SUNY Oswego Metro Center to offer GMAT Cram Courses

The SUNY Oswego Metro Center in downtown Syracuse will offer a pair of GMAT Cram Courses in February to help aspirants for business schools prepare for the entrance exam.

“The first step to enrolling in an MBA program is preparing for the GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test), a requirement of many leading business schools, including SUNY Oswego,” said Tammie Sullivan, director of the college’s MBA program. “GMAT scores are used as a predictor of success, and scoring well on them will determine which schools will accept a student.”

The GMAT consists of three main sections: verbal, math, and analytical and writing skills. The SUNY Oswego Metro Center will offer Cram Courses in verbal and math.

The verbal session will take place 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. consecutive Saturdays, Feb. 5 and 12. The math session will run 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays, Feb. 19 and 26. Both will be at the SUNY Oswego Metro Center in the Atrium on Clinton Square.

The Cram Courses, designed to enhance preparedness and test-taking abilities, will provide a total of 20 instructional hours covering reading comprehension, critical reasoning, sentence correction, problem solving, data sufficiency and a comprehensive review of GMAT-required mathematical concepts. Instructors will offer students an opportunity to practice GMAT test-taking by using questions from previous tests.

Each course is $175; a student may attend both for $325. Additional discounts are offered to SUNY Oswego students and alumni. All course materials are included in the registration fee.

SUNY Oswego will offer GMAT Cram Courses each semester, on schedules to be announced.
