UF Test Preparation Resources
UF Library Resources
The main UF library resource for GRE preparation is an online website offered through the Smathers Libraries, the Peterson's Test Prep resource (Note: to use this resource, you will need to either 1) Be on campus or 2) Be logged in with the VPN if you are off campus. (Instructions on downloading and installing the VPN can be found here.) To access this resource, begin at the UF Library home page, put your cursor over Find, then click Databases, then A-Z List of Databases, then P, then scroll down to Peterson's Test Prep. At this time you will also need to create an account with Peterson's in order to use this resource.
In addition, David Schwieder, the UF Political Science Librarian, offers general consulting on preparing for the GRE. A former test-preparation tutor, he can advise on preparation strategies and help you to choose an approach suitable for your needs. A short meeting can help you to devise a productive preparation plan for yourself. Send email.
Note: You should be judicious in choosing test preparation materials. It's not uncommon to acquire older test prep books or prep materials from friends or family members who took the test in the past. If you do so, you should make sure that any materials you wish to use are still up to date, wherever they are obtained from. You can verify this by checking the test administrator's web site.
