The Graduate Record Exam (GRE) is a critical application component for a variety of master’s and doctoral degree programs. The exam measures critical thinking, analytical writing, verbal reasoning and quantitative reasoning skills that have been acquired over a long period of time and are not related to any specific field of study.

The University of Delaware’s GRE Live-Online Test Prep course is designed for those looking to return to school, recent graduates and current undergraduate students seeking assistance with the complex quantitative and verbal skills needed to succeed on the GRE. It is ideal for those pursuing an advanced degree within the next five years. Fields of study that typically require or accept the GRE include education, medicine, social work, public administration and business. Many MBA programs now accept the GRE as well.
