GRE Also After GMAT [#permalink]  11 Jul 2016, 11:55

I have scored 700+ 1 times and 750 and 750+ in GMAT 2 times. I have always score Q51 in GMAT. I also wish to give GRE. I am planning to Buy a Magoosh course. I am targeting a minimum score of V160 and Q170. I recently have heard that GRE is not that much verbose as it used to be previously.

Can I hit the exam in 30-45 days If I mug up 1000 words provided by Magoosh. Please advice me over similarities between GRE and GMAT and what section of my GMAT preparation will be useful for my GRE Verbal Journey.

Hi, and welcome to GREPrepClub

Well, going straight to point: your quant GMAT percentile is quite good and this is a strong point for the GRE quant. More or less the necessary skills for the GRE are similar to the GMAT's skills.

As for Verbal is a bit different: you need logic but also a lot of terms to know. Maybe, the most similar section between the tests is RC. The rest is quite different in terms of approach and strategy.

Also, you can take our free CAT test. You can find it following my signature.

Hope this helps

Regards

Thanks, Carcass,

I am targeting Ph.D. in Economics from Harvard School of Economics and some other competitive universities. Quantitative is not an issue I will nail it. How much overall score will be comparable to 770+ in Gmat.

Regarding Vocabulary If i expertise 333 High frequency words by Barrons + 1000 words by Magoosh will they be able to cover the need of the hour?

Look at here http://gmatclub.com/forum/proportion-of ... 20765.html

It is not complete and after that, we will post here on the main GRE board.

Yes the sources you cited are good enough

For Ph.D in BS look also here my post guides-and-resources-for-a-ph-d-in-business-1007.html

I wrote my GMAT back in 2009 for doing my MBA, and now preparing for GRE exams for joining a part time MS program. So these are my views regarding both the exams

Quant is bit harder in GMAT as compared to GRE. You having got Q51 in GMAT, should ace GRE quant with ease.

As on GRE verbal, RC is similar in both tests though I feel it is bit tougher in GRE. Then you have Text completion and sentence equivalence which are not in GMAT exams. They test your vocabulary in a context, so mugging up word list might not help that much. Understanding how to use a word will get you good score. Yes, 30-45 days is more than enough for someone who has got 700+ in GMAT.
