Update 6/25/15: The signups are now closed! You guys responded so quickly and with such gusto that we don’t need any more participants for now :). We will update the post if we need any more interviews in the future. Thanks for all your help! Hi, Magoosh blog readers! Do you meet the following requirements? […]
Not sure if anybody can guess the theme based on the title. Nope, this week is not about words dealing with greetings. The theme is actually GRE words that end in ‘o’. You wouldn’t think there are many such words, but I’ve actually been able to corral quite a few!
When I hear that a test prep company has released a new edition of its book, my usual response is, “So whose face is on the cover this year?” Even after half a decade of several glossy new editions—and a revolving door of glossy smiles—the content in test prep books remains unchanged, and my cynicism […]
I often encourage students to read articles from the New York Times to improve their ability to understand complex vocabulary functioning in a rich context. Not every article quite fits that description, so a willy-nilly approach to the New York Times reading won’t always bear such lexical fruit.

Our friends at Accepted share just how much parent involvement is TOO much! I’ve been working in graduate admissions for almost 20 years so I have witnessed this trend firsthand: Parents are playing a much larger role in the application process these days than they used to. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing – parents […]
I thought I’d add a little twist to this week’s word list. Since the words are taken from an article, it allows me to actually take phrases (or at least word pairings) that might be difficult to understand. It’s a little experiment, but it might end up being helpful, especially since the GRE is […]
Last summer, ETS released a massive file called A Compendium of Studies, a 279-page document of GRE esoterica. There understandably wasn’t much fanfare surrounding this release, as this is some pretty dry, technical stuff (the GRE reading passages are fun, by contrast). Nonetheless, I’m guessing some of you might have stumbled across it and wondered […]
Welcome back! Today, we’ll go over Tuesday’s Brain Twister problem.
