GRE preparation study materials or GRE study guide

There are a variety of materials/study guides and options available for GRE preparation. Based on your stage of GRE preparation the choice of study material will vary. Every GRE aspirant can be categorized under the below 3 stages and according we can look at the study material they will be looking for:

Stranger stage
Books with the necessary theory, practice questions, and a few full-length tests. Students who are yet to start GRE preparation fall under this category.

Acquaintance stage
Online test series is the next door where GRE aspirants familiarize themselves with the different types of GRE topics. They are not yet ready to take the GRE.

Friend stage
GRE aspirants use Online materials with the necessary theory, practice questions, and a few full-length tests. At this stage they take GRE preparation more seriously.

It’s a popular misconception that one can prepare for GRE simply by taking a number of tests. That is not correct. Unless sound conceptual foundations and problem-solving skills are developed in Quant, it is futile to take many tests. Similarly, strong vocabulary and reading skills are necessary to perform well in the Verbal Reasoning section. Here again, some students are under the impression that this section of GRE is only about mastering words. No! The Verbal section requires strong skills in reading, vocabulary, and logical reasoning. Apart from Verbal and Quantitative Reasoning, GRE has an Analytical Writing section. This requires skills in argumentative writing.So, when you evaluate GRE study guides or study materials, you need to verify the source and make sure it is authentic, well-researched, and designed as per ETS standards.
