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 have added 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
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. 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.
