Registration is now open for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) prep classes offered by the Asheville Graduate Center. Classes will meet on the UNC Asheville campus beginning March 18.
The GRE Prep course will meet from 6-8:30 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays for four consecutive weeks, March 18 – April 10. After the class officially ends at 8:30 p.m., the instructors stay another 30 minutes to help individual students with problem areas, and to give practice test items to those who want extra coaching and assistance.
The GRE prep classes are taught by two experienced instructors who review the content areas covered by the GRE and also outline test-taking strategies. The course is designed to increase familiarity with the various types of verbal, quantitative and analytical questions presented on the GRE computer-generated general test, required by most graduate programs for admission. Students will also work with test-simulation exercises.
Cost for the course is $375, which includes study materials, a book and CD with practice tests. Register by March 13 to avoid a $15 late registration fee.
