Test Prep Workshops

Graduate Record Examination (GRE)

The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is taken by those who are interested in pursuing a graduate program outside of business and management. Specific graduate programs requiring the GRE include education, the humanities, some sciences, or the arts. GRE Prep workshops are an affordable option to help you prepare for the exam.

Law School Admissions Test (LSAT)

The Law School Admission Test® (LSAT®) is a half–day standardized test required for admission to law schools that are members of the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC). The language of the questions is made deliberately subtle, confusing, and difficult to fully grasp.

Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)

The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is a standardized test designed to measure basic critical reading, math and writing skills. It is also one of the more popular forms of measurement at major colleges and universities when making freshman acceptance decisions.
