    5 study apps for grad school exam prep

    Preparing for the GMAT, LSAT or GRE is no easy feat. Prospective grad school students typically lead busy lives, and as a result, there’s often little time left for studying for any of these exams. Fortunately, mobile apps have been developed to help prepare students on the go. Whether it’s on the train on the way home from work or at a study session on location, exam prep can happen anywhere students happen to be. Here are some of the top apps that can help you practice for the big day.
