The $375 registration fee includes $100 in materials: a textbook about preparing for the GRE, a book with four official GRE retired tests (including detailed explanations for many answers) and a CD with practice tests. There is an additional $15 for registrations received less than 5 working days prior to the first class session.
The GRE prep classes are taught by two experienced test prep teachers who review the content areas covered by the GRE and also outline test-taking strategies. The teachers and the course consistently get high evaluations from the students. Since the beginning of the test prep program at UNC Asheville in the 1990s, we have encouraged students to give us honest feedback about the classes. That student input has contributed to the course development and helped us fine tune the class to meet student needs.
Each session of the class meets two nights a week for four weeks. Four class meetings are dedicated to math and the quantitative part of the GRE. Four nights of class are spent preparing for the verbal and writing portions of the GRE.
Each class meets formally from 6 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. After the class dismisses, the teachers stay another 30 minutes to help individual students with problem areas or just to give practice test items to those who want extra coaching and assistance.
Once a registration is received, a confirmation letter is sent to students with a receipt, room location, directions to campus, a campus map and information about parking.
