GRE Preparation Program

GRE Preparation Program StudentsThe GRE (Graduate Record Examination) is a standardized test that is an admissions requirement of many U.S. graduate schools. Our GRE program has been designed to help you develop the English language proficiency and other skills you will need to take the GRE with confidence.

Beginning in August, 2011, ETS began offering a newly formatted GRE. Our preparation program at Tennessee Technological University is designed to prepare you for the revised exam with attention to new types of test questions and revisions in the test format. The TTU campus provides the perfect motivating environment for your GRE preparation program, with over 10,000 college students, extensive facilities, and dozens of stimulating majors offered.

Our intensive program includes a total of 36 teacher-led lessons per week: 18 lessons of integrated study to improve all English skills; 12 lessons devoted to specific GRE strategies and skills and 6 lessons of Academic Workshops for additional language practice and skill development.

Students work with an experienced instructor to hone their ability in the GRE skills of Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning and Analytical Writing. Practice exams allow instructors to analyze students’ abilities and familiarize students with the test format and strategies.

Please note that students must possess an English fluency of FLS Level 7 or better to enter the GRE Program.
