WHAT'S ON THIS DISK
The material in this program has been designed to prepare you for the Computer
Adaptive Graduate Record Examination. It is divided into the
following sections:
GRE CAT TUTORIAL
This section is intended to let you get accustomed to the contents of the
Official GRE Tutorial. All test-takers must go through the Official
Tutorial prior to taking the actual GRE Computer Adaptive Test. To help
you avoid unwelcome surprises, Cambridge has provided a summary of that
tutorial here.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
DIAGNOSTIC EXAM
In preparing for a test like the GRE Computer Adaptive Test, it is important
for you to understand your strengths and weaknesses. The diagnostic sections
are fixed-length samples of the GRE. Your score will determine the areas
where you need the most improvement.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
GRE ANALYTICAL WRITING SKILL BUILDER
This section allows you to practice writing essays for the GRE with a program
like the one you will use when you take your actual test.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
GRE UNTIMED PRACTICE TEST
The GRE Study Mode consists of full-length Verbal and Quantitative GRE
sections. These untimed sections contain a fixed set of questions arranged
in an ascending order of difficulty. The Study Mode section should be used
before you have completed your GRE Computer Adaptive exercises. You should
practice your new test-taking strategies before taking the timed adaptive
tests with the pressure of a ticking clock.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
GRE COMPUTER ADAPTIVE PRACTICE TEST
This section is the most important of all. Its a chance for you to practice
taking a timed, adaptive GRE exam. You will get a chance to answer questions
just like those found on the real GRE Computer Adaptive Test. You will
practice strategies for getting those questions right and grow accustomed to
the challenges of a test that adapts to your ability level as you are taking
it. The questions here are drawn from a pool of over 1,000 questions so it
can be taken several times before questions repeat.
