GRE has to be one of the most insomnia inducing standardized tests out there. It really is something that demands your time, energy, attention, focus and concentration. I know that for many of the applicants to the Fulbright Scholarship this year, they are about to appear for the GRE exam. So to help you all out, here are some free resources that I have complied that will help you tackle some key areas and concepts. Download and print, as and when required:
- 1,014 practice questions for the new GRE with an answer key: 1,014 Practice Questions for the New GRE, 2nd Edition
- These practice questions will help you go through your concepts and polish your skills.
- Remember that the GRE syllabus is nothing you haven’t done before. It contains the same old concepts, formulas and subject matter that you have tackled in high school. So do not wait for your preparation to finish before you start practicing. Practice all the way through even when you are on your first chapter of the GRE book.
- GRE Math Review – for quick revisions: gre_math_review
- You should stop detailed preparation the night before the exam.
- If you have prepared well, you will know how all the formulas were derived but even if you are short on time and would rather save the mind numbing fear of forgetting something, take a print out of this document to revise all the main formulas and related strategies right before the exam.
