Is this book enough for me to practice for the quantitative section? My aim is to score in the quantitative section.
Hope that helps! Are these two same? Looking forward for your help and thank you for your time in advance! There is no difference between 2nd editions. I bought both, the ets official guide to the gre and also magoosh premium pack for gre.
Many Thanks in advance. Rashi March 17, at pm Hello, I recently took one of the practice tests available at the end of the ets official guide, second edition and was wondering how indicative are the scores of the practice test of the actual test.
Is the practice test easier than the real test or the difficulty level is the same? Or are they the same as the 2. I revisited all of the Magoosh problems that I flagged or got incorrect the first time.
This was great practice and tremendously satisfying since I could see how far I had come in the intervening weeks. The ability to rapidly go back to this subset of problems is another awesome and unique feature of the Magoosh online system versus books.
I did this last practice test two days before my test date. I was a little bummed at my lower quant score, but this was largely due to spending too much time on a hard quant problem instead of marking it and going back. Test day I nailed my essays, the first quant section, and the first verbal section.
The second quant section, right after my min break, was really rough: I didn't even finish all of the problems before running out of time. I thought this doomed me to a or quant score, but I didn't panic and pressed on through another verbal and a final quant. That second quant section must have been the experimental section--thank goodness. Not panicking really saved me here Misc tips Time is the most valuable resource.
Knowing shortcuts and faster approaches saves time that can be used to check work or revisit tricky problems--this is why it's worth watching the explanation videos even when I got the problem right. It's also important to take advantage of the ability in the revised GRE to skip problems and come back later.
This has the added benefit of seeing a problem in a new light, which may reveal information or approaches missed the first time through. Set up scratch paper ahead of time. For the computer-based GRE, the clock doesn't start until after the "Instructions" screen that says whether the section is verbal or quantitative. Take this time to set up scratch paper.
For quant, I jotted down "1" through "20" over four pages of scrap paper to have room for equations and drawings.
For verbal, I jotted down "1" through "20" on a single page with three horizontal lines next to each to keep track when doing process of elimination with answer choices. Although this would only take a few seconds at the start of each problem, that adds up to an extra half minute over a whole section. I also felt like this routine helped me mentally prepare for each section in a zen sort of way.
Don't over-study. I found that studying more than about 2 or 3 hours a day had diminishing returns since my brain could only absorb so much information per day, even with plenty of sleep.
I usually did around 60 to 90 minutes of topic review i.
Simulate test day faithfully. I read the ETS test day information from the start to gain familiarity with the test center rules so I could simulate that environment as closely as possible. Since I was taking the computer-based GRE, I took computer-based practice tests or stood up the book like a screen so I could practice copying equations and drawings to paper over the course of 7 weeks, there were at least 20 or 30 quant practice problems that I got wrong simply because I incorrectly transcribed an equation or expression.
I also didn't let myself drink water or go to the bathroom during practice tests except during the minute break. Making it as close to real as as possible prevented surprises on test day.
The order of the sections is not announced, so the test-taker does not know which section is unscored and meant only for research. However, a research section may sometimes be identified as such, and may follow the five scored sections.
As mentioned, GRE is also offered in a paper-based format. The main segments are the same—analytical writing, verbal reasoning, and quantitative reasoning. Each of these three segments has two sections.
While 30 minutes are available for each section on analytical reasoning, 35 minutes are given for each section on verbal reasoning, and 40 minutes for each section on quantitative reasoning. The test lasts about three hours and 30 minutes overall.
A practice paper-test is available on the official ETS site. Download the PDF here. The computer-based and paper-based tests both have a minute break during the course of the tests. Candidates who take the General Test on the computer-based format will have no advantage over those who opt for the paper-based format: only a basic word-processor, with options to insert and delete text and copy and paste material, is made available to them, and the test-takers cannot correct their spellings or grammar.
Here is a typical example of an issue-task question that one might see on the test.
