Questions About the GRE

How many times should I take the GRE?

Most people are better off preparing thoroughly for the test, taking it one time and getting their top score. You may take the test as often as you like, but many graduate schools will average your scores. You should contact the schools to which you are applying to find out their policies. If you know you did poorly, you have the option of canceling the test immediately after completing it, and graduate schools will not know about your score.

Students typically raise their score when they retake the test. Students who raise their score the most tend to be students with high GPA's who scored poorly on the GRE nonetheless. Students who made glaring errors on test day, such as running out of time, will also tend to perform better.

How should I prepare for the GRE?
The GRE is critical for acceptance to prestigious schools. The GRE CAT is an awkward and extremely difficult test that requires tremendous preparation. Plan on investing at least 50 hours.
You should consider buying several prep packages and taking at least ten practice tests (we offer suggestions as part of our course). 800score.com offers an online course. If you want an online course, click here 800score.com/gre-ordercourse.html. if you need a classroom course, go here: 800score.com/gre-course.html. Students typically start with 800score.com and then may take a prep class if they find that they need additional help. For more information, read this article by 800score.com's founder on How to Prepare for the GMAT Online (this is about the GMAT, but useful for GRE students). Good Luck!
