If you are planning on enrolling in graduate school, Varsity Tutors can get you started in a Milwaukee GRE prep course to help you build foundational subject knowledge and efficient test-taking skills to prepare you for the exam.

If you intend to pursue your master's or doctoral degree at Marquette University Graduate School or the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, the GRE will most likely be a mandatory element of your application package. Even if your target program at your desired university doesn't require a GRE score, each university has different requirements, meaning that it's best to cover your bases if you plan on applying to a variety of colleges. Scoring well on the GRE can help boost your application by showing admissions counselors that you're capable of solving complex problems in a variety of subjects.

What can a Milwaukee GRE class help me review?
The GRE is a wide-ranging exam that will measure the various skills and knowledge you've accrued throughout your academic career by testing you in three main sections: Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Analytical Writing. You may also encounter one of two unscored sections, Experimental or Research. The Experimental section, if present, will be embedded in either the Verbal or Quantitative Reasoning sections. The optional Research section would appear at the end of the GRE. On average, the test takes approximately 3 hours and 45 minutes to complete. Let's break down the different sections of the exam to give you a better idea of what to expect.
The Verbal Reasoning section assesses your skills in understanding the meaning of individual words and sentences, summarizing passages, analyzing texts and drawing conclusions, evaluating arguments, and your ability to interpret meaning from context, among other things. You will answer three different types of question, including reading comprehension, text completion, and sentence equivalence. These questions might ask you to use incomplete information in a single sentence to choose the best answers for how it should be completed, decide the best answer for blank sections of short passages, and demonstrate your understanding of complex passages.
The Quantitative Reasoning portion of the GRE will assess your basic mathematical skills, understanding of elementary mathematical concepts, and your ability to reason quantitatively by modeling and solving problems using different quantitative methods. The questions in this section draw on high school mathematics and statistics. You will be tasked with answering questions posed in real-life settings, transposing word problems into mathematical models, and answering purely mathematical questions. For some of you, high school may have been a long time ago, meaning that it's important to brush up on your arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data analysis skills in order to answer questions involving coordinate geometry, exponents, standard deviation, and functions.
The Analytical Writing section of the exam measures your ability to analyze textual passages by asking you to separately evaluate an argument and an issue. To succeed in this section you must express your ideas clearly, organize your supporting claims, present direct evidence to back up your stance, and logically organize the key elements of your essay to form a cogent response. Brushing up on your vocabulary and grammar can help lend decisive style and tone to your essay, and avoiding choppy or run-on sentences can help ensure that your writing flows naturally from point to point.
How can a Milwaukee GRE course help me prepare for my exam?
If you are seeking customized instruction tailored to cover all elements of the GRE, enrolling in a Milwaukee GRE class is a great way to ensure you are covering all your bases. With new two- and four-week sessions beginning weekly, you can jump in whenever your schedule permits. You will attend live sessions where you can see, hear, and interact with your instructor. You will also be able to interact with fellow students, granting you the ability to share ideas, build relationships, and strategize together. If you are struggling with the sentence equivalence questions in the Verbal Reasoning section, you can work with peers to develop skills in contextualizing and explicating meanings from text passages. You've probably already participated in online learning at some point in your academic career, but if you haven't, our online platform is intuitive and easy to navigate.
Studying in an online Milwaukee GRE prep course also allows you to schedule one-on-one time with your instructor to address any issues you might be having with different elements of the test. For example, if your quantitative reasoning skills are a bit rusty, your instructor can help you work on your mathematical concepts by providing you with practice quizzes and sample questions.
