(June 7, 2011)--Beginning August 2011, Educational Testing Services (ETS) will replace the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) General Test with the GRE Revised General Test. The new test is expected to be a user-friendly and more flexible exam more focused on the skills needed to succeed in graduate and business school.
Graduate school applicants will see changes to the test’s content, design and scoring.
This year, prospective graduate students should be aware of these key dates:
Registration for the GRE Revised General Test is open now. The first administration of the GRE Revised General Test is Aug. 1. Score reports for tests taken in August and September will be provided by mid-November. Score reports for tests taken in October and November will be provided according to the ETS detailed score reporting schedule. Normal score reporting (10-15 days after the test date) will resume in December.
To learn more about the upcoming changes, visit the GRE website.

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.
At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.
Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.
With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.
Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
The University of Texas at San Antonio is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge through research and discovery, teaching and learning, community engagement and public service. As an institution of access and excellence, UTSA embraces multicultural traditions and serves as a center for intellectual and creative resources as well as a catalyst for socioeconomic development and the commercialization of intellectual property - for Texas, the nation and the world.
To be a premier public research university, providing access to educational excellence and preparing citizen leaders for the global environment.
