How to Prepare for GRE?
- Select a proper study material:
Study materials are abundantly available both online & offline that makes the candidates confused. Instead of trying everything, stick to one book or resource. Start with basics, and once you get a hang of them, then move to advanced materials.
- Make a proper study plan:
Your study plan should be based on the time left for your GRE test including, your current preparation level and how much you want to score. As you prepare a plan, you are confident of your progress and feel charged to complete the course.
- Focus on Quantitative Analysis:
Quantitative Analysis is different from Maths. It requires reasoning ability as the questions are based mainly on simple logic with a twist. Solving them with concepts and procedures is both confusing and time-consuming. An efficient approach would be figuring out a pattern and creating a plan to solve them.
- Know the situational application words:
Most of the students make a mistake wherein they try to learn a list of words in a small time frame. Though the words are important for the section of sentence completion, the whole point of the test is to evaluate the candidates’ vocabulary. So, even if you know the meaning of every word, it will be useless if you know its use. The quick way to learn the context is to use the Mnemonics technique.
