GRE Study Music

I don’t know about you, but I can’t study without my music. While I’m a fan of the classical (Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata will help me get through even the toughest of text completions), some of you may prefer a more upbeat tune. Enter the following sites! Below are 3 great resources to help you DJ your study session. Enjoy!

1. Stereomood – This website (and app!) prompts you to “turn your mood into music.” Simply type in your mood (or what you’re currently up to) and Stereomood takes you to a playlist filled with songs to fit your mood. “Studying,” “calm,” and “focus” are all good choices when studying for the GRE!

2. Songza – Songza, also both a website and an app, allows you to choose your music based on both the time of day and what you’re doing. For example, when I visit Songza at 3:50pm on a Wednesday, it tells me “It’s Wednesday Afternoon, play music for:” and lists several possible activities. I’m working (on this post! :)) at that time, and so I choose the “Working (no lyrics)” option.  I’m then given several awesome playlists to choose from!

3. RainyMood – Adding the sound of rain to soothing music, RainyMood will help keep you calm during those frustrating quant problems!

By the way, students who use Magoosh GRE improve their scores by an average of 8 points on the new scale (150 points on the old scale.) Click here to learn more.
