Fall GRE workshop to be held at MSU-Meridian
A daylong workshop on the Graduate Record Examination, known as the GRE, will be held Saturday [Oct 27] at Mississippi State University-Meridian.
Taking place 8 a.m.-3:45 p.m. on the College Park campus, the workshop is sponsored by the campus Psychology Club.
October 24 is the registration deadline, with a registration fee of $45 for MSU students and $65 for all others. The fee covers a study guide and related workshop materials, as well as lunch.
The GRE is used by many higher education graduate programs for admission purposes, as well as determining grant fellowships or financial aid.
According to Rodney Wilson, the workshop is designed to familiarize students with the exam’s three major domains and share test-taking strategies.
Wilson, an assistant professor of psychology at MSU-Meridian, is the workshop’s coordinator.
“As with any standardized test of this magnitude, stress management plays an important role,” he said. “Understanding overall test organization, scoring, and day of testing procedures serves to help reduce stress and aid students in performing to the best of their ability.”
Workshop presenter Lin Ge will cover the quantitative portion, while James Kelley will lead discussions on the verbal and writing portions. Ge is an assistant professor of math/statistics; Kelley, an associate professor of English.
