Dear people, I will have to take the GRE soon.. After reading a bit about the test, I did a sample test.. and yack!
My quantitative skills (maths) were really good.. but my vocab part! It sucks (they use words I have NEVER heard).. Essays will be easy-peasy
I am particularly interested :
- How to improve the vocab skills? Is there any good book with set of words you can recommend (I don't want to learn a dictionary be heart!)?
- Any other ideas how to study, apart from practice tests (I have a quite good thick book with lot sof tests, paper and Computer)?
How were your experiences? I will take the computer test (is there a long waiting list? I will take the Computer cersion with 90 % likeliness in FRA beginning of November)? The grading system is a little complicated...
And.. do you know whether one can use a piece of paper and pencil to sketch while taking the exam, or "do all operations have to take place in the head"?
I would be very grateful for any advice/observations.. it seems to be more difficult than I thought!
