Before and During the GRE Test

Review Math Before Taking the Test:

If you are reading this, then you are on the right track. In my vast experiences of helping students get ready for various math tests, I have found that just plain old fashion practice practice practice has the highest success rate. You want to make sure you stretch those brain muscles before you take your test.

I know it is not glamorous, exciting or quick, but I found that most of the students that I have worked with who have gone on to pass math tests worked through math problems, asking questions about them as they arose.

The more different types of questions you look at the more comfortable and familiar you will get with working with the various types of questions. So when it gets to the real deal you will be ready to go full steam ahead!!!

If you haven't done so already, check out our Math Help page. This page will link you to math tutorials that will cover concepts you need to know for the test.

Memorize Formulas:

The GRE test DOES NOT provide you with formulas.

Some of the more common formulas are slope and geometry formulas.

Practice Your Basic Math Skills Daily:

Remember when you questioned why you need to know how to add, subtract, multiply and divide when you have a calculator? Well, here is the answer to that question. You CANNOT use a calculator on the general GRE math test.

If you practice adding, multiplying, subtracting and dividing BEFORE the test, you will be more comfortable without a calculator when you go in and take the test. Also this might help you work the problems on the test quicker.

As you practice, make sure that you check yourself with the calculator, just in case.

Take Practice Tests:

Once you have reviewed your math and have polished up those basic math skills, then you should look at some practice tests.

This will help you become familiar with the different types of questions that will come your way on the test.

It will also help you get used to the directions that you will see on the test, which can help you save time when you take it.

There are two practice tests at this website: Test I, the Warm-up Test and Test II, the Adaptive Test.

DO NOT Cram the Night Before the Test:

Yes, do go over math problems, but do not try to do it all the night before and don't over do it the night before. If you try to overload your brain in a short time it might explode during the test (or at least feel like it) :-)

DO NOT Stay Up All Night:

Yes, I do know that it might be hard to get to sleep early on the eve of the big test, however try not to stay up all night. I have had students say they were up all night before a test and literally fell asleep during the test. Even if you don't go to sleep, your brain will be tired and consequently you will not be able to perform to your full potential.
