Ok, ready? This is gonna get detailed, so bookmark this page and take your time digesting my advice. Foundational Skills I break this down into several areas: Vocabulary — learning new words that the GRE is likely to test. We define over 1, GRE words with mnemonics to help the definitions stick in your brain. We also have a word root index. I also like both the Manhattan GRE Essential Flashcards and their Advanced Flashcards — they have relevant words, memorable sentences, and synonyms of words — all in an easy to carry box of cards.
At the same time, as a test taker, you should only use prep material that comes as close to the original as possible. The implicit assumption is that the more closely material hews to the real deal, the more effectively you can practice and, by extension, the higher you can score.
That is not to say that the questions in this book are perfect.
It is clear that many people authored the questions in this book, and thus the quality, especially in the verbal, is inconsistent. Fortunately, the words in the Text Completions section are not nearly as obscure. However, some questions are nothing more than really basic level sentences, e.
So despite the plethora of questions, many of the questions in the TC section feel more like vocabulary exercises than actual GRE questions.
However, the SE questions in this book were noticeably inferior to their TC counterparts. The vocab could be ridiculously obscure. This is but one example in a sea of subpar questions. Foundational Skills I break this down into several areas: Vocabulary — learning new words that the GRE is likely to test.
We define over 1, GRE words with mnemonics to help the definitions stick in your brain. We also have a word root index. I also like both the Manhattan GRE Essential Flashcards and their Advanced Flashcards — they have relevant words, memorable sentences, and synonyms of words — all in an easy to carry box of cards. Include a pronunciation so you can use it in speech, a brief definition, a mnemonic, a sentence using the word, and any synonyms you also want to learn.
See my blog for examples and a chart explaining how to organize your vocab studies. Your daily reading see below will also help with GRE vocabulary. Any words you see in a normal publication are fair game for the GRE to test. Whatever method you use to learn vocab, quiz yourself.
The longer you have to prepare, the more important improving reading comprehension becomes. My 1 recommendation is to read academic journals — ETS adapts many passages from academia. Also read anything from Arts and Letters Daily , the New Yorker , or the Economist , which are all written at a high reading level.
This will improve your comprehension and passively teach you vocabulary. It will also give you material for the essays! Math — mastering arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data analysis concepts.
My top recommendations are to use the Manhattan Prep GRE Set if you have more time, like 4 or more months or CliffsNotes Math Review if you have less than 4 months to build conceptual knowledge. Learn, apply, rinse, repeat. Read everything ETS writes about the essays on its website ; it offers lots of good advice. But i need the latest edition of book of Manhattan GRE 5lb….

Still, if you want the very most recent Manhattan resource, I recommend the second edition of the Manhattan 5 Lb. Now, as I said, Manhattan and the OG are great materials. Successful tst takers use good GRE preparation content form many sources. This blog is one good source.
There are tons of good sources for GRE reading practice too. So certainly stick with some good books, such as Manhattan, the OG, and other books of similar quality.
