Why Free?

Free education is all around us, from millions of how-to videos on YouTube to huge free education sites like Khan Academy, edX, and Coursera.

We’re pleased to join the ever-growing group of free education providers for many reasons, but our biggest reason is that we’re proud of our course. Each video lesson (over 500 videos altogether) was carefully scripted, illustrated and recorded to maximize learning and retention. We think it’s one of the best GRE prep courses available, and we’re delighted to share it with everyone at no cost.

To help you get the most out of our free course, we also created a free, comprehensive Study Guide that acts as your personal roadmap to GRE success.
