UNC Asheville Offers GRE and SAT Prep Classes
Fri, 04/22/2011 - 3:28pm
Registration is now open for the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) and Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) prep classes offered by the Asheville Graduate Center. Classes will meet on the UNC Asheville campus.
The SAT prep class will meet for three consecutive weeks from 6-8:30 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays May 16-June 1. The SAT, required for admission to most undergraduate colleges and universities, employs multiple-choice questions designed to gauge verbal and mathematical abilities. The prep course will concentrate on test-taking techniques, timesaving methods and logical reasoning to prepare for the test, which will be offered at area high schools on June 5. Cost for the prep class is $295 and includes study materials. Registration deadline is May 9; late sign-up will result in an additional $15 fee.
The GRE Prep course will meet from 6-9 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays for four consecutive weeks, May 16-June 8. 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 learn test-taking strategies and work with test-simulation exercises. Cost for the course is $375, which includes study materials and a practice CD. Registration deadline is May 9; late sign-up will result in an additional $15 fee.
Note: The GRE Prep course that begins May 16 is designed for the current GRE format, and is suited for those who plan to take the GRE exam before August 1, 2011. The GRE exam will have a new format beginning August 1 and the Asheville Graduate Center at UNC Asheville will offer a new GRE prep course for the new format, beginning in July 2011.
