The GRE could seem like quite the monster if you don’t prepare the right way to tame it! Here are a few pointers on how to get the best out of your GRE test.

  • The GRE has recently changed its complete appearance and score format, and it’s vital that you are familiar with the new face of the GRE.  This is the first step that you must take.
  • The national GRE content director was quoted in the Princeton Review,  “To walk into this test unprepared, to sit down [and take it] having never done it before is suicide."The more practice tests you take, the better are your chances of scoring higher on your GRE tests. You would be in good shape if you have taken as many mock tests as you possibly can before D-day.
  • Make sure you remember the time slot for each section and are well aware of the change in timings for the new revised GRE test. 
  • Browse and explore the best study guides possible for the test and ensure you acquire these materials to prepare well. The best method to prepare for the GRE is by having a mix of numerous sources to study from. 
  • Familiarise yourself with all sorts of question formats of the GRE.  Ensure you take the time to understand the different kinds of questions that may appear in all of its sections. 
  • For the math section of GRE, you can up the fun factor by using various puzzles and games while developing your math skills.  GRE vocabulary can be quite difficult to take in all at once, so students can come up with various methods to memorise GRE vocabulary such as flash cards, or various other techniques. 
  • You should definitely consider taking up a GRE prep course, as no matter how much cramming you do, tutoring classes will also pay off and prove to be a worthwhile investment. GRE tutoring may help you develop critical thinking that is required to answer the questions.
  • Taking up the GRE while you’re still enrolled in College could work out in your advantage as you would not need to brush up on your skills or refresh any concepts especially in mathematics. 
These are just a few ways to get you started on a positive note, take your time and come up with the best methods that would work best for you.
