Hi Chris !

I have been following your blog for some time and I am quite impressed. I had a query about GRE. In one your earlier posts, you said something like if one performs well in the 1st test of a section, say Verbal, he gets a tougher set of questions in the next 30-min test of Verbal. Is this not penalizing for doing better ! He must be getting some bonus points ? Can you please elucidate this problem.

Your profound insights have persuaded me quite cogently and I am looking forward to take a short term program of Magoosh about a month before my exam.

Hi Harshith,

Thanks for the positive words :).

As for the GRE, unfortunately the bonus is the more difficult section. Essentially, the first section is to separate scorers into different groups. I suppose the bonus for those receiving the tougher section is they have the chance of receiving a perfect score. No such glory awaits those who move on to the easier section.

Thanks for writing, and let me know how your experience with the Magoosh program goes :).

Hi Chris,

Thanks for such a great help from you guys. Actually i’m unable to make (in practise tests) good score in Verbal section. I’ll be appearing for my GRE on 10th July 2012. So do suggest me what to do with my verbal section.

Regards,

Abhishek

Hi Abhishek,

To better answer your question, tell me: what have you done so far to prepare for the Verbal section? Also, what materials have you used? Finally, which area are you struggling the most on?

Hi Chris,

Thanks for your reply.

Done so far & Material Used:

Prepared verbal section from Jamboree Material (including word lists) and now started using your GRE-Vocab-Ebook. I know the strategies and tactics but due to LACK of vocab, unable to score high.

Struggling With:

I’m trying to learn words from past several days but when i see those words again, i’m unable to recall.

for RC, somehow i got uncomfortable while reading long passages or due to lack of vocab- misunderstands the statement.

But i would like to share one thing that, after reading your blogs and following your PREPARATION PLAN for 1 month (i’m following this plan from past one week) there r some improvement areas.

Before that, i got always wrong in SC’s & SE’s. Whatever i’m scoring is all from RC & Critical section. But from past 2 weeks : for one blank- i can figure out the correct one (but need more practice); for 2 & 3 blanks- i always get 1 or 2 correct and other one wrong. same for SE’s.

Please do help.

Regards,

Abhishek

Hi Abhishek,

Yes, I think it is definitely a question of practice. Unlike math, in which once you understand a concept it like a sudden click, learning vocabulary takes lots of time and patience. You will be unable to recall words on many occasions. The key is repetition. Finally the words will start to stick and the SE and TC will seem much easier.

Keep up the good work 🙂

Thanks for help Chris…

Will do implement the same and let you know…

🙂
