Preparation Course for GRE

GRE Course Continued .......

Options Available

There are many options available if you are preparing for GRE. The methods that work out to be cheap are self study with books, the purchase of tutor based software and also attending coaching programs that are available online. If you have the time and money to spend for coaching you can join a university offering some courses, an institute specialized in coaching programs or you can take up one to one coaching with an experienced and expert tutor.





It is not possible to replace a preparation course for GRE in a coaching institute with any alternate course type. Though online preparation courses may prove to be useful for the preparation for the test, it is difficult for such courses to compete with courses in institutes as they cannot provide the personal guidance that is possible in an institute where a teacher is physically present. Joining an institute offering coaching by experienced and expert tutors has its own advantages. You will benefit by understanding fully all the information related to the exam, you can develop more contacts with other students preparing for the test like you, this will keep you motivated, for the exams and tutors with their experience and expertise will help you understand difficult concepts in the subjects. It is important for you to select a coaching institute which has a library, because it may not be possible for you to buy all the books and materials. Further, in case it is not possible for you to attend a regular preparation course due to lack of any such institute close by or lack of time, online preparation can be tried.

You should join a good online  course, which is complete in all aspects and by no means is it less than a regular course. Modern technology has made it possible for online courses to provide facilities equivalent to those offered by regular classroom courses. It should provide tutorials, practice tests for all the sections and complete practice tests. It should have an interactive system where the experts at these web sites should be able to identify your weaknesses and give you the feedback to improve upon them. It should have provision for online tests which are close to the format (Computer Based Test or CBT) of real GRE. They should give you the experience of the real test since they are being conducted online.

Another good option for guidance for  preparation for the test can be in the form of a book. There are books in the market that provide you the complete content with sufficient number of practice tests and notes from experts. Some of the good books that can be helpful for the preparation for the test are, The Official Guide to the New Revised GRE, Barron's How to Prepare for the GRE, Kaplan GRE Exam 2011 Premier with CD-ROM and Cracking the New GRE with DVD, 2012 Edition by Princeton Review. Some of these books are accompanied by CDs with sample questions, answer keys and practice tests. Although good books can really help you to improve your score, you do not have an advantage of interacting with your teacher and getting his/her views about your performance which is possible in the above two formats.

Finally, it is not the  course that will get you a high score in the test but your own intelligence, efforts and sincerity that will help you score high in the test. However, you will certainly find support in a preparation program to organize your studies to achieve your goals especially if you select a good one.
