Princeton, N.J. (August 13, 2013) —

The GRE® program has expanded its official test preparation materials to include two new GRE® Success Starter videos designed to help prospective graduate and business school students do their best on test day.

"These videos are ideal for prospective test takers looking to jump-start their test preparation by familiarizing themselves with the Quantitative and Verbal Reasoning sections of the test," says Dawn Piacentino, Director of Communications and Services for the GRE Program at ETS. "In less than 20 minutes each, these videos walk test takers through examples of the different question types in the test, provide strategies for answering each question type, and share useful tips and strategies."

The two new videos, GRE® Success Starter: Tips & Strategies for the Quantitative Reasoning Section and GRE® Success Starter: Tips & Strategies for the Verbal Reasoning Section appearedon U.S. News.com as part of a free one-week world premiere sponsored by the GRE Program. The videos were also shared for free with fans on the GRE revised General Test page on Facebook®. Prospective test takers who missed the free showings can now download the videos at the ETS store for US$7 each.

To help students get ready for test day, ETS has developed a variety of official GRE test preparation materials in print, video and electronic formats. In addition, the new ScoreSelectSM option, available only with GRE tests, helps individuals approach test day with confidence because it allows them to put their best scores forward. With the ScoreSelectSM option, individuals can take a GRE test once or retake it again — and still send only the scores they want schools to see.
