Give grad school hopefuls the correct answer to pretesting

The Graduate Record Exam (GRE®) is a standardized test administered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS). Aspiring grad students need to study in advance when it comes to their writing skills, vocabulary, reading comprehension, arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data analysis. The GRE general test has three timed sections: analytical writing, verbal reasoning, and quantitative reasoning. Within quantitative reasoning, there are four types of questions: quantitative comparison, multiple choice, one-or-more answers, and numeric-entry questions.

As part of Gale Presents: Peterson's Test and Career Prep, the GRE Test Prep includes eight interactive practice tests and a digital rights management (DRM)–free eBook with additional exams. There are even helpful test-taking strategies included.

Peterson’s supplements exam resources by offering students practice tests at significant cost savings versus hiring a tutor or purchasing other study materials. The content covers the same material that test-takers will find on the entrance exam administered by ETS, but the GRE prep tests aren’t intended to replicate it.

The goal is to help individuals score well by gaining knowledge and expertise within the subject areas covered. The GRE practice tests are created by subject matter experts and change as major revisions are announced. They provide students with immediate scores and feedback. Students can retake the practice tests to check their progress over time.

In order to be in the top 10 percent of all test-takers, students must earn scores of 163–170 in verbal reasoning, 165–170 in the quantitative section, and 5.0–6.0 in writing. On the flip side, below-average GRE scores are 151 or below in verbal reasoning, 152 or below in the quantitative section, and 3.5 or below in writing.
