UNC Asheville Offers GRE and SAT Prep Courses Beginning in October
Thu, 10/03/2013 - 10:08am
Registration is now open for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) prep classes offered by the Asheville Graduate Center. Classes will meet on the UNC Asheville campus.
The GRE Prep course will meet from 6-8:30 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays for four consecutive weeks, October 14 – November 6. After the class officially ends at 8:30 p.m., the instructors stay another 30 minutes to help individual students with problem areas and 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 GRE computer-generated general test, required by most graduate programs for admission. Students will also work with test-simulation exercises. Cost for the course is $375, which includes study materials, a book and CD with practice tests. Register by October 9 to avoid a $15 late registration fee.
The SAT prep class will meet from 6-8:30 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays for three consecutive weeks, October 14 – 30. The SAT, required for admission to most undergraduate colleges and universities, employs multiple-choice questions designed to gauge verbal and mathematical abilities, and also has a writing component. The prep course will cover all aspects of the SAT test, and includes test-taking techniques, timesaving methods and logical reasoning. The SAT will be offered at area high schools on November 2. Cost for the prep class is $295 and includes study materials.
