Publisher's Summary

Are you in the process of deciding whether to go to graduate school?

Are you going to take the GRE test, but you are really bad at testing? Or maybe you are having a nervous breakdown about it?

The Graduate Record Examination is held by the Educational Testing Service and is required for admission into graduate programs in universities in the United States of America…that's something you probably have heard about…

But have you heard that most programs don't even bother to look at your application if you have under a 300 on the GRE?!

Is there a really strategic way to prepare for it?

Treat the GRE like any other skill, initially less familiar, but a skill that can be sharpened over time.

Many believe that the GRE requires close to six months of intensive preparation. This is totally wrong! In this book, you'll see that the GRE is not a particularly difficult examination...

In this book you will get a thorough idea of what areas you need to cover; strategies, tips & tricks for all these areas, and the essential practice you need to succeed:

  • Know completely what GRE is and is not
  • How to register and attending the exam step-by-step
  • Verbal reasoning
  • Quantitative reasoning
  • Analytical writing
  • Problem solving
  • Data interpretation
  • Practice questions

horrible for audio.

couldn't follow most of the problems and answer choices with just the audio alone. better to just buy a book.

Difficult to follow

The book provided good strategies to break down the questions to find the best answer. However, when it came to the math protein it was difficult to follow a long. Perhaps if offered the sample questions in a pdf like some of the audiobooks, and I did look online to check it doesn't.

Affordable & Just what I needed!

I thought it wasn't thick enough or had enough information at first, THEN I got into it and it was perfect. It really is a great study guide at a very good price. I would totally recommend it.

Very easy to understand

Very informative. We are waiting for acceptances right now so this was exactly what I needed to explain the use of the Fafsa and not to be overwhelmed by it. Plus a lot of information applicable to many different income levels.

worth to listen

very helpful study tool for vocab words, especially if you have limited time. There were a few words that didn't have a sentence with the description, but overall this audiobook was pretty thorough.

Four Stars!!!!

The main book is the most helpful because it explains everything. Overall it is good because it is questions that are the most similar to what will be on the GRE, since it is made by the test makers. However it is best for practice but not so much for learning new materials. It is essential however so i would recommend buying at least the main book.

Best guidebook

There are practice questions and the answer key gives explanations and justifications for the correct answers. This study guide is put together well, and worth the money spent. This will definitely help you prepare for this high-stakes test!

Very detailed book.

However, it exactly points out what to be expected for GRE. Practice questions and answer explanations are very helpful as well. I think it's an inexpensive purchase and it worth it.

The book gave real value.

I am not saying this book is not going to assist you in the financial planning process if your student is in the latter stages of her high school career; it definitely will provide key strategies.

Nice Book!

I have few, if any, problems with the book. I notice several critics do and I am puzzled as to why. Bottom line, if you wait until your student is a junior or senior in high school, as I did, you are screwed. I would give this text 5 stars had I read it when my son was a toddler.

Very helpful!!

This is not helpful, and one of the primary aspects of the test on which I wanted to work was vocabulary, so I will have to find a different resource for that. (It wouldn't make sense to look up all the words: it is much more efficient just to spend the time memorizing them.)

More difficult than the test

This book had plenty of problems to practice on. They were quite challenging, but once I got to the test, I thought those questions weren't so bad. Moral of the story: this book prepared me for a much more difficult test so I scored much higher than I thought I would.
