Shsrad Seth said hs is going to integrate a nswly
purchased micro-computer to a mini-computer and
its peripheral devises already in the departrrtnt.
The system will be used in two courses in the fill
for computer science students and . electrical
engineering, physics and chemistry students.
The courses will deal with designing products
that use a micro-computer. These products include
micro-wave ovens, ignition control in cars and
computer games. ' ,
"In the long range, I am hoping to use the lab as
part of a joint lab with electrical engineers and
physics students. We're exploring the possibility
of sharing with departments, so that the micro
computer could be used as one facet of electrical
engineering and physics," Seth said.
There will be a change in the Graduate Record
Examination (GRE) Aptitude Test next fall, according to
Don Sutton, assistant director of the Career Planning and
Placement Center.
The revised GRE test , will include a section on
analytical skills, as well as sections on verbal and quantita
tive s!d"s.
The change was a result of research initiated by lha
strators, faculty members and students from schools
across the country. The study concluded that analytical
skills were related to academic success.
UNL was not involved in the change, said Frank
Hsl'rxen, placement director.
"We have nothing to do with the contents of the test,
we just give it," he said.
there have been no inquiries by UNL students con-
cernhg the chance, Sutton said. , ,
"They're probably not even aware of it," he t-id.
"There is little they can do about it, and there is no way
to study for this test."
Sutton said UNL was notified about the charge but he
did not know specifically what it would indside. .
"Strange as it sounds,' we never ess the contents of the
test," he slid.
Accord! to JTsnts So??!rv"4, GRE program director,
at the Educational Testing Service in Princsfcn, M. J., the
new taction will delude cusstions ccncernir.g the tr.ilysls

Not all UNL students planning to attend graduate
school take the GRE, Sutton said. Different cd!:2S
require different tests. Most of those takir.g the GRE at
UNL are in education or liberal arts.
