We have GRE tip 3 that is the third strategy that you need to keep in mind It says that you have to give a diagnostic test or a mock and analyze where you stand So this internal is really very important. Why because before you start your preparation, you should actually be knowing What is your current level? Okay, so it is therefore very important that you give one mock and analyze your scores what is going to happen is you will come to realize that maybe verbal is your strength or maybe quants is your strength and That is how you are going to prioritize your schedule that is going to help you in future.

I am going to devote to verbal ability Okay. Yeah now the 40% remaining will be devoted to quants Now with chapters are there like the more in-depth analysis you do you will be able to prioritize Your schedule keeping that in mind so it is very important again that you have to give a mock first so that you are able to analyze your strengths and weaknesses and then you Prioritize your schedule keeping that in mind here comes the GRE tip five building a strong vocabulary base will lead you a step closer towards your dream school Now GRE as an exam is vocabulary based exam So you need to have at least two thousand plus words in your memory. Like you have to memorize two thousand plus words Whether you like it or whether you don’t like it now I know this is tedious and for most of you guys it is difficult to cram up words and meanings So I’ll give you a very easy way of how actually you can you know learn vocabulary and memorize all the words that are there so first and the foremost thing that you need to do is You have to get done with Norman Lewis word power made easy Okay, so this is I really the world’s best book if you are, you know learning vocabulary What happens is in this book? Once you are done with around ten words, or maybe twenty words You’re given exercises in the form of match the following, true or false so what happens is as soon as you are done learning ten to twenty words you solve the Exercises in turn you’re not cramming of words But actually understanding the meaning and in that way you are never going to forget those words So they’re around 48 sessions in the book that you can cover up or within a span of 12 days Okay, four sessions each day.

Okay, let’s move ahead GRE tip 6 says Arithmetic and geometry is of utmost importance Okay, so as you guys know that in your GRE You will be having four sections like two of cones and two of verbal if I leave the experimental one So if I say you have two section of cones, that means you have around 40 questions. Okay, so out of these 40 questions Around 20 questions are going to comprise of your arithmetic and geometry arithmetic is your ratio proportion time speed distance time and work and geometry is your circles triangles polygons are a thematic will also include your percentages and all those things so around fifty percent or More than that in some cases. In fact of your GRE quantitative aptitude is going to be your arithmetic and geometry so it is of like, you know, if you are wasting your time solving again and again those probability questions and permutation combinations Mind my words is just going to be around two to four questions out of 40 questions are going to be a probability permutation combination so make sure that you are investing your time in your arithmetic and geometry and Rigorously solving all the questions because more than 50% of your GRE coins is going to be arithmetic and geometry Now here comes the most important GRE strategy That is GRE tip 7 what it says is you always need to practice in sets of 20 now I will tell you why this is important because in your GRE you will be having around 5 sections including the Experimental section like two of ones 204 bill and one is going to be experimental So in one session you will be having 20 questions so if you get an habit of solving 20 questions at a stretch That is how you are going to build up for the final d-day exam Ok, so you have the habit of solving 20 questions, for example, even if you are solving verbal? Or if you are focusing on your Kwan’s make sure that you are solving in sets of 20 So as you guys know for your corne section 20 questions, you have to solve in 35 minutes and for your verbal section 20 questions, you have to solve in 30 minutes So always practice in sets of 20 so you are well-prepared for the d-day Now following the GRE tip 7 comes the GRE tip 8 it says that improve your accuracy First and then work towards your speed now if you’re solving in sets of 20 You might you know first if you’re solving you get 10 questions, correct and 10 wrong. That is 50 percent accuracy Now what do you have to do is how are you going to make sure that from 10 right questions how we’re going to move? Ahead with 15 right questions that has to be the strategy first So first improve your accuracy and once you get 15 on 20, correct? Then probably what you can do is you can move ahead with you know Increasing your speed so that you get done with all the sections within the stipulated time now moving ahead GRE tip 9 it says that GRE vocabulary is Contextual and not semantic now. What do you mean by that? It means that it is very important that you have a particular base of like You know thousand two thousand words in your memory But at the same time it is very important that you understand the context of the entire sentence So sometimes when you are solving your maybe text completion or a sentence equivalence questions even if you don’t know the meanings of all the words by just reading the sentence and Comprehending that in a very proper manner you will be able to get the right word so, you know first Usually the strategy says that you know You have to come up with your own fill in whatever word comes up to your mind You have to select that word and try to fill it up in that blank. Ok So once you fill that word up What do you have to do is take that word and match it with all the options that are available So it is not that you know You need to know the meaning of all the words that you see all the words and the options that you see in text completion or maybe sentence equivalence but it is important that you you know go through the entire sentence understand the meaning understand the Context in which the words are being used so that you will be good to go Ok, so now comes the conclusion the last step that you all have to keep in mind and ideally all the students Take this tip for granted The GRE tip 10 are the most important tip says that you have to give mops marks and marks. Yes you got it, right if you are aiming for a score of 330 plus it becomes very important for you to at least give eight to ten marks before your actual GRE Yes, it is mandate.
