What could Sacramento GRE prep cover?

The GRE is primarily a computer-based exam that can take up to three hours and 45 minutes to complete. There are three main sections: Analytical Writing, Verbal Reasoning, and Quantitative Reasoning. Your exam may also include an Experimental or Research section. Let's take a deeper look at each portion of the GRE.

The Analytical Writing section consists of two tasks and you will have a total of one hour to complete them. One task will present an issue while the other offers an argument. You will have 30 minutes to analyze and respond to each one. This section assesses your command of written English. You will need to demonstrate strong communication and organizational skills while supporting your ideas with reason and evidence. Time management is crucial, as you will need to save some time to plan and edit your response.

The Verbal Reasoning section focuses on three types of questions: reading comprehension, text completion, and sentence equivalence. Reading comprehension questions relate to a passage, which may be drawn from humanities, business, biological sciences, and other topics. Some passages will have up to six questions. Text completion questions aim to assess your ability to interpret and evaluate information while sentence equivalence tests your ability to identify words or phrases that hold the same meaning. Overall, you will need to demonstrate a solid grasp of the English language.

Finally, the Quantitative Reasoning section focuses on your math, logic, and problem-solving skills. You will face a variety of math content, such as arithmetic, data analysis, algebra, and geometry. There are three types of questions: quantitative comparison, multiple-choice with one or more answers, and numeric entry. Each question on this section is presented either as a data interpretation set or an independent, discrete question.

When it comes to the Experimental and Research sections, there are some key differences to note. The Experimental section is embedded within the Quantitative or Verbal Reasoning sections. The Research section may take the place of the Experimental and isn't presented until the end of the test. While both are unscored and serve as a try-out for potential future questions, the Experimental section is mandatory and not identified, while the Research portion is both identified and optional.

How can I benefit from different types of Sacramento GRE prep?

Varsity Tutors can connect you with two types of GRE review: prep classes and personal tutoring. Each option presents a variety of unique benefits, and you always have the opportunity to participate in a combination of the two. Let's talk about how you can benefit from enrolling a test review class or working one-on-one with a private instructor.

Students who prefer to work and learn in groups can sign up for a two- or four-week Sacramento GRE prep class. Classes are held online via an interactive classroom that allows you and your peers to interact with your expert instructor freely. A prep class can be a convenient and affordable option that can allow you to build your skills, ask questions, and engage in group activities and discussions.

Once you're enrolled in a prep class, the collaborative environment may increase your retention as you explore new techniques and concepts. Your instructor can demonstrate different ways to approach a problem, offer insight to the challenges the test presents, and introduce your class to test-taking techniques that can help you manage your time efficiently during the Analytical Writing section. Your class instructor can walk your class through the exam to cut down on potential surprises. Classes for test prep even allow you the chance to work one-on-one with your instructor.

Some students benefit more from one-on-one study sessions that are centered around their educational needs. If you'd prefer to work with a Sacramento GRE tutor, our educational consultants can get you set up with a private mentor who has been thoroughly vetted for experience, knowledge, and skills. Your instructor can develop a customized test review plan that takes your learning preference, skills, areas of opportunity, and testing goals into account. They can use this to take a unique approach to your test review sessions, allowing your instructor to offer activities and materials that are conducive to your ability to learn.

Working with a private instructor can allow you to focus on the concepts and skills on which you have the most room for improvement. Your mentor can assess your abilities through practice tests, sample questions, and other activities. They can use this information to adjust your focus as needed. If you feel confident about a subject or section, you can spend more time improving your quantitative and problem-solving skills for the Quantitative Reasoning section. Whatever topic you need assistance in improving, a private GRE tutor can work with you to find the best approach as you go after your GRE goals.
