When studying for the GRE, after you feel like you've learned all that you need to know (vocab words, math formulas, reading comprehension strategies, etc.), the key is to practice, practice, practice. Do as many practice problems as you possibly can so that it feels like second nature to you on the actual test day. That being said, the dearth of available practice tests is problematic--you really only have a few options, which is truly unfortunate. From my personal experience, the Kaplan and McGraw Hill practice tests were WAY too easy in comparison to the actual GRE. The Princeton Review practice tests are FILLED with mistakes, and trust me, it's REALLY frustrating/confusing when a book tells you that you got a problem wrong when it actuality you did it correctly.
This book (Barron's 6 GRE Practice Tests) is brand new and there were no reviews, so I had no idea what to expect. But having taken the GRE last month, I can attest to the fact that the difficulty level of these...
I used this product at the end of my GRE studies to get more experience in taking a GRE all the way through. In every practice test I got in the 140-150s area verbal and the 160s for math. My actual scores were 168 quant and 165 verbal.
The real problem with this book though is that it shakes your confidence. If you are still early in your prep and just want challenging verbal sections, go for it. Confidence is so important for the Gre that using these test will surely undermine your ability to preform at you potential.
I recommend the PR's practice tests and Kaplan's prep books.
While I wanted a challenge to practice for my GRE, this book is too difficult to work with. Both verbal and math sections are much more difficult than my trusted GRE for Dummies book. It dawned on me that maybe my previous book was too easy, but then I took the ETS practice test and read the other review so I know I'm not the only one with this issue.
While this may be a good challenge, it does not suit my needs, even though the math sections are good practice. I want to take the whole test through (4 hours) in order to get my pacing down. Since this book is overly difficult it does not simulate the testing experience for me.
Especially in some of the reading comprehension sections, the author really expects you to read his/her mind. The answer explanations aren't clear so its hard to tell whether I'm wrong or if the book is erroneous. Also, there is a question type that I haven't seen on the other tests before.
The math sections are a little better,...
