Careful about waiting for that CD, it often doesnt come until after you have taken the testCaptainJack02 said:When you register for the GRE, the ETS sends you a CD with two sample tests. Do those tests and you're good to go. IF you really really feel you need more practice, I hear Princeton Review's book is pretty good.
But really, doing those two practice tests should be enough. It's not a very difficult test, and if you just go in with a clear mind you'll do fine. Er, your brother.
Also, dont buy books for the word lists. Type in GRE word list in google and there are tons of sites with free word lists and whatnot.
Yeah its for my "brother". His name is...uh...Ralph. *quietly aside* "Yes, that will do."CaptainJack02 said:if you just go in with a clear mind you'll do fine. Er, your brother.
ditto....depends on how well he needs to do, how much time he wants to put into it. The same words are used from year to year, so reviewing a GRE wordbank is not a bad idea. However he wants to review, I'd recommend using computerized materials rather than a book. The computer does take some getting used to; might as well do your studying in the same format. I think I used a Kaplan CD.GBFKicks said:I thought the toughets part of the GRE was getting used to taking the test on a computer. I would just make sure you take a practice exam or two. The test itself is rather easy.
Good luck to your brother.
