Barron's and Snapwiz Partner to Launch Online Test Preparation Courses With Adaptive Learning Technology

Barron's Educational Series, Inc., the leading publisher of test prep books, today announced a partnership with Snapwiz Inc. to create online courses. The courses will be powered by Snapwiz's patent pending adaptive test prep platform.


Barron's GRE, the first course to be offered by Barron's using the Snapwiz platform, is now available at and in the Apple iTunes store. The course is available now, for a limited time only, for $69 USD.
The personalized GMAT course will become available in January 2012.

Under the partnership, Barron's will launch a series of personalized test prep programs with engaging videos, animations, games, and other learning aids.
