WTAMU’s Graduate School will be offering a course to prepare for the GMAT exam.
Dr. Robin Capt, associate dean and assistant professor of the graduate school and research, said that this GMAT prep course will prepare students properly and provide a better understanding of the exam.
“The purpose of this course is to improve students’ performance on the GMAT by teaching essential skills and reducing test anxiety through practice testing,” said Robin.
The course will run for six weeks, providing students the opportunity to work on test-taking skills as well as pertinent material covered in the GMAT exam.The GMAT is required for acceptance into business and management masters programs offered at most universities.
The course costs $200 and will cover the “GMAT Prep Book,” as well as the classes. Each class will cover different material and will be split into two categories: verbal sections and math sections.
The verbal sections will be the first three classes in the course. They will pertain to reading, sentence structure, critical thinking and writing. The math sections will be covered in the final three classes and will cover test-taking strategies, problem solving, critical thinking and math review.
History major Matthew Jellison said he feels if WT was to offer other courses to prepare for other graduate school required exams, there could be much interest in the program.
“If there is a program that would help me advance for a reasonable price, it would be something I would be more than willing to do,” Jellison said.
