The Learning Center offers four ways to prepare for graduate school entrance exams.

1.  Take a class with The Princeton Review at a discount.

The Learning Center has partnered with The Princeton Review to provide exam prep courses at a 30% discount for UNC students. Classes are held right on campus or at Princeton’s Franklin Street office.  Princeton offers courses to fit a variety of schedules, as well as a number of free online practice tests.

2.  Join a FREE test prep study group

In addition to (or instead of) a Princeton Review course, you can also join a FREE Test Prep Study and Coaching Group.

The UNC Learning Center’s free Test Prep Study and Coaching Group is designed for all students preparing for any graduate school entrance exam. Tests include: GRE, MCAT, LSAT, GMAT, DAT and PCAT. Led by Marc Howlett , this collaborative group connects you with other students and campus resources. We utilize the UNC Learning Center academic coaching model to create a structured approach to exam preparation, set and meet goals, and promote accountability for our progress. Together we will practice skills and build confidence, keeping you on track right until test day.
