The Graduate Records Exam (GRE) Workshop

Every fall (September/October) and winter (January/February), the CLAS Academic Advising Center offers a GRE Workshop which typically lasts four weeks.

The first week is a session which introduces some of the main concepts of the exam. We look at how to sign up, give a general overview, and discuss how to prepare.

The second and third week sessions cover the Quantitative Reasoning portion. We have a professor from the Mathematics department, Dr. Matt Boelkins, reviewing topics such as arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data analysis.

The last session covers the Analytical Writing and Verbal Reasoning portions. Dr. Maureen Wolverton from the Liberal Studies Department will review the writing prompts and how to approach some of the different scenarios.
