Hey guys,

I just started my preparation for the GRE today. I took one of the practice tests from the ETS powerprep software and scored 146 on verbal and 153 on the quant section. I did not write the two AWAs, but I took the timed test. I'm aiming for 163 quant. The verbal section isn't that important because some universities i want to apply to do not consider the verbal section for admission. Therefore I want to dedicate about 2/3 of my time to quant. Furthermore, I'm considering taking the GMAT in about 1 1/2 months. During the practice test i felt that i could have solved more problems if it wasn't for the ticking time. I also didn't know a lot of words in der verbal section, which was foreseeable.
I just joined Magoosh GRE because it seems like a good deal. A friend gave me the MGMAT books, i think there are a lot of strategies for the harder problems.

I'm thankful for any tips on preparation or resources.
cheers

Hi Ballpen,

If you're planning to take the GMAT in about 1.5 months, then you might find it distracting to study for both the GRE and the GMAT at the same time. While many of the Quant subjects and some of the Verbal concepts do 'overlap' between the two Exams, there are enough significant differences between the two Tests that you would likely find it better to stick with one Exam at a time.

1) When are you planning to apply to Grad School?
2) What Schools are you planning to apply to?

GRE Masters aren't born, they're made,

Hi ballpen,

Congratulations on starting our GRE Journey. Now a 153 to 165 in Quant is quite a lot of ground to cover. I would recommend that you go through the following post.

http://greprepclub.com/forum/gre-study-plan-2016-edition-2244.html

Specifically pay attention to step 4 and step 5.

Once you have done the SWAT analysis of Quant section you can target your areas of weakness. There are plenty of books available and tonnes of material available on this very website to accomplish the same.

As far as the verbal wordlists are concerned, here are the links to resources present in this forum, which you might find useful:

Also go through this extremely useful post: http://greprepclub.com/forum/how-to-become-a-gre-vocabulary-expert-124.html

Hope you have fun preparing for the GRE.

Regards,
