Testing Acing the Math GRE Subject test?

  1. Mar 18, 2012 #1
    OK, so I have a solid year+ to prepare for the math GRE subject test. It's pretty intimidating because I don't know where to begin studying. Does anyone know of a good game plan to approach this test with?

    If you've taken the test, please share how you prepped for it.

    Yes, read every math book from 11th grade until now. :)

    Seriously, I bought the Princeton Review Book. I'm taking it in October (or Nov, whichever it is). Its a pretty decent book. And I'd guess taking a bunch of practice exams is a good idea as well. A lot of the stuff on the exam is like "Here's a problem there is a simple way to do it that requires some bit of cleverness or a really hard, but hack-ish way to do it." So, it seems that doing practice problems is really important.

    But, I'm wondering the same thing as you are.

    I didn't take it so take my advice with a grain of salt but... I did a practice exam and spoke to many friends about it and, if you did pure math, brush up on your computational calculus, linear algebra and differential equations.
