Publisher Comments:

Whether you’re a college senior or someone who graduated years ago, you’ll want this friendly guide to help you ace the GRE and get into the grad school of your choice. Suzee Vlk, a test-prep guru with nearly thirty years of coaching experience supplies you with:
  • Up-to-date sample questions
  • Two complete practice tests
  • Guidance on how to approach each type of question
  • Tips on how to avoid test tricks and traps
  • Relaxation techniques that keep you calm and focused
  • Hints on how to beat the clock
  • Comprehensive reviews of the basics in all categories

With Suzee as your guide, you’ll discover how to think the GRE. You’ll identify the point behind each of the various styles and types of questions and understand what each is meant to test. And you’ll gain the confidence you need to:

  • Have the last word on sentence completions, antonyms, analogies, reading comprehension, and analytical writing questions
  • Take the full measure of the geometry and algebra questions
  • Hand in an incomparable performance on quantitative comparison and problem-solving questions

Revised to address the test’s new computer-adaptive format, The GRE Test For Dummies arms you with everything you need to vanquish the beast standing between you and the graduate program of your choice.

Synopsis:

A totally effective and surprisingly fun guide to the Graduate Record Examination

In Fall 2007, the GRE Program is planning to implement significant changes to the verbal measure, quantitative measure, and analytical writing sections of the GRE. This easy-to-use, refreshingly irreverent revision shares inside information on what to expect with these changes, helping both recent graduates and workforce veterans prepare for the revised test, maximize their score, and get into the graduate program of their choice. It includes all of the secrets of the Internet-based test (iBT)-in which the computer generates unique questions according to correct or incorrect answers-as well as brush-up reviews on math and grammar, two complete practice tests, and proven time-management techniques that make test-prep fun and simple.

Suzee Vlk wrote For Dummies guides to the ACT, SAT, GRE, and GMAT and taught test preparation classes for more than 25 years. Michelle Gilman (Solana, CA) is the founder and CEO of Fusion Learning Center. Veronica Saydak (Solana, CA) is Director of student curricula at Fusion and has been tutoring test preparation at all levels for several years.
