Preparing for Standardized Grad Tests
Are you thinking about taking classes to earn your online MBA or other graduate degree? Worried about standardized testing as a means to being accepted?
Because online graduate programs are typically geared toward adult professionals, many online schools are abandoning the GMAT and GRE as measures of academic preparedness, according to GetEducated.com.
Rather, career experience is seen as a better indicator of success in the business world.
The Standardized Tests
Graduate Record Exam (GRE) —The GRE is the most common standardized test used for graduate school admission and is a general tool used to measure readiness for graduate-level work. The test is produced by the Educational Testing Service, the same group that produces the SAT for high school students.

Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) —The GMAT is given primarily to students entering master-level business programs. Preparation for the GMAT, produced by the Graduate Admissions Council, should begin three to six months before you are to take it.

Miller Analogies Test (MAT) — The MAT is a high-level mental ability test requiring the solution of problems stated as analogies, and pperformance on the MAT is designed to reflect candidates’ analytical thinking.
