The course is designed to increase familiarity with the various types of verbal, quantitative and analytical questions presented on the newly revised GRE computer-generated general test, required by most graduate programs for admission. Students will also learn test-taking strategies and work with test-simulation exercises. Cost for the course is $375, which includes study materials and a practice CD.
