Entrance Exams

Standardized tests are an important part of your application to professional schools. Strong scores can greatly enhance the success of your application, so the sooner you begin to prepare, and the more familiar you are with the material and the test format, the better your chances are of reaching your full potential.

Visit the links below for details about individual standardized tests. You'll find background information, fees, schedules, on-line test registration, sample questions, forms, and performance data. If you are interested in taking a standardized test preparatory course, look into what Kaplan, The Princeton Review, and Examkrackers have to offer for a fee.  While these companies provide a service of value, the most important factor in preparing for a standardized test is the amount of time an applicant spends preparing for it.  It is worth noting that disciplined CMU students often do not need a test prep service and that some of our best test scores have been eanrned by people who prepared without the aid of a prep service.

In addition, free information regarding content of a test can be found at Khan Academy.  Information regarding managing test anxiety can be found at CMU's Academic Development.
