GRE is a Graduate Record Examination which measures Quantitative as well as Verbal ability. The quantitative section of the GRE is comprised of arithmetic, logical problem solving and algebra questions. The difficulty level of GRE quant is on the same level that of junior high or early high school level, where it does not deal with advanced topics like trigonometry and calculus.
Cracking the GRE could be said as a different ball game. It is cracked with using smart learning strategies, taking constituent practice tests and perfecting the study habits. With AdmitAbroad’s 50 hours of quant coaching, acing the GRE would certainly be easier.
The key criterion that needs to be considered here is that student should get free of the math fear and tailor the study pattern to suit their weak areas and emphasis on their stronger points more.
Following criteria need to be considered for a perfect game of learning:
1. Practice each section of the quant with a number of target hours and then proceed to mock test-
That means dedicating X number of hours to every section, perfecting that and then moving ahead to next time, like from arithmetic to algebra. After that using section wise practice tests and then the GRE test would help.
2.Knowing that GRE Math and earlier math that you have studied is different-
It is possible to get nervous during the preparation and one might feel like referring the old books while prepping up. It would result in a good step if the student has had good experience while studying those books, however if those books have frightened you before, it is not a good step at this stage to fall into the same loop again. It is better to follow up on the current study material.
3. Learning techniques to solve the questions within given time-
It is important to keep in mind that GRE is a timed test and one needs to solve the question within the given time. Along with precision to solve the question, it is equally important to learn and practice how to solve the questions within the given time.
4. Section wise practice is required, rather than learning from scratch
Developing strategies for quant comparison section and multiple choice sections distinctively is important. Practicing according to those sections than keeping the focus on learning the math from scratch, would not be the best learning strategy at this stage.
