Test Registration and Preparation
Most graduate and professional schools require aptitude tests for admission similar to the ACT or SAT you took to apply to college.
Rule of thumb: get tests out of the way the summer before your senior year.
Strong scores on required tests are critical for acceptance at your chosen grad school. Take the tests seriously, and set aside significant review and preparation time for them.
Review materials are available free of charge for the GRE or for sale on some test registration websites. Excellent candidates download practice tests, review and do at least one and preferably two practice tests which are also on the test websites.
If you feel you need extra discipline, you could also take a review class. The Career Center sponsors a short free GRE information class early in September and review classes are offered at the following universities for a small fee:
- University of Akron preparation classes and online courses
- Cleveland State preparation classes for LSAT, GMAT, GRE
- Cleveland State - Geauga in Burton LSAT, GRE and GMAT prep courses
- NEOUCOM MCAT prep
Commercial companies offer excellent test review seminars but at a significant expense. Examples include:
