About the Program

In this nine-part, online course you will learn everything you need to know to be successful on the Graduate Record Examination. The course covers general test-taking strategies and an in-depth look at each of the major sections of the test: Verbal, Quantitative Reasoning and Analytical Writing. Unlike some GRE preparation courses, this program has an online-tutor who is available to help you with questions related to your work. An adaptive math program is also available to help you polish up on the math fundamentals. Also, University of Montana staff in the Writing Center will personally consult with you on your written work.

The course is supported by ETS, the official provider of the GRE course, and was designed by University of Montana staff to serve a diverse population of returning students.
