GRE Verbal Score: 167

‘The class was definitely worth the time and money, and I've recommended it to those preparing for the GRE. I went from having no idea what I was doing to realizing I can do this. The class gave me all the resources-books, practice tests, tips, study techniques-that I needed to do well. My scores all went up, and I'm most proud that my verbal went up 21 points!’

—Jacob C.
Verbal Score: 92nd percentile!

"The GRE class was worth every penny! The math teacher simplified difficult math concepts that I’d struggled with my entire life. Because of that, I raised my math score 200 points, and beat my English score! On the GRE I scored a 660 in English, a 680 in Math and a 5.5 in writing.”

—Jenny K.
LSAT Score: 172

“I took the BYU test prep course for the LSAT. The course provided me with enough practice tests to participate in class and practice on my own. It was a pleasure to learn from such experienced teachers and to benefit from such resources. I was able to score a 172 on the LSAT because of the preparation I received at BYU.”

—Debi H.
DAT Score: 21

“BYU DAT test prep helped me to find where I was weak. This helped me to curb my personal study onto subjects that I didn’t have such a firm grasp on. The results were phenomenal!
Academic: 21
Perceptual: 22”

—Geoffrey C.
MCAT Score: 37

“BYU’s MCAT prep class was definitely helpful. I took the first test and scored around 30, and my final score was 37. It was much cheaper than other prep courses and helped me a lot. Now I am in a top medical school and would certainly do it again if given the choice.”

—Joseph N.
ACT Score: 32

“I took the ACT and got a 25, but since I wanted to get into BYU, I wanted a better score. I participated in the BYU ACT Test Prep class and it really helped. After the class, I got a 32 on the ACT, with a 35 in English. This class was fabulous! I definitely suggest taking the test once, taking the class, and then watching your score improve.”

—Valerie M.
GMAT Score Improved 150+ points!

“BYU’s test prep course, along with my own personal study, allowed me to improve my score by over 150 points. Getting my target GMAT score on the first try gave me extra time to focus on my essays and get my applications in order. I was accepted to Columbia and the University of Chicago.”

—Carlos Z.

GRE Information

The GRE General Test, required by most graduate schools, many vet schools, and various other health professional schools, is considered a good predictor of your success in a graduate program. It is not a test of specific knowledge in any subject, but rather a measurement of your ability to respond to questions in limited time.

It is a timed test broken down into six sections:
Two Verbal sections (about 20 questions and 30 minutes each)
Two Quantitative Sections (about 20 questions and 35 minutes each)
One Analytical Writing Section with two separately timed tasks (1 questions and 30 minutes per writing task)
One Experimental (Un-scored) Section (30-35 minutes)

The GRE General Test is also unique because it is a Multi–Stage Test (MST), which means that the difficulty level of the second section of each subject will be determined by the test-takers performance on the first section. Each test administered is different for each student.

Scores are broken down into three different section scores:

  • Analytical Writing (6 point scale in half-point increments)
  • Verbal (130–170 scale in 1–point increments)
  • Quantitative (130–170 scale in 1–point increments)

Advantages of the New Revised GRE

  • Preview and review capabilities within a section
  • A “mark and review” feature to tag questions, so you can skip and return later
  • The ability to change/edit answers within a section
  • An on–screen calculator for the Quantitative Reasoning section
  • New answer formats, including tasks such as numeric entry and highlighting a sentence in a passage to answer a question

** Be sure to visit your prospective schools’ Web sites to check application and scholarship deadlines as well as score/GPA expectations.
