GMAT Prep Helps with New Section

August 31, 2012

To assist in preparing for the GMAT, Xavier University’s Williams College of Business offers test preparation workshops. The workshops are designed to help review basic algebra and geometry, sentence structure, to present the format of the test, to prepare for the new integrated reasoning section and to give general testing strategies. Such preparation, combined with self-study, makes people more comfortable in the testing situation and helps maximize performance. Registration is required.

Early bird registration (by 5pm on 9/18 for the 9/22 or 9/25 sessions or by 5 pm on 11/6 for the 11/10 or 11/17 session) is $175 for both verbal and quantitative. After those cutoffs, the regular price is $210 for both. You can register for just one session for $110. The price includes a copy of the Princeton Review’s “Cracking the New GMAT” as well as breakfast, lunch and the course packet for each session.

Xavier’s program is preferred by many because the sessions are just two weekends, are cost-effective and benefit those who want a little help with self-preparation for the GMAT but do not want or need something as expensive and intense as other options.
