I have a problem with word problems! [#permalink] New post 17 May 2018, 16:07
Hi everybody,
A few days ago, I took gre and I got a terrible score in Quant (164). I was really prepared for the test but since I slept just 2 hours in the night before the test day, I was so tired and also there were 3 quant sections but still I expected to get a better score in quant. In quant sections, I faced a lot of word problems that really needed time to be solved. Now I want to retake again gre test and I want to be majored in this kind of question and I want to practice a lot to be really fast in solving this kind of questions. So could you introduce me a great source for that? Also how we can get real gre questions? I mean I want to find the questions of gre test that I recently took.Any idea?

Thanks

Hi,

Very important to be well rested before the exam. GRE questions are proprietary it is illegal for you to share them on any forum and-or website. So you cannot get questions online that have been on the actual test unless ETS published them.

For practice:

Hi Sandy,
Thank you.
Yes you're right. in all mock tests, I got +320 but in real test I got 315! and since my major is mechanical engineering and I want to apply to top universities, so with this score (especially quant) I don't have any chance.
Now I found that there is a book called "official gre value combo " in which previous quant questions are . Do you know how can I get this book freely?
Thanks

Sandy,

The Official Guide to the GRE® General Test , 3rd edition is not same as 2nd edition and it has 817 pages not 576 pages. I have this ebook and I was wondering if I am able to upload that? Since I am new and there are some restriction for newbies.

Not sure in what world 164 is a "terrible" score. Inadequate for your purposes, perhaps...

:-D
At that time, I was so frustrated. and yes I need +168 and also I got +167 in all mack tests and so I was surprised to get 164 in real test. But generally +160 is a great score. you're right.
