If you are pursuing a graduate degree in the field of physics, you may be required to take the GRE Physics Subject Test, and possibly the standard GRE. You may also choose to take the exam even if it is not required to fortify your graduate school application. The GRE Subject Test in Physics determines your ability to apply fundamental physics principles that you learn during your undergraduate education. There are approximately 100 multiple-choice questions on the test, covering a significant amount of material. The sheer quantity of the material typically requires spending quite a bit of time on GRE Physics review. However, Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools provide free self-study help that can help you streamline your study sessions. Learn by Concept is a unique and comprehensive resource that can help you reinforce your physics knowledge in any of the topics covered by the test as you work toward exam day.
The key benefit of the Learn by Concept resource is its in-depth review of all of the topics that may be covered on the GRE Physics Subject Test. Learn by Concept is broken down into five main subjects, including electromagnetics, waves, and optics, mechanics, quantum mechanics and atomic physics, special relativity, and other special topics. There are several subcategories within each of those main topics as well. If you are seeking detailed information on quantum mechanics, for example, you can find review materials on content ranging from the fundamental concepts of quantum mechanics to specialized information related to square wells. This depth of content allows you to focus on the specific areas you need to reinforce your GRE Physics review.
The information in the Learn by Concept resource is presented as multiple-choice GRE Physics Subject Test example questions. After answering the question, you can check your response. The correct answer is provided along with a detailed explanation showing how the correct answer was obtained and describing why the correct answer is the best choice. Additionally, the multiple-choice answers are randomly shuffled and reassigned each time you revisit the content, providing a quality self-study experience. This also assists you in avoiding the pitfall of automatically memorizing the answer.
In addition to Learn by Concept, Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools include Flashcards, a Question of the Day, and Practice Tests, all specific to the content in the GRE Physics Subject Test. The online Flashcards allow for a quick, but focused, study session. The Question of the Day provides a daily review of free GRE Physics Subject Test study material to fit a little bit of study into even the busiest of days. Full-Length Practice Tests are an exceptional way to prepare for the GRE Physics Subject Test, as it simulates the actual test, while shorter topic-focused Practice Tests allow you to test yourself on specific concepts. Both kinds of Practice Tests include the same useful feedback at the end of your session. By utilizing all of these Learning Tools together, you can create a custom GRE Physics Subject Test study plan to assist you as you prepare for this challenging test.
