The Good

On-site, online, and on-demand courses

On-site and live online prep courses include 24 hours of live instruction, in addition to 184 hours of online video lessons, drills, and other course content. On-site courses are available in cities across 25 states, while live online courses are available to students around the world. The Princeton Review on-demand, self-paced course provides full access to the 184 hours of online content made available to live-course students. As a self-paced student, you only miss out on the live instruction component of the standard GRE prep course.

Abundant practice tests and study resources

As a Princeton Review student, you get access to eight full-length practice tests with follow-up diagnostic reports to help you identify your main areas of weakness and to track your progress through the length of the course. If you’re a student in an on-site or live online course, you also get the chance to review practice test results one-on-one with your instructor, a great opportunity to get to the bottom of your biggest GRE challenges. In addition to the practice tests, you also get access to a variety of online resources, including content drilling tools and a full on-demand video archive of the Princeton Review GRE prep course.

Flexible tutoring options

Princeton Review tutors are available online and in cities across the country. Choose a comprehensive, 18-hour tutoring package if you’re interested in covering all aspects of the GRE test. This package can serve as a replacement for a standard course or as a complement to a standard course, depending on your personal study needs. If you want more flexibility in how much tutoring time you use, the pay-as-you-go tutoring plan is just what you need. This plan requires a minimum commitment of only three hours. Add additional hours whenever you feel you need the extra help.

Full satisfaction guarantee

As a Princeton Review on-site or online student, you are entitled to repeat your course for any reason at no extra charge. If you don’t feel fully prepared after your first course attempt, re-enroll immediately. If you take the GRE after completing a course and you’re unhappy with your score, re-enroll in your course to get more training for free. In order to take advantage of this guarantee, you must attend all course sessions, complete all homework assignments, and finish all assigned practice tests during your initial course attempt. To exercise your right to a free course, you must take advantage of the opportunity within certain time limits.

The Bad

Missing a forum

Other top companies in the industry provide access to a forum where students can get answers to any questions they don’t understand. This isn’t a core component of a GRE test prep course, but it would be nice to see one of these added for those who want it. However, with The Princeton Review’s extensive number of online practice questions and your instructor just a phone call or email away, this shouldn’t be a huge concern.
