All sections are taught by Christopher Dyer, M.B.A. Dyer 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. In addition to teaching test preparation classes, Christopher coaches and mentors teams of seasonal employees at L.L.Bean
