Prep courses offered for GRE graduate entrance exam

The Williamson College of Business Administration at Youngstown State University is offering non-credit review courses to help people prepare for the verbal and quantitative sections of the Graduate Record Exam.

The Graduate Record Exam is a test required as a part of the admissions process for many graduate programs. YSU requires applicants to the master’s of business administration program to take either the GRE or the Graduate Management Admissions Test.

Individuals can register for one or both sections of the GRE prep course. The courses will not be graded, and the courses do not count toward degree requirements. Each course consists of four, four-hour sessions, and will meet on four consecutive Saturdays – Oct. 6, 13, 20 and 27 – in room 2225 of Williamson Hall on the YSU campus. The quantitative sections will be 8 a.m. to noon, and the verbal sections will follow from 1 to 5 p.m. The cost is $155 for each course, or $255 for both.

Class participants will have the opportunity to take practice tests, measure progress, learn the reasoning behind questions and gain confidence preparing for the GRE. Each participant will receive a GRE prep book.
