Knowledge Is Power

No matter what test you’re preparing for, the first step in any successful prep program is understanding the rules of the game. Or, as a wise man (Kendrick Lamar? Pretty sure it was Kendrick) once said, “Know your enemy.”

Fortunately, we’ve been around the block a few times, so we know a few things — almost 40 years’ worth of things, in fact. And because you’re our favorite, we want you to be able to know things, too. So if you have questions about the test, from scoring to accommodations to fundamental strategies, you can find the answers here. And if you don’t see the information you’re looking for, let us know at help@inspirica.com and we’ll fill in the gap just as soon as we can.

An Overview of the GRE and GRE Test Prep

The Graduate Record Examination General Test, or GRE General Test, is a standardized-test created by the Educational Testing Service (ETS), the firm behind the previous versions of the SAT. As a central component of the graduate school application process, this test is taken by students who have either completed or are close to completing their undergraduate degrees. It is required by nearly every graduate program in the United States as part of their application processes, and it is also often accepted by business and law schools in place of either the GMAT or LSAT. Students interested in pursuing advanced degrees should therefore expect to prepare for and take this test, which is often thought of as the “big brother” of the SAT: a 3-hour and 45-minute challenge that tests your algebra, geometry, data analysis, vocabulary, and advanced reading comprehension skills. Unlike the SAT, however, the GRE is typically administered via computer, so Inspirica’s approach to the test includes a mix of content, structure, and strategy, preparing you for the variety of complex tasks you will face on test day.
