Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I have some questions:

1.How many practice tets one should take before the actual GRE?

2. Which practice tests did you take and how did those helped you?

3. Any tips and tricks for practice tests?

4.Is there any other practice test other than powerprep or barron one can take that can simulate actual GRE?Is there any book or site just full of practice tests?

Thank you for your help in advance

1. I think I ended up taking 5-6. That might have been a lot, but it really depends on the individual. I still didn't do very well.

2. I took a few I received once I signed up for the GRE and then others from a class I took. It just helped get a feel for what I was in for.

3. Make sure you have uninterupted time.

4. I used Kaplan.

1. Depends on how you study. I took tons--something like 12--because I knew from prior test-taking experience that for me, practice tests really help me get a solid score. I'd say to take at least three--one before you start studying, one in the middle of your study program, and one about a month before you take the test so you know what last areas you need to brush up on. Then again, even that depends on how much time you have.

2. Kaplan, PowerPrep, Princeton Review, Barron's.

3. Take them in as close to a simulated environment as you can--on the computer, in dead silence. This was my big problem: I think I could have done a bit better if I'd practiced like this, but since I don''t have a PC, I took my computerized test at a friend's house.

1. Depends on the person. I took about 5-6 tests and it was enough for me.

2. I took the ones you get when you sign up for the test and the ones on the Kaplan CD I got when I bought the book. I got similar scores on all of the tests but I think the Powerprep ones are best b/c they use the same software as the actual test and old questions from it, so the practice you get is the closest to the 'real thing'.

3. After you're done with the test go over all of the questions - both those you got right and those you got wrong - and make sure you understand the solutions. Try solving again problems you had difficulties with, this time without the time pressure, to make sure that if you encounter a similar question on the next test - you'll know the solution strategy.
