ERIC Test Preparation Resources

At a minimum, test preparation helps a student become familiar with the types of questions on a test. In many cases, test preparation is essentially concentrated study. I believe many large test preparation companies are successful for many students simply because they impose rigor and discipline. If one is able to provide their own rigor and discipline, then a good test preparation guide many prove helpful. In recent years, more interactive products have become available. When I went back to school at age 44, I bought both a CD-ROM and a guide. I never installed the CD, I did study the book and take practice tests and received a score in the 97th percentile on the GMAT. - Lawrence Rudner, Ph.D., MBA, Director, ERIC Clearinghouse on Assessment and Evaluation.
