My biggest challenges while preparing for GRE:
- Recollecting the meaning of words – Initially referring with Barron’s Wordlist did not help me much. Later, I switched over to deriving the meaning of the word from its context and making good use of GREedge wordlists (getting to know both the visual context and the different verbal contexts in which the word is used).
- Lengthy RC Passages: I initially wasted much time on going through the whole passage, which was a trouble. Following GREedge’s RC tips of dissecting the whole essay, by just gliding through the initial points of an RC excerpt and getting an overview of the whole excerpt as such helps to answer questions much easier
- Tricky Quants questions: If the answer to a Quant question appears to be too easy and straightforward, think again! Read the question again until you exactly figure out what is asked and eliminate the obvious deceptive options that are put up there to trick you!
My Overall experience with GREedge:
I started my GRE preparation earlier. With GREedge, the preparation was at its best as the right material was provided. The materials are reviewed by experts. I did not have to go about experimenting different methods. I chose the one that works best for me till I gave the exam.
GREedge provided me many practice tests as possible. I practiced in the real-time “online adaptive” environment, which proved to be of great help! My actual exam turned out to be a breeze. My SFA’s spent more time on helping me improve my weaker areas.
Overall, it was a great experience! Thank you for everything, GREedge.
