Study Guide Review
McGraw-Hill’s latest offering for the GRE provides a systematic guide to surmounting the test. Beginning with the provision of a diagnostic test, which allows test takers to identify their shortcomings, this book covers each of the aspects of the GRE by providing a review of substantive concepts, examples of each of the different questions types a test taker may encounter, as well as tips and tricks for navigating the specific section.
In addition, this study guide provides specific tools for engaging with the analytical writing tasks. Of particular note are the five additional full-length sample GRE tests – with answer explanations – it offers (in addition to the diagnostic test). This enables test takers to practice, practice, practice and hone their GRE test taking skills.
McGraw Hill has also fully embraced technology with this book by offering test takers access to the Premium Practice Test App, which enables students not only to take full practice tests on their tablets or smartphones, but also provides access to 20 instructional videos on selected GRE topics. It also helps students develop study schedules through use of the McGraw-Hill Test Planner App.
Providing helpful, easy-to-understand explanations and interspersing strategies, Preparation for the GRE Test is extremely reader-friendly and useful for improving GRE skills. These qualities, combined with the digital online apps, make this title one of the best GRE prep books currently available.
