SUNY Oswego to offer GMAT, GRE prep courses

OSWEGO — SUNY Oswego will offer preparatory courses for the Graduate Management Admissions Test and the Graduate Record Examination on Saturdays beginning Sept. 7 at the college’s Metro Center in downtown Syracuse.

“The first step to enrolling in a graduate program is preparing for an entrance exam,” said Dan Bacich, SUNY Oswego’s trainer. “The scores from these tests are used as a predictor of success, and scoring well on them will influence which graduate programs and schools you may attend.”

Both “cram courses,” designed to enhance student preparedness and test-taking abilities, will cover test format and content, preparation and test-taking strategies, and face-to-face instruction with the opportunity to ask questions and receive individualized attention to help students improve skills in problem areas.

Students also will be given the opportunity to practice test-taking using actual GMAT questions from previous tests. All course materials are included in the registration fee.

The GMAT sessions will take place 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 7, 14 and 21 for mathematics, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 25, Oct. 5 and 12 for verbal.

The GRE sessions will take place 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 7 and 14 and 1 to 5 p.m. Sept. 21 for quantitative, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sept. 28 and Oct. 5 and 1 to 5 p.m. Oct. 12 for verbal/analytical writing.

The cost to attend any one three-day GMAT or GRE session is $175; registration for both sessions of either the GMAT or GRE cram courses cost a discounted rate of $325. SUNY Oswego students and alumni receive additional discount offers.

The cram courses are offered in the spring, summer and fall. To learn more or to register, visit or, or call the SUNY Oswego Metro Center, 2 Clinton Square, at 315-399-4100.
