Princeton Review GRE Expert is Available to Comment on ETS Announcement that They Will Not Administer the Revised Graduate Record Examination (GRE) as Planned for Fall 2007

NEW YORK--(Collegiate Presswire - April 3, 2007) - The Educational Testing Service (ETS), the writers of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), announced Monday, April 2, that they have cancelled plans to launch the Revised Graduate Record Examination.

Princeton Review's GRE expert Jeffrey Meanza is available for interviews to add color to your stories or to put this announcement in perspective. You can arrange interviews by calling Harriet Brand at 212-874-8282 Ext. 1091, or at harrietb@review.com.

The Princeton Review confirms the announcement to cancel the Revised GRE is good news for students planning to apply for graduate school for the fall 2008 and beyond. Students can continue their preparation for graduate school without the pressure of the originally proposed test changes. The current GRE is easier, shorter and utilizes known question types. Students won't have to contend with the challenges of the proposed revised test structure, and can focus on securing their highest score and the additional components of a successful graduate application.

While The Princeton Review was prepared to introduce Revised GRE prep programs, which would have reflected the new test structure, the test preparation company will now continue to focus on its current GRE tutoring, small group tutoring, classroom and online programs.

John Katzman, CEO of The Princeton Review, said, "Finally, a test so bad that even ETS pulled the plug."
