Scoring well on the GRE is as much about adequate preparation as it is about your innate level of ability.

  • Geometry
  • Data Analysis

Christopher Dyer M.B.A first became interested in the mechanisms of adaptive testing after taking the GMAT CAT for the first time and knowing that he could do better. By studying the test itself, he was able to re-test and dramatically improve his score. Using what he learned from his own preparation, Christopher has been helping USM students prepare for standardized tests like the GMAT CAT and the GRE since 2003.
