Well, I’m happy to say that my answer to this question is now a resounding, YES! The long awaited introduction of ETS POWERPREP software for Mac users is here! As of July 2013, ETS offers a Mac-compatible version of their terrific practice test software. Mac-loving students will no longer have to worry about borrowing their roommate’s cousin’s boyfriend’s PC to take their practice GRE.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the software, POWERPREP is free practice exam available directly from ETS, the administrators of the GRE. POWERPREP is an excellent resource, one that we recommend all of our students use. The software includes two computer-based tests, sample Analytical Writing topics, scored sample essays and reader commentary, test-taking strategies, a math review, and test tutorials. We recommend that students save at least one POWERPEP II test until fairly close to their real exam to get a nearly exact practice run of what will happen on test day.
So, rejoice, Mac-users, POWERPREP for Mac is now available.
