Ramapo College is affiliated with the Center for Legal Studies (CLS) to offer online test preparation at a very affordable price. CLS is an educational provider with decades of experience in the delivery of online coursework.

A Message from CLS

Founded in 1980, The Center for Legal Studies specializes in education for the legal profession, yet has expanded educational offerings in conjunction with over 1000 colleges and universities nationwide on live lecture, online, DVD, and text-only formats. The curriculum and online training format created by CLS were recently awarded top honors by Thomson West Publishing International.


Sessions begin six times per year!

Most MBA programs across the country and internationally require a Graduate Management Admission Test score for program admission. The CLS online format combines the convenience of independent study with the camaraderie of a classroom environment.

The online course is divided into two separate courses, one to prepare you for the verbal sections of the GMAT and one to prepare you for the quantitative sections. Taking both online courses provides you with test-taking techniques and methods for improving your score on all sections of the GMAT. Each is 7 weeks and you can take both courses simultaneously or in separate sessions. The quantitative section of the course features a math review and techniques for tackling the problem solving and data sufficiency questions that make up the math section of the GMAT.

The verbal section of the course covers all question types on the verbal sections of the GMAT. You will learn how to do your best on reading comprehension, sentence corrections, critical reasoning questions, and the analytical writing assessment.

And, you will practice on actual GMAT tests from previous years, and specific time saving techniques will be covered for the computer administrations of the test.

Why this program?

Affordability and Convenience: This online program is designed to be an affordable and convenient alternative for students who are not interested in committing to a structured in-person test prep program.


$150 for the verbal and $150 for the quantitative sections.
