I'm just wondering if anyone's tried this before, and how well it worked.

I am thinking about spending roughly an hour a day to answer questions in the HW Help section as practice for the GRE-Ph. I figure it'll give me a good variety of problems and I'll get to help some people along the way. I plan on taking the GRE in November.

Anyone tried implementing this as part of a study strategy?

Nobody has ever mentioned this it does sound like a good strategy!
Of course, you have to be able to tell when a problem is not appropriate for the GRE (too advanced or too specific) and not spend too much time on those. And also, it's a good idea as long as in addition you also do old GRE exams for practice.

Old GRE's are a must by what I hear. I am currently studying for the test as well. Search Google for "Physics GRE" or something of the like. several pdfs of old GREs should come up in the results.
