GRE Tips and good books for this year

  1. May 13, 2013 #1
    Any good GRE tips? As in general GRE and not pgre. I'm planning on spending sometime preparing for it since my writing sucks. I want to buy one or two books on general GRE, can someone do a review of the popular gre books? I see mixed review for every book.

    I'm using the one printed by the actual test makers ETS. You can find it at any Barnes and Noble:


    It's pretty thorough, although perhaps a bit formal. It should definitely be ONE of the books you go through entirely. They also give you a CD that lets you get comfortable with taking the test on the computer, which is nice.

    Another reason I got it is that there's a guy on youtube that goes over every math problem in the book. So if you're looking for math tips, at least, this guys great. The lessons do drag out a bit on time, but hell, its free.
