GMAT/GRE Preparation

The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is the most widely used assessment for graduate management admissions. Visit the GMAT Guide to learn about the structure of the GMAT test and useful tips to help prepare.

The GRE may also be taken as a substitute of the GMAT exam, however, we prefer you take the GMAT. The GRE is more focused on writing instead of the analytical reasoning. Visit the official GRE website to learn about the structure of the exam.
