Option 1: On-Campus, Saturday, October 6th at 10AM at Texas A&M University


 Option 2: Anywhere! Find the perfect date and time at www.kaptest.com/practice

Kaplan is holding a FREE Practice Test for the GRE, GMAT, LSAT, MCAT, DAT, OAT, or PCAT.  This semester we’re making the event more convenient than ever with two great options.  Our on site, campus event at Texas A&M University is taking place on Saturday, October 6th at 10AM at the Texas A&M Vet School. To register for this free event, fill out the following web form: bit.ly/tamufall2012. Before the event, we will send you an email confirming your registration and providing you with instructions for checking in on Saturday morning.

 Would you rather take the test from home, the library, a coffee shop, or even an open computer lab on campus? Then take your practice test live and online in our Classroom Anywhere environment, available from anywhere you have internet access.

As space is limited, this event does require pre-registration. However, a number of seats have been reserved for Texas A&M University students.  To register for this free event, fill out the following web form: bit.ly/tamufall2012.  Once registered, you will receive unique log-in information that you will use to enter Kaplan’s state-of-the-art, online classroom and begin the exam.

Each test will last up to 4 hours and will be proctored like an actual exam. Immediately following the exam, you will be able to receive your score report, with full comprehensive feedback on your individual performance, on a web-enabled mobile device (smartphone or tablet).  One of our expert instructors will provide a short overview on how to interpret your score report, followed by an optional workshop on test-taking strategies.  Kaplan staff will be available throughout the day to answer any questions you may have.
This is a great opportunity for you to see how you might score on the real thing, and also to become familiar with the kinds of questions that will be on the real test. For most students, this exam will be a more realistic test-taking experience as you can practice in the format that mirrors most graduate school exams.

For additional information, visit us at www.kaptest.com/practice or call one of Kaplan’s test experts at 1-800-KAP-TEST.
This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in going to business, grad, law, med, dental, optometry, or pharmacy school in the next few years!
