GRE Study Guide for Preparation

Every GRE test-taker dreams of a great score and that is quite attainable by means of thorough and consistent preparation. In the case of most computer-based tests, the test-taker is advised to practice on simulated mock tests which will not only have the relevant questions but also give an actual feel of the test. However, there is a slight difference when it comes to a GRE test taker.

The GRE test taker can warm up on the question types by using the printed test-prep materials, reference books and guides. It is important to get a hang of the question types as there are different types of questions at different levels of difficulty, which are quite unfamiliar to several test takers. When you know the questions types as well as answering strategies, you can confidently take on the simulative practice tests on the computer.

We, at Manya-The Princeton Review understand the test-prep requirement for a GRE test taker and hence provide all-inclusive support. With our unmatched support, you will gain access to relevant preparation material, both printed and online (web-based). The reference material includes:
