How To Prepare For GTS Exams

    How To Prepare For GTS Exams

The best way to preapare for GTS exams is to review and take those exams given previously. Our standard practice is to publish on the Internet the texts of all exams given in the past so that future test takers can have access to similar materials and know what to expect when they take our discipline-specific exams. This is done immediately after the exam is given. This way, future test takers will have a more concrete idea of what to expect in terms of structure, questions, level of difficulty, and reasoning. However, as with most college entrance examinations, such as the SAT, ACT, TOEFL, or GRE, there is really no quick or simple way to prepare for such a test, whether it be GTS or some other exam. Still, candidates are advised to read as many books, magazines, scholarly publications, and academic journals as possible in their respective fields a few months prior to the exam, especially about recent issues of global interest. To access the full texts, questions, and answers of past exams, please visit the following GTS page.
