Thinking about grad school? Then you’d better start thinking about the GRE — especially because it just got a lot harder! The Graduate Record Exam General Test (which underwent sweeping changes in summer 2011) is the most commonly required admissions test for postgraduate degree programs at American universities. Taken by more than 600,000 prospective graduate school applicants from approximately 230 countries each year, this challenging exam can be a pivotal event in your academic career. In fact, your score on this all-important test can make or break your chances of getting into the university of your dreams and earning that coveted master’s degree or doctorate.
As you know, reading speed and comprehension matter. Whether you’re at work, helping your children with their homework, or completing the SAT for college, your reading speed and comprehension will determine how successful you are. Reading is everywhere in our lives. Because of that, it’s important you can read effectively. For example, you might need to read and write reports for work. If you’re a student, you’ll need to read pages upon pages of dense text every night. If you’re a slow reader, that’s holding you back.
