best thing is to re-read the courses you had studied before in ur undergrad. and try to solve the 3 exams released from ETS.
you can share me ur opinions.
as for links,
www.grephysics.com is a nice link

Does anybody know where I can get hold of a copy of the official ETS GRE Physics Prep Book? I've tried amazon, ebay and the major bookstores but nobody seem to have them in stock!

Having an Engineering degree and applying to grad school in Physics, I was required to take the GRE Physics test.

About 3 or 4 days before my test, I found a book - it was either the ETS book or a Schaum's Series book - that basically listed a whole bunch of important results, without going into any of the theory. I quickly went through it to refresh my memory.

I did okay...not great, but not too bad, considering my background. I scored about 800 out of 990 (or about 80 percentile, if I recall correctly).

As I was accepted by more than half the grad schools that I applied to, I'm guessing the score didn't hurt me too badly.

Thanks for that, didn't think of checking on the .com site!! :blushing: I wish they did it on the UK site. Guess I'll just have to wait longer for delivery!

USD 125 sounds a bit steep for such a book to me though! :uhh:

Yeah, books are way expensive here. But oddly, there was something about $13...on that page - I didn't look carefully to see what that was.

I sometimes buy books from the UK to get them cheaper. :redface:
