This short course is comprised of 16 hours of knowledgeable instruction.
The GRE review is designed to familiarize the student with the various aspects of the Graduate Record Examination. This course presents an overview of the structure of the test and the format of the questions. The review focuses on successful techniques for both the Verbal and Quantitative sections of the exam. The Verbal review emphasizes strategies for answering the four types of questions--analogies, reading comprehension, antonyms, and sentence completion. A thorough mathematics review is presented emphasizing the rules and formulas needed from the areas of arithmetic, geometry and algebra. Additional practice in these areas is gained by applying these principles to both quantitative comparison and discrete quantitative types of questions that appear on the mathematics portion of the test.
The difference between the Fast Track Review Course and the 24-hour course is the time spent reviewing the previous week’s homework. Only a small amount of time is allotted to homework review in the short course, thus the student must refer to explanations provided by the book instead of the formal in-class discussion. Pre and post practice tests are cut from the schedule. Other than that the content is the same—just presented in a condensed format. The advantage of the 24-hour course over the short course is the amount of time spent on each topic, which allows for more discussion and in-class examples.

Verbal Reasoning-- The verbal section includes two new sentence completion types: sentence equivalence questions, for which test takers must identify two correct answers to receive credit; and text completion questions, some involving passages of several sentences and requiring test takers to fill in up to three blanks. Reading comprehension questions may now have more than one correct answer. Some reading questions will involve selecting individual sentences with passages.
Quantitative Reasoning-- This section contains standard multiple-choice questions, as well as quantitative comparison questions.
The Core Mathematical Concepts for Students is designed to familiarize you with the basic math concepts that are tested in the GRE, GMAT, ACT, and SAT. These exercises are designed to reacquaint you with concepts that you may not have seen for some time. These tutorials help you practice the different types of problems for each math concept, and the different ways each concept is used. There is also an answer key for you to use when you are done with each exercise so that you can check your answers.

The GMAT exam is required for the MBA programs and most business graduate schools. Non-business graduate schools usually require the GRE exam. Students are advised to consult with their school department to see which test scores are required.
Is the test included in the class?
Students will be given practice tests, quizzes, testing strategies, and homework assignments to prepare them for the exam. We do not administer the actual exam. The test must be arranged separately with a testing facility.
Do you offer a free practice exam?
We provide free practice exam links on each of our test preparation review pages. UCF Test Prep is not affiliated with these sites. These are references from the official testing organizations that administer each exam. We feel each will be beneficial in providing core concepts to students.
On the "Resources Tab" we have helpful tutorials to familiarize you with core mathematical concepts. These exercises are designed to explain concepts that you may have not seen for some time. There is an answer key to use with each exercise so you can check your answers.

Test Preparation Transfer and Refund Policy
All refund requests will be required to follow the Division of Continuing Education refund policy.
UCF Test Prep Administration will approve all transfer requests, and notify the student of the decision and any pertinent information.

The required UCF Test Prep Transfer Request Form must be completed and submitted for review.

1. Complete the transfer form: You, the student, must notify the Division of Continuing Education that you wish to transfer from the registered course. Download the transfer form from the UCF Test Prep website. This first step in the process is the most essential. We will consider your transfer request active on the day and time that we physically receive the signed form. Any transfer forms received outside of our regular business hours of Monday thru Friday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM will be considered “received” on our next regular business day.
2. Payment: There is a payment required for transferring to another course. A percentage of your registration fee is applied as a credit to the new transfer course. The credit is determined based on how much of the course is remaining, and not on how many classes that you have attended or missed.
We determine the remaining time for the course from the point in time we receive the transfer form, not from the time it is dated and signed. Only class times that meet after we receive the transfer form will count as remaining course time.
The credit is applied to the current registration fee of the course being transferred to, and any remaining balance will need to be paid by the student. There is also an additional transfer fee of $50.00 (fifty dollars) that is added to your registration fee. The $50.00 transfer fee is required to be paid regardless of how much the credit is.
Transfers for LSAT and MCAT/PCAT/OAT/DAT will be handled on a case-by-case basis, please contact our office at 407.882.TEST (8378).
No portion of your registration fee can be applied to another DCE program or transferred to another person.
UCF Test Prep will not refund textbook purchases, nor will we supply the textbook for the transfer course.
