GRE Courses Introduction

If you've set your sights on mastering the GRE before you register, then you know you'll need to prepare for it with practice tests, books, apps, tutoring or GRE courses. If taking a class has been on your mind, then you're in the right spot! Many test prep companies out there offer GRE courses to help you master the skills, testing techniques and knowledge you'll need for test day. The Princeton Review is one of those companies.

The Princeton Review GRE Courses

The Princeton Review is one of the largest, most recognizable test prep companies out there. They offer all sorts of test prep options for every major standardized test: books, tutoring, online classes, small group instruction, hybrid courses, you name it. But since you're in the market for GRE courses, then the three following GRE courses are the best of what The Princeton Review has to offer.

With each of the courses, you get the Princeton Review Guarantee: If at the end of our course, you do not feel ready to take the test for which you are preparing, you may repeat the GRE course or take a refresher course. OR if at the end of the course, you are not satisfied, regardless of how much your score improves, you may continue to work with them for up to a year. OR if, after taking your class, your score doesn't improve, you may receive a tuition refund.

The Princeton Review's Classroom GRE course is just as it states: you'll take your classes in an actual classroom with an actual Princeton Review teacher. The classes and times will vary according to your exact location, but I typed in my zip code, and found seven classes available for enrollment less than 20 miles from my location.
