    Study Material for GRE

    A few books and CDs which I found and which my friends found useful are:

    1) Barron's How to Prepare for the GRE: Graduate Record Examination, 14th edition.
    2) GRE Big Book, published by the Educational Testing Service.
    This is not as known but is very useful. It contains 27 question papers culled from the paper and pencil avatar of the GRE over several years, and is published by the same people who set the tests, ETS. It may be a little difficult to find. But put in your best efforts to get it. Its worth it.
    3) Kaplan Higher Score on the GRE CD
    Kaplan is a little on a tougher side. So dont get disheartened by lesser scores onthis.
    4) The Princeton Review CD
    This is much closer to the real one. Though some tests are really easy. For a free sample test:
    http://www.princetonreview.com/grad/testprep/
    5) The PowerPrep CD
    You will receive this CD from ETS once you pay for a date. Keep a test or two to practise a day before the exam. Also try to do all the tests from this CD.

    will keep posting more info...

    What is GRE?

    The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a standardized test taken in order to get into graduate school in the United States. It is commonly required of applicants to graduate schools in fields other than business, law, and medicine.
    GRE consists of two tests: the General Test and the Subject Test.

    General Test measures critical thinking, analytical writing, verbal reasoning, and quantitative reasoning skills. The general test consists of three portions: verbal, quantitative, and analytical writing. The verbal and the quantitative tests each yield a separate score between 200-800. Scores on the analytical writing test are reported in ½-point increments along a scale of 0 to 6.

    Subject Tests measures achievement in eight specific fields of study. The Each Subject Test is intended for students who have majored in or have extensive background in that specific area.
    Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology
    Biology
    Chemistry
    Computer Science
    Literature in English
    Mathematics
    Physics
    Psychology
    This test also yields a score of from 200-800.

    It is important to score well in verbal and quantitative sections of the general test. Most schools look for a good score (atleast 550) in these sections.
