Strategies to Prepare For GRE

Right study material

Selection of right study material is very important to save your money and efforts.  If you have joined a coaching center, then don’t stick to just one book. Go through multiple books that are used as a supplement to enhance the preparation. You can’t buy each, and every book so, you can use the internet and collect notes from the best online coaching. 

 Easy to Difficult

Firstly, start preparing the simple basic terms, which will help you to understand the concepts and once you are done with the basics level then start working on more advanced material. Remember, do not try to do everything at the same time, it will create a mess. Try to cover little topics, but with accuracy.

 Make a proper study plan

You should first analyze yourself before making any study plan. It should be made on your GRE preparation level and your target GRE score. Once you have got to know about your level, plan a time table, and stay motivated to beat that score.

Build up your vocabulary

In the Verbal Reasoning Section, vocabulary plays an important role in the forms of analogies, antonyms, etc. Try to absorb all the words which you came across reading newspapers, journals, and magazines. Sometimes while practicing mock test you may come across many words, so add them into your list too.

Mock test is a major part of GRE prep. After your preparation is done, try to do as many mock tests as you can. There are many paid and unpaid mock tests available on the internet. Through mock test focus on your weak sections and give more time to cover them.
