May 25, 2023 — The Academic Advising Center and Extended University are offering an online Graduate Record Exam (GRE) Test Preparation course in May and June.

The six sessions will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays from May 30 through June 15 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Zoom.

The fee is $100. Recommended textbooks, “The Official Guide to the GRE Revised General Test 2nd Edition” and “1,007 Questions for the New GRE 4th Edition” by The Princeton Review” are not included.

The non-credit course is designed to improve scores and reduce test anxiety. Covered topics include arithmetic, text completion, sentence equivalence and vocabulary; algebra, quantitative comparison and reading comprehension; geometry and analytical writing; and data analysis and verbal review.

Instructor Bill Ackerman, who has a master’s degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana – Champaign, has been helping students prepare for the GRE for decades.

The course is open to students and community members.

The GRE is the most common entrance exam for graduate school. It is a broad assessment of critical thinking, analytical writing, verbal reasoning and quantitative reasoning skills.
