GRE Workshops

Do you still need to take the GRE?

The Office of Graduate Studies provides students with a list of GRE resources and collaborates with Princeton Review to organize one FREE Virtual GRE workshop for CSUN students. The workshop is scheduled for 1 hour and 30 minutes.

If you have any questions, please call the Graduate Studies Office at (818) 677-2138.

GRE Resources

The best way to begin preparation for the GRE is to take a practice test to gain a better understanding of your areas for growth. 

  • ETS offers two free practice exams that simulate the actual test environment via their POWERPREP Online
  • In addition, all test-takers benefit from working on their vocabulary for the GRE. There are many free apps available that act as digital flashcards focused on GRE vocabulary. While the GRAD Center does not endorse any particular app, one example would be Magoosh. 
  • Another opportunity that works for busy students is to try podcasts that purposely use GRE words in context (one example is GRE Vocab).
  • Some students can become overwhelmed by apps and web resources; We encourage those students to visit the University Library to find GRE books on general and subject exams (search "GRE" in OneSearch). 
  • Test preparation programs tend to be very expensive; students who receive the Fee Reduction for the GRE also qualify for free test preparation through ETS. Apply for the Fee Reduction now to gain access to these resources!
