Mastery through focused learning

Imagine the following:

You’re preparing for the GRE, and you just finished learning the required properties and definitions for intersecting lines and parallel lines. You should now:

A) Answer practice questions specifically related to intersecting lines and parallel lines to better understand the nuances and intricacies of that specific subtopic.


B) Learn all of the required information about right triangles, similar triangles, quadrilaterals, circles, polygons, inscribed angles, cylinders, areas and volume, and then answer practice questions under the broad topic of Geometry.  

You already know the answer. 

To perform well on the GRE, students must understand that the test-makers can test your knowledge in nonstandard ways by taking straightforward concepts and twisting them into unique (sometimes unrecognizable) forms. By mastering one subtopic at a time, you’ll gain the conceptual flexibility needed to tackle unconventional questions of all shapes and sizes.

Each lesson in this course covers a small number of concepts, and beneath the lesson you’ll find tons of practice questions of varying difficulty that test only those concepts covered in the lesson. For example, beneath the lesson for Range and Standard Deviation, there are dozens of linked practice questions (categorized by difficulty) that test only those concepts related to Range and Standard Deviation. The same approach can be found in all of the lessons, including Quadratic Equations, Ratios, and Remainders

By learning, practicing and mastering one subtopic at a time, you’ll be better prepared for the wide variety of ways the GRE can evaluate your skills on test day.

Test Day Mindset

As part of your preparation, work on adopting the proper mindset/attitude on test day. This will do wonders for your score.
