Top materials to study for the verbal section of the GRE? [#permalink] New post 03 Jan 2018, 22:09
I took the kaplan online course and felt that the question structure on the verbal section - specifically text completion - are a lot different that that of the actual test. For text completion and sentence completion, I feel that the Kaplan materials focus more on the complex words as opposed to complex sentence structure as seen on the actual GRE exam. In essence, I feel that the Kaplan materials prepare you for nothing more than an average score. Can anyone corroborate this? I need better study materials in order to improve my verbal score. Please provide suggestions.

Your feeling is right. I can confirm this, even though their material is pretty good.

In general, all prep companies provided what is a copycat of the real questions are. They are good for practice and to develop your skills, but then is up to you hit a high score thanks to your forging skills. There is no shortcut to this.

MGRE is pretty good on the verbal side but it relies too much on vocabulary in my opinion and not to teach the overall meaning of the sentence. A sort of understated feeling of what is going on unfolding the sentence.

For instance our test is pretty good at verbal. Give it a try and let me know.

Regards

Hi @Carcass,

I will use Gre Prep Club Tests for mock exams, but which material should I use for study foundation before doing mock tests?

If you do mean quant material the gmatclub pdf book is for me top-notch. You do have all the necessary for the best score without waste time with different books.

For practicing we do have tons of questions under each section of the test.

Well, I am going to create a post "All you need to know to tackle the verbal section of the test - The trinity knot" will be called, in which I will explain how to face up to every of the 3 question types in the exam.

For sure Manhattan has the best material/strategy.

Hope this helps
