    Lang's "Basic Mathematics" for General GRE Prep

    From what I've gathered, the math on the General GRE is made up of material primarily covered in high school mathematics. With that said, would working through Serge Lang's "Basic Mathematics" text be beneficial to prepping for the math portion of the General GRE?

    The GRE general math section is stupidly simple for someone with a technical undergraduate background like math, physics, or engineering. The challenge is dealing with the time pressure, avoiding simple mistakes and things like that. Just get some past tests and work through them.

    Lang's book is superb so you should read it. However, it will not help you on the test.
