The course will include an overview of math concepts, including quantitative comparisons, data interpretation, geometry, algebra and arithmetic.  The course will prepare participants for the verbal section of the exam by reviewing strategies for tackling reading comprehension exercises, analogies and sentence completions. Students will also learn tips on how to expand their vocabulary. 

The cost is $350, including textbook and materials. The GRE is the test commonly required for admission to graduate schools other than business, law or medical schools.
