strudelle Posted October 31, 2013 Share Posted October 31, 2013 I took the GRE two weeks ago and my verbal score ended up being in the 11th percentile. I am usually very good with language and argument analysis, so I genuinely don't know what went wrong. My writing score was a 4.5, which isn't great but it's 75th percentile - so clearly I have some sort of grasp on language. To prepare for the GRE the first time around, I used ETS's online materials and a Princeton Review prep book. During preparation, I would generally get most of the verbal questions right and my scores on practice tests for verbal were usually in the 160's - which I was happy with. I just registered to re-take the test in a month. I started going through my study materials again and found I am still getting all the verbal questions right. I think the study materials I'm using are not adequately preparing me for the actual test. Does anyone have any suggestions on study material that is more similar to what is on the test? Preferably something free, because I just had to spend another $180 on this test that I couldn't afford in the first place. Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
