Testing

In most cases, you will need to take some sort of standardized test to gain admission into a graduate or professional degree program. If you are unsure about what test(s) you need to take, contact the admission office of the school you are targeting. As soon as you are aware of the testing required, you should investigate when and where the test is offered and how much the test will cost. Also, you should begin to familiarize yourself with the overall makeup of the test. Throughout your preparation, you should review the information covered in the test and take at least one practice test under timed conditions. If you need any additional help with your test preparation, you can take advantage of resources in the career services library and other services including:

Practice Tests

Many graduate school applicants familiarize themselves with test directions and question types, practice with sample tests, and study information on test-taking techniques and strategies. Very few testers achieve their full potential without some preparation and practice. Candidates should be familiar with test instructions and question types. Practice tests are available on-line for the GRE, LSAC and MCAT.
