​GRE doesn't test your just VR, QR & AW but it also tests your endurance!

​Are you planning to go to GRE and preparing for GRE all by yourself in just one or two months?​

​And still ​wondering how you will manage all by yourself?​​​​​

Don't worry; we are here to help you, to prepare for your GRE!​

How to plan your Preparation for GRE Exam?

How to plan your Preparation for GRE Exam

​​​​GRE exam is basically divided in to 3 parts:

  1. ​Verbal Reasoning
  2. Quantitative Reasoning and
  3. Analytical Writing.

​Now, if we sum up the GRE, then it's primary Maths & English. So, all you have to determine is that your weakness because you don't want to waste your ​precious time on the things you already know.

Now, we have to make some actual real plans which we can follow to prepare for GRE! ​Now, don't make a plan like you will prepare for GRE for at least 2/3 hours a day because we know that it isn't going to happen!

Make some realistic plans like you will prepare for 1 hour a day and decide which 1 hour of your day you want to dedicate your GRE preparation!

So, let's discuss about ​each part individually, shall we?

Verbal Reasoning:

​Some of the ​​​reading comprehension is so long over 6/7 paragraphs and it's important for you to stay focused ​on the content while reading these passages.

Never assume anything in RCs, they aren't asking for your opinion no matter how logical your opinion is, don't apply it there. Everything you need will be found in the paragraph.

​​Now, next part is filling the blanks with appropriate words. Now, this is tricky and if you have mugged up few word's and you don't know how to put them into the context then trust me, you have wasted your time!

When you are trying to improve your vocabulary, practice that word and make some practice sentences, like how to use this word, make 5/6 sentences about the same word and it will improve your vocabulary, you don't need to mug up the words! Because you will see similar options in the questions!​​​​​

To improve your vocabulary refer these books: GRE Books and Magoosh's flashcards is also great to improve your GRE vocabulary and also checkout the Essential Words for the GRE.

Quantitative Reasoning:

Let's talk about the Quantitative Reasoning,

 Shall we?

​​​​At first glance, you may think that Quantitative Reasoning is a piece of cake but hey there are some chances that you might make some silly mistakes in this. So, stay focused​!​​​

​And if you were good in high school maths then it's okay and if you have forgotten then at least revise maths once because this is the part where you have chances to score highest!

​Most of the students have realized that these 20 Quant questions are easy but the thing is you won't ever realized that you have made a silly mistake. You have 35 minutes to crack those 20 questions and 1 question mostly takes 1 minute to answer​ and later on save those 15 minutes to resolve those answers again!

If you don't know the answer then leave it, don't be ​obsessed ​with it or else you will lose focus and lose marks too!

And I recommend you to use ETS's Official quantitative reasoning Book to prepare for QR and you can check out the Official ETS's GRE Combo!

Use these books to Improve your ​Quantitative Reasoning!

​Analytical Writing GRE:

​In the GRE AWA section all you have to do is analyses the issue and you can take a stand and support with example!

but before doing all these stuff make sure you have your own stretygy to write this essay!

Make something like this:

Introduction

​Description

​Example 1

Example 2

Example 3

​Contradiction ​& justification, conclusion!

​Contradiction is where you look the issue from the opposite point of view and then you justify your ​point of view!

​Don't make it messy and make sure there aren't any grammatical or spelling mistake in the essay!

If you don't want to prepare for GRE all by yourself and you don't want to go to the ​classes then you can always go for the Magoosh GRE, check out our Magoosh GRE Review​.

Final words:

So, cracking GRE is just a piece of cake, all you need is rich vocabulary and high school maths, that's it! 😉

If you have any question then feel free to ask!

Best luck!

​Now, next part is filling the blanks with appropriate words. Now, this is tricky and if you have mugged up few word's and you don't know how to put them into the context then trust me, you have wasted your time!

When you are trying to improve your vocabulary, practice that word and make some practice sentences, like how to use this word, make 5/6 sentences about the same word and it will improve your vocabulary, you don't need to mug up the words! Because you will see similar options in the questions!​​​​​
