Why Should You Take Longwood’s GRE Prep Class?

We can help you take this first step toward an advanced degree. Our prep class will give you the skills and confidence you need to maximize your score on the GRE. Our curriculum covers each of the three main sections of the GRE® General Test — Analytical Writing, Verbal Reasoning, and Quantitative Reasoning. We will guide you through each section and prepare you for the question types you’re likely to encounter on test day.

You’ll receive 24 hours of targeted instruction to help you fully prepare. In addition, you’ll receive all class materials, which include a workbook and the official textbook from ETS, with practice tests which will allow you to use the skills and strategies you’re learning on previously released test questions. Our class will help you master techniques to improve your score with the guidance of experienced GRE instructors.

This class includes expert instruction, a proven format, all required class materials, access to diagnostic exams, and online support resources in one convenient, affordable package.  The package cost for GRE Prep is $749.00.

 

“I truly don’t think I would have passed the exam without your class. You were very supportive and provided many insightful tips on taking the exam. The course was worth every penny.”


Convenient Online Format

GRE Prep classes are offered live-online, giving you the option to choose the schedule that works best for you. Our virtual classroom allows you to interact in real-time with your instructor and re-watch the class recordings at your convenience. This package includes access to recordings of all class modules, an instructor-monitored question forum, and online office hours. Access to online resources continues for 30 days after your last day of class, so you’ll still have resources for your independent practice after class is over.
