The UW Women's Center offers a variety of Academic Success and Writing &
Communications classes each quarter. We regularly offer an affordable
*GRE Prep Series* and an additional *Math Refresher course for the GRE*,
as well as classes on writing for college, computer classes, and more.
Our classes are non-credit classes, and also fall under categories like
Fitness, Language, Health and Wellness, and Professional Development.
*Our next GRE Prep Series is beginning this Saturday*, and I am hoping
you can send the attached (and pasted below) announcement to your
students. I've also included a note about another Academic Success course.

The GRE Prep Course *and *Basic Math Refresher *are taught by Mark Wahl,
director of Mark Wahl Learning Services. Thousands of students have
taken this course and found the content extremely valuable in improving
their preparation for taking the GRE examination. His classes are
dynamic, humorous, and tap both the right and left brain for effective
test tactics. The GRE Prep Course coaches you for success on the
computer-adaptive GRE test format. Besides factual knowledge, you need a
strategic approach to outsmarting questions combined with a strong
performance attitude. Mark Wahl, who has empowered students for GRE
accomplishment for twenty years, hones math concepts, introduces
shortcut math strategies, shares subtle verbal tactics, and offers a way
to look like a sharp writer in the short time frame of the critical
writing section. Note: If you need specific improvement in math concepts
and skills, foundational math rebuilding is available through the Basic
Math Refresher course which follows (description below).
*Day 1: *Introduction to the computer testing format, ways to change
defeating test-taking attitudes, subtleties of test timing, recommended
print and web study resources, and an introduction to the GRE math
section, terminology and strategies.
*Day 2: *Effective strategies using a multitude of examples for a large
variety of math content in the math section’s three question formats.
The math areas include arithmetic, pre-algebra, algebra, geometry and
*Day 3: *Powerful ways to crack the four verbal formats of the verbal
section and the two rapid-composition tasks of the critical writing section.
*Note:* This course assumes basic math ability. If you feel you are not
prepared for the GRE Math section, please consider the Basic Math
Refresher Course described below.
*Test Registration:* Test dates fill up quickly in the summer fall and
December. Register early to assure yourself a place: call the Prometric
Testing at 1.800.GRE.CALL or go to the website at www.gre.org.
** The instructor generally recommends three to six weeks of study and
practice following the course, before taking the GRE test.*
*More on the Basic Math Refresher: *
*Has your math grown rusty? *Anxious about getting a good score on this
section of the GRE? Build a math foundation that dovetails with the GRE
Preparation Course. This power-packed refresher course rebuilds math
fundamentals of arithmetic and algebra so that you can work efficiently
with strategies developed in the GRE Prep Course.
*Note:* this class is NOT a GRE strategy class; it covers math skills
only and should be accompanied by the GRE Preparation Course.
