## How to Study for the Writing Section of the GRE

October 22, 2012

Writing sections of standardized tests are perhaps the most difficult to prepare for, only because you never know exactly what you are going to be asked. Granted, you don’t know specifically what math problems or English questions you’ll have to answer either, but at least you can study the basic concepts. When it comes to writing an essay, you can only prepare so much – but there are ways to prepare, and it all begins with getting an understanding of what type of writing test you are facing. On the GRE, the writing section is formally referred to as the Analytical Writing section. As you could easily assume, this is because...

## How to Study for the Quantitative Reasoning Section of the GRE

October 21, 2012

When you first begin preparing for this portion of the exam, the seemingly endless variety in math problems may overwhelm you.

## How to Study for the Verbal Reasoning Section of the GRE

October 20, 2012

The Verbal section of the GRE is actually quite simple in terms of what to expect. When you first take a look at a set of practice questions, you’ll most likely be reminded of elementary school English tests because of the high volume of fill-in-the-blanks. Yes, a big part of the section is choosing which words will fill in the blanks of sentences most logically. Sounds easy, but it actually requires more preparation than you’d think. The reason for this is that the options of words given to you are not going to be every-day vocabulary. Most of them won’t even be close to every-day vocabulary. This section is going to throw ...

## How to Prepare for the GRE

October 09, 2012

One of the many pressures of attempting to get into grad school is scoring well on the GRE.  A very quirky test, it can be quite intimidating when you first start reading up on it, but the structure is actually quite simple.  There are six sections total, but only three broad skill areas that will be covered – analytical writing, verbal reasoning, and quantitative reasoning.  Now, it should not be underestimated how broad these areas really are.  In studying for this exam, you will need to go back and re-learn a ton of information you may or may not have looked at since high school.  But what makes the structure ...

## How To Prepare For GRE Subject Tests

January 08, 2012

The sooner you figure out exactly what it is you want to do, the better. Then, you can start marketing yourself as a budding chemist (for example). And that is exactly how to perk up a grad school admissions counselor. Graduate schools don’t want students who are still trying to figure out what they want to do. They want students who are set on a field, and are now doing everything they can to get there. There’s one simple way to show you’re one of those students: take a GRE subject test. A GRE subject test measures your knowledge/analytical thinking skills in a specific field and is much more specialized than the standard... Read More About How To Prepare For GRE Subject Tests
