GRE;
  • have practiced and received feedback on actual GRE writing prompts;
  • be able to evaluate your strengths and areas for improvement as you continue to prepare for the GRE.
