My instructor for the course was VERY good at helping me to solve difficult problems and to CLEARLY walk through them step by step with me. This is a great course. I feel 100% better prepared for taking my GRE and am grateful for the opportunity to take this class online (as I live far from town). Thanks for a great learning experience!
Thanks a bunch! This has helped me greatly to remember things I thought were gone forever!
Thank you so much for everything! I've learned new ways to approach problems that I previously thought were beyond my ability! Also I so appreciate your encouraging way of communicating and your patience in explaining problems step-by-step. This course has actually helped me feel hopeful and positive about this test, instead of just terrified! THANK YOU!
The course work was extremely well organized. The material for each Lesson was clearly, and precisely outlined and presented. The Instructor was well informed, very well prepared, and very helpful.
The instructor is fabulous! She answers any and all questions, quickly and thoroughly. I would recommend this course to anyone taking the GRE's.
This course has helped to be more focused. I now know what I must to do to become better. It has been insightful information that will be used in many other test taking situations. Thank you and wish me luck!
This course was exactly what I was looking for in order to refresh myself with the material. I am so glad that I found it!
Very informative and convenient

Prepare for test day by learning how to relax when you feel panicky, how to eliminate the wrong answers the tests entice you to choose, how to guess when you're not sure, and how much time to spend on each question. You’ll also learn about all the different types of GRE math questions so you’ll know exactly what’s in store.
Review the essentials of arithmetic such as multiplication and division, and clarify concepts that might be a little fuzzy, like exponents and fractions. Then review all the pertinent standard algebra concepts you may not remember from high school, such as variables, factoring, and functions, so that you'll know exactly how to answer algebra-related GRE questions.
Take a look at the basics of coordinate geometry, such as intercepts and slope; then we'll explore functions and how to graph equations and functions on the coordinate plane. You’ll also rediscover the properties of angles, triangles, squares, circles, and other shapes so that you can answer questions that ask for those pesky measurements for lines, curves, and angles.
Learn how to prepare for all of the statistics-related questions you may encounter on the GRE including tendency, frequency, and probability. Then tackle the GRE quantitative comparison questions which present two values with three answer options: determine which is greater, equal, or the question doesn't provide enough information to make a determination.
Learn how to evaluate charts and graphs you are likely to encounter in the GRE quantitative reasoning sections, apply your evaluations, and quickly respond. Then practice using the tools you’ll need to work through standard math questions, the most common problems you’re likely to encounter, quickly.
Practice! Practice! Practice! Gain plenty of opportunity to practice the types of questions you will most likely see on your GRE including quantitative reasoning, standard math questions, and analyzing data in charts and graphs.

There are no prerequisites for this course.
A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!
Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.
Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.
