The GRE General Exam is required by many graduate and business schools world wide. This exam measures essential reasoning skills that are acquired over a long period of time rather than measuring any specific field of study. The exam measures skills in the areas of verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing. The GRE is offered year-round at the Prometric Testing Center located at the HEC in downtown Medford.
