Graduate Record Examination (GRE) Preparation Workshop

When: May 10-12, 2021

Workshop cost: FREE

The Office of Student Success Programs (SSP) will offer assistance to students who are preparing to take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE).  This intensive, small-group, virtual seminar will be designed to help test-takers brush up on their test taking skills, review materials for the verbal and quantitative sections of the exam, and practice by taking full length practice tests. You do not have to be an SSP participant or University of Memphis student to participate.  The seminar is free for all attendees, however, space is limited.  To ensure maximum effectiveness participants should make plans to attend each virtual session.


  • The first session will be held on Monday, May 10th (8:30-12:30 p.m.) with a general overview, structure, and components of the exam itself, and general test taking strategies.  This will be followed by a full-length practice test.
  • Tuesday, May 11th will be a full day (8:30-4:30 p.m.), consisting of review and practice for the verbal and quantitative sections.
  • The final session on Wednesday, May 12th (8:30-12:30 p.m.) will focus on quantitative reasoning and an in-depth introduction to analytical writing.  This final session will conclude with a final GRE practice examination.  An optional Analytical Writing practice will be held from 1-2:00 p.m.

Important note to test-takers:

Individuals can take the GRE general test (computer and paper-based) only once every 21 days, and no more than five times within any continuous rolling 12 month period (365 days).  This applies even if the test taker canceled his or her scores on a test taken previously.  Individuals who take the paper-based GRE test can take the tests as often as they are offered.
