Course GOALS

Graduate School Entrance Exam Test Preparation


AEI offers the following Test Preparation courses for those who are preparing to enter colleges or graduate programs in the United States. This twenty-two-hour per week academic program includes classroom instruction as well as instructor guided and evaluated mandatory lab work projects and assignments.


All of our students in the Test Preparation program are non-native speakers. This means, especially for graduate tests, that in addition to primarily teaching test skills and knowledge, in many cases it is desirable and best to review, strengthen, and further develop test-related foundational English language and associated thinking skills. In addition, basic English-language test-related concepts and vocabulary that are assumed for the native speaker often cannot be for the non-native speaker.


Students must separately apply to the Test Preparation Program with the following prerequisites:

       ·      Successful completion of all seven levels of AEI Intensive English Program, OR

       ·      Score higher than level seven on AEI’s placement test, OR

       ·      Passed professional licensing exams in English, AND

       ·      Student must plan to take the test(s) associated with the course s to which they are applying and matriculate into a school which requires such test (s), etc.


All Test Preparation courses are progressive with specific learning outcomes. Specifically, our program consists of the following courses:

 

GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test):

A more advanced English proficiency test required by many colleges before taking advanced, graduate-level courses. This focuses on the test itself as well as test-taking skills and understanding, in particular: Sentence Correction, Reading Comprehension, Critical Reasoning, Analytical Writing, and Integrated Reasoning.

This is the first of two GMAT preparation courses developed to prepare the student for success on the Verbal Section of the GMAT exam. The course stresses the mastery of principles required in order to learn the skills necessary for successes, including Reading Comprehension, Analysis on an Argument Essay Writing, recognition of the proper grammatical requirements for Sentence Correction, and the basics of Integrated Reasoning.

o   GMAT Verbal II
The second GMAT Verbal course involves extensive use of and practice with the principles taught in GMAT Verbal I. These include ample Writing practice under the time conditions of various parts of the writing portions of the test, applying test strategies for Reading Comprehension, and answering actual GMAT Verbal type questions relating to Sentence Correction. The course will also instruct the student on the required skills needed to answer any type question on the Integrated Reasoning part of the GMAT test. The student will also take several GMAT Verbal practice tests for diagnosis of progress and improvement of scores on the actual test.

The student will also have the opportunity to take several GMAT Math practice tests for diagnosis of progress and improvement of scores on the actual test.

 

GRE (Graduate Record Exam):

Similar to the GMAT, this is an alternate exam required by some universities and colleges for entrance into their advanced education programs.
