Overview: PrepSuccess™ GRE PREP courses are open to anyone regardless of the undergraduate program you attended or the graduate program you wish to attend. The course is 42 hours in duration because many students need to re-learn (or learn for the first time) principles of mathematics that are required for the quantitative section of the exam. While our course may be twice as long as other prep programs, it is generally less than half the cost of the competition. We teach GRE PREP courses in traditional classrooms located in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill and the Fayetteville region of North Carolina and simultaneously broadcast the instruction over the Internet using Cisco System’s WebEx technology. We also digitally record each course so that students can access all instruction over the Internet 24/7. Students located beyond commuting distance can see, hear, and participate in every classroom activity. Visit Web Based Learning for more information.
FREE Classroom Visit: We invite you to visit a class so that you can experience the PrepSuccess™ learning process as well as speak with the faculty and students. To schedule a visit, view the dates and times of classes in the registration table and call 919-791-0810 to coordinate. Travel Guidance is provided to each course, so ensure you print a copy of the directions prior to leaving for the class.
“Thank you again for the class and especially your encouragement which helped me stay motivated. It is evident that you care about your students and their success” (Read entire comment) (Susan Gergely, MBA; Chief Operating Officer, American Organization of Nurse Executives, American Hospital Association; DrPH Candidate, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.)
Course Description: The 42-hour GRE PREP course consists of Math, Verbal, and Quantitative content taught over a period of seven weeks. Students complete six computer based tests outside normal class hours thus the time in class is focused 100% on instruction. Most of our courses are taught in six-hour classes on either Saturdays or Sundays from 9 am – 4 pm. Occasionally some courses are taught in three-hour classes on Mondays and Thursdays from 6 pm to 9 pm.
Math: 14 hours reviewing arithmetic, algebra, word problems, geometry, graphs, and data analysis.
Verbal: 14 hours reviewing all components of the GRE© Verbal Reasoning section: Sentence Equivalence, Text Completion, Reading Comprehension, and Analytical Writing, and vocabulary development.
Quantitative: 14 hours applying the math content to the GRE© Quantitative Reasoning section of the exam. We focus on techniques that will help you answer quantitative comparisons and discrete quantitative questions, and build on your knowledge of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, data and graph analysis, probability, and analysis of word problems.
Strategy: We integrate tips and tricks into the solution of each question so that YOU decide the approach that works best for YOU. We teach direct approaches which help you select the correct answer; we also teach indirect approaches which help you substitute or “back-solve” in order to select the best answer.
Textbook: The registration fee does not include the cost of the textbook (about $30) which students purchase before the first day of class.
The Official Guide to the GRE© General Test Third Edition
ISBN 978-1259862410 published in 2017 by Educational Testing Service (ETS). If the course you wish to attend begins in fewer than 14 days, please purchase the book from a local bookstore so that you can prepare for the first class. (The Third Edition was published in January 2017; we will no longer use the Second Edition).
Course Pack: We provide online access to PrepSuccess handouts, slides, equations, vocabulary lists, and other learning materials necessary to improve your GRE© skills. We strongly recommend you view these files with a PC or a Pad rather than a Smart Phone because the phone’s screen is not large enough to see math equations and recordings of quantitative solutions.
Recordings of Quantitative Solutions: We also provide FREE access to streaming video recordings of solutions to all quantitative questions in the textbook as well as all quantitative questions in Powerprep tests. If the solution in the textbook is not clear, you can view a recording to help you “see” the solution step-by-step, and since the computer-based Powerprep practice tests do not provide explanations, our recorded solutions are particularly helpful. Recorded solutions are available to you 24/7 and “up to 15 days after the last class in your course”.
Guarantee: We are so confident in the success of our course that we guarantee you will achieve higher test scores. Participants who fulfill course requirements by attending all classes and completing assignments will get better scores but if you do not, you are welcome to attend the next GRE PREP course at NO ADDITIONAL COST.

Live Online and Recordings: If you are not able to commute to our physical classrooms in North Carolina, or if you believe you may have scheduling conflicts during a course, select the Online/Recordings option during registration and pay an additional $150 to add Live Online Webcasts and Recordings (or $100 for either Live Online or Recordings) to your Classroom registration. These options allow you to attend the physical classroom when you wish but also provide you with access to the Virtual Classroom (live over the internet as the class is taught) and all streaming video recordings of the course. Each class is broken into two recordings which may be accessed by 10 am the day following a class. Access to recordings is provided for up to 15 days after the last class.
Virtual Classroom via Live Online Webcast: Some of our courses are taught Live Online in a virtual classroom rather than in a physical classroom. Choose this option if you wish to avoid commuting to the physical classroom. This learning experience uses the same instructors and teaches the same content as our in-person classroom courses; you will hear and see everything that is taught in our normal classroom courses. The webcast is live, thus you may ask questions and interact with the faculty and students just as if you were in a classroom setting. Since we do not offer this course in a physical classroom, the $100 fee to access Live Online is included in the registration fee. If however you wish to add access to Recordings of these classes, please add the $100 option for Recordings to your registration. Access to streaming video recordings of the course are provided by 10 am the day following each class. Access to recordings is provided for up to 15 days after the last class
