About Brainscape's GRE psychology practice

It’s not that psychology is a convoluted, labyrinthine subject to learn. Where the challenge presents itself is in the sheer number of terms, theories, people, facts, and concepts you need to learn. It’s a mountain of information and it can all be terribly overwhelming.

Enter Brainscape! Heroic trumpet fanfare Our adaptive learning platform leverages decades of cognitive science research to help you master these mountains of information so much quicker, more efficiently, and without the undesired side-effects of cognitive overload (like eye twitches and early mid-life crises).

Flashcards designed by psych experts

Created by a team of GRE Psychology experts who previously worked with Kaplan and The Princeton Review, and tested by students who recently scored really well on their own exams, GRE Psychology is the perfect supplementary study tool for seamless prep.

Also, being accessible via web or mobile app, the world of psychology learning is at your fingertips wherever you go, making daily study and review as easy as picking up your phone and tapping on the Brainscape app.
