GRE Math Resources

  1. Jun 15, 2016 #1
    I am planning to give the MATH GRE. I intend to go to physics graduate schools but I may have to given the MATH GRE according to my college's requirement. I very much like maths, but I'm overloaded with physics related work, including the GRE, since I have been making a transition from economics/maths to physics/maths.

    What are the essential tips for someone like me looking to prepare for the GRE? What books should I go through for each topic?

    Hmm. So you plan to go to graduate school for physics and that school requires MATH GRE? That's a bit unusual. Are you sure they don't mean the math portion of the regular GRE? If it's the former, then I can't help you with that. I did poorly on the math gre. If it's the latter, then I wouldn't worry about it to much if you're undergraduate is in physics, the math is pretty simple. I would simply look at old test to get a feel for the problems and learn how to solve those problems quickly
