About GRE

Everything you need to know about the GRE Coaching Program


The Graduate Record Exam, designed by ETS is a mandatory requirement for admission into most U.S. post-graduate and doctoral programs. It is also mandatory for post-grad programs in top ranking colleges around the world.

Challenges

The biggest challenges with the GRE that you are likely to face are  time management, test taking stamina, decision fatigue and vocabulary.

But it is important to know that the GRE isn’t a theory based test. Sure there are aspects of vocabulary building, but for the most part, the GRE is a strategy based test! Understanding the test mechanism and taking mock test followed by intensive review are important aspects of the GRE Coaching Program.

I joined PlusPrep for the TOEFL and GRE course in August and I would like to mention this was one of the best decisions I took, initially I was skeptical, but after attending the demo I knew this is the best place to be and I was proven right, the best part was complete attention given to each student and a personalized approach to training, its one of the best training institutes for GRE in my opinion and that too at the lowest possible price.

Vocabulary building is an integral part of doing well on GRE verbal. This has to be learnt contextually.

This will help you build core skills as well as gauge where you stand in your preparation level. Mathematics isn't as difficult as you might think.

GMAT if you're only looking to apply to MBA programs. Business schools accept GRE scores, but admission committees view the GMAT as a much better metric for selecting the right candidate. This is so because the GMAT is designed specifically to gauge competencies related to decision making processes that are required in good business administrators! The GRE is more of a generic yardstick for eliminating candidates! On the other hand, if you are looking at a Masters in anything other than business administration - then the GRE is the test to take!!
