Gre...

Trying to figure out which review course to take. Has anyone taken the MLIC GRE Turboprep Course? (Found at http://www.greprep.org/index.html) It sounds great, I like the way it is set up, 5 days in a row, rather than once/twice a week over a month/two as Kaplan and the others. I have been unsuccessful in findng any true reviews of the course. If you have any experience with this company or know anything on it, I would appreciate your input!

Thank you.

Honestly, just get one or two GRE prep books and spend some quality time with them over 4-6 weeks. Just my opinion....

Agree with srnamom. I bought 3 books from BooksaMillion, reviewed them for 3 months. Signed up for some free online programs that sends you questions everyday (google for it, can't recall names). That should be enough, I don't see how much more you would benefit from paying all that $$$$$ for what appears to be the same type of review.

I got Kaplan books and was happy with my score. I couldn't see dishing out $1000 for a Kaplan review course. I'm no genius, and math isn't my thing, but I study well and just felt I needed some in-dept review over the types of questions I'd see (I'm okay at math once I'm in the swing of it. . . but I haven't had a math class in about 8 yrs :) ). Like the other poster said, get some review books and spend some quality time with them.

One of my Kaplan books had a CD in it with practice tests, very VERY much like the real thing. Format is the same, it's timed, and it gives you a score. It even has writing prompts. It can't grade your writing, but it gives examples of good essay responses to the questions you were asked so you can kind of see if you hit some of the same points, etc. I say SAVE THE $$$ and buy books.

Oh, yeah. I had been hoping for an 1100 or so since most schools said 1000 was competitive. I got a 1200. YAY!

I took the Gre's three times and kept scoring in the mid to high 800's. I had worked through all books on the market, taken a kaplan course, and all without much help. Desperate, I registered in an unknown company's prep course by mlic company in Atlanta. They use a good structure, and help you hone your math basics with their preprogram training. Their inclass training was held in the galleria area for 5 days, and was hectic but worth the trouble. Mlic taught me stuff that was on the Gre's but not covered in other books. My score improved from 870 to 1310. My program requires me to get over 1100, and 1310 is more than good enough. I think that mlic prep for gre's works. You won't regret it.

Sounds like an ad. :down:

You don't need anything more than prep books and practice tests. Don't pay for a class. If you're smart with a good GPA you shouldn't have trouble making at least 1000. Just be sure to start studying early--cramming doesn't work. Give yourself at least 2 months with steady studying and you'll be fine.

I used the princeton review book with the CD and the 4 online tests. I studied a couple of times a week for a month and scored 1500 three weeks ago. I would advise you to take one of the computer powerprep practice exams that the GRE people provide before you start to study. First, it will sober you right up about preparing for the GRE and, second, it will give immediate feedback regarding how best to spend your study time.

The math was where I had to focus because I hadn't seen some of that stuff since the 1980s. I found that my scores on the practice exams were lower than my actual score on the test. The book and CD do a good job teaching you how to take the test and how to manage your time, which is a big part of the challenge. I knew that the pr and kaplan books were solid, so I just got whichever one they had from the bookstore here in town and got to work. I also found that having my friends and family praying for me was a singularly effective test-taking method.
