MSU Test Prep Consortium
The MSU Test Prep Consortium is a collaboration of on-campus units offering resources free of charge to MSU students preparing for national standardized exams (such as graduate and professional school entrance exams.)
The focus of the MSU Test Prep Consortium is:
- to provide a wide variety of self-help study materials in multiple formats.
- to offer general reading, writing and math skills support to students preparing to take graduate/professional school entrance exams.
- to help students understand the nature and purpose of the exams, and also teach them how to perform a truly helpful "self diagnosis" prior to any test.
- to teach students how to "reduce or eliminate the unknowns" in any testing situation.
- to advertise and maintain a campus wide system of support, service and information in the area of test preparation.
The MSU Test Prep Consortium is founded on the belief that the university resources already available to our students are among the most beneficial tools a student can use to prepare of national standardized tests. Appropriate preparation can and should extend far beyond the test itself, and continue to prove beneficial throughout continuing education and professional endeavors. University students should not need to pay outside agencies to help them prepare for qualifying exams required for further university study, as this is part of the role of undergraduate education itself.
The MSU Test Prep Consortium is not a new service, but rather a partnership utilizing existing resources. Our intent is to share expertise, reduce redundancy, and open communication within the university community.
