    I will be reappearing for GRE to apply this year for PhD programs. Can you suggest when should I apply for GRE: October or early November? Since, I have been caught in a lot of others things as well, its getting hard for me to prepare for the exam. Last when I applied my score was 290. This time 320 is my target score. Can you suggest as to how I can best prepare for this?


    Magoosh is really helpful.

      Hi Arushi,

      Knowing when to take the GRE is a delicate balance–on the one hand you need to give yourself adequate time to prepare, and on the other hand you need to make sure that you are done with your GRE with enough time to craft a strong grad school application! We generally recommend that students finish with their standardized tests at least a month before their first deadline so that they can have adequate time to prepare their application 🙂

      Studying for the exam on your own can be difficult, especially when you are busy and have many other things on your plate! Using a structured program can help you to keep on track and organize your studying so that you don’t miss anything. Since you like our website, I recommend that you try our 7-day free trial. Magoosh provides comprehensive video lessons and practice questions that will prepare you for the test, and study schedules to organize your time efficiently. This might help you to focus on your studies and prepare 🙂 Since you are looking for a large score increase, it is imperative that you study from high quality resources and use your time well.

      I encourage you to check out this blog post for more tips on how you can structure your retake studies!

    I was wondering if you might have any suggestions for podcasts or anything similar that I could listen to while commuting to help me prepare for the GRE. I spend 3 hours a day commuting in the car and I’d love to find a way to use that time more effectively. Do you know of any GRE vocab podcasts or recordings?

      Hey Zoe! I commute a lot to college too and usually listen to NPR Podcasts such as TED Radio hour, Hidden Brain and TED talks. They’re great resources on their own. Although I’ve come across one called Nick’s Knack for Neologisms which is also suitable for anyone looking to build their vocabulary for the GRE. Hope that helped. 🙂
