The GRE (Graduate Record Examination) can be a daunting undertaking. This guide is here to help you prepare for the examination, gain familiarity with its format, and enable you to register to take the examination.
A course pack with study tips and practice problems can be purchased for about $3 at the Help Desk at the BU Bookstore. We provide a free workshop that will familiarize you with the GRE as well as the course pack (choose one below). An answer key to the questions in the course pack will be provided for free at the workshop. We also provide the opportunity for students to complete two free computerized practice tests – there are three dates to choose from (see below).
Attend one of these dates/times for an overview of the GRE and this program:
