Free Practice GRE Exam Tests With Review of Questions
Our course concludes with the writing of full-length simulated Computer-Based Tests (CBTs) during which test conditions are carefully reproduced. This provides our students with an excellent opportunity to practice and review (under GRE exam conditions) the many skills they have acquired during the weekend course.
Limited Class Size
In order to ensure a low student-to-instructor ratio, our GRE course has a limited enrollment with spaces allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. The small class size provides a comfortable setting with ample opportunity for interaction with our talented and experienced GRE course instructors.
Free Repeat Policy
Our GRE course includes a free repeat policy which allows students to repeat the entire course one time, free of charge, within one year of their original course start date. Some students take advantage of this policy to review and re-attend our test prep course for double the preparation time at one low price.
In order to ensure a low student-to-instructor ratio, we ask free repeat students to contact us in advance to reserve their place in the upcoming GRE course.
