UNC Asheville Offers GRE and SAT Prep Classes in September
Tue, 08/23/2011 - 9:29am
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 from 6-8:30 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays for three consecutive weeks, September 12-28. 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 next be offered at area high schools on October 1. Cost for the prep class is $295 and includes study materials. Registration deadline is September 2; late registration will result in an additional $15 fee.
The GRE Prep course will meet from 6-8:30 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays for four consecutive weeks, September 12-October 5. After the class officially ends at 8:30 p.m., the instructors stay another 30 minutes to help individual students with problem areas or just to give practice test items to those who want extra coaching and assistance. 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. Registration deadline is September 2; late registration will result in an additional $15 fee.
