Kaplan provides a simulated computer test with online "flash feedback analysis" for both the GRE's and GMATs. The strategies for taking a computerized test are much different than for the paper and pencil tests - i.e you cannot go back and answer a question as you can for the paper test. Kaplan has produced an eight-minute video offering advice and their services which can be found on the Career Center Sunporch.

Note: Students should not take the GRE twice - don't think you can take one for practice - most schools average the two scores, rather than taking the higher score as proof of ability
