The costs of studying for the GRE exam and applying to graduate school can add up. So, why not make the most of all the internet has to offer with free GRE resources?
Top 5 Free GRE Resources
1. ETS Powerprep Tests – Free online practice tests from the test-makers themselves. Need I say more? Use these to get a feel for not only the content of the GRE, but also the basics of the exam- how the calculator works, how to flag and return to questions, etc. For a comparison of the various free and paid ETS resources, check out our ETS GRE Practice Tests vs. Powerprep vs. Offical Guide post.
2. Magoosh’s GRE Vocabulary Flashcards– Our GRE vocabulary flashcards cover more than 1000 of the most important GRE vocab words. You can either download the app or use the desktop version.
3. Manhattan GRE Practice Test – Manhattan is a reputable source of GRE information, so this practice test is of a very high standard. Complete with explanations!
4. Khan Academy – Khan Academy is a great place to learn about…pretty much anything. While there isn’t a section specifically dedicated to GRE Prep, you’ll still find plenty of material that is really helpful for your studies, in particular math. Just search for the concept you’re having trouble with, and my guess is you’ll find a video that explains it perfectly.
5. ETS Essay Topic Pools, Argument and Issue – ETS provides the entire pool of tasks from which your essay prompt will be selected. That’s right–the ENTIRE pool, meaning you will see one of these topics on your actual exam. Practice writing essays with these prompts.
