Sample GRE Course Syllabus
Class 1: Foundations of GRE Logic
You’ll review the GRE exam format, its sections, and test-taking strategies.

The GRE tends to twist the building blocks of math into clever questions. To master these, you’ll work on factors, multiples, divisibility, ratios, and percents.
Class 3: Text Completion and Sentence Equivalence
You’ll learn how the GRE constructs questions to assess your reading comprehension and critical thinking skills, and then we’ll arm you with strategies to see through the test’s trickery.
Class 4: Algebra
You’ll be taught how algebra is not merely a collection of rules, but a set of action items that help you work through problems. You’ll learn strategies to solve for roots, exponents, inequalities, quadratics, and algebraic operations.
Class 5: Critical Reasoning
You’ll hone your critical thinking skills and navigate densely-worded problems by mastering the SWIM Method and the Assumption Negation Technique.
Class 6: Geometry and Statistics
You’ll learn essential rules and strategies for two- and three-dimensional shapes, coordinate geometry, statistics, probability, and combinatorics.
Class 7: Reading Comprehension
You’ll learn strategies for reading passages and for each of the four major question types: Specific, Universal, Function, and Inference.
Class 8: Word Problems and Data Analysis
You’ll learn how to navigate common word problem structures (rate, mixture, weighted average, and Venn diagrams), and convert word problems into equations. As the class progresses, you’ll also master the common types of graphs, charts, and tables featured on the GRE.
Class 9: The Analytical Writing Measure
For the essay writing portion of the GRE, you’ll come away with clear goals for each paragraph and proven templates to organize your thoughts and address the GRE’s scoring rubric.
Class 10: Quantitative Strategy
In your final class, you’ll learn time-saving, accuracy-maximizing techniques for Quantitative Comparison, “select all that apply,” and other challenging question types.
