For the sixth installment in our series of posts of clips excerpt from Veritas Tutors’ Spring 2010 GRE Prep. class, Veritas tutor Kyle T. offers some pointers to students preparing specifically for the GRE’s Math portion.
On Real and Imaginary Numbers:
On Testing Numbers in the GRE’s Quantitative Comparisons:
In our last clips-installment, Spring 2010 GRE Prep. class-leader Kyle T. introduced the advanced strategy of “listening to” the GRE and letting its subtle instructions inform your problem-solving practices. In this post – as promised – the Veritas blog gladly presents Kyle’s more detailed explanation of what exactly this advanced strategy means for GRE-takers.
For our fourth installment of clips from Veritas Tutors’ Spring 2010 GRE Prep. class, we at Veritas have decided to deliver the best of GRE Math. In our last post, class-leader Kyle T. introduced some truly solid and illuminative strategies for approaching both Quantitative Comparison and Problem-Solving, the two major types of GRE Math question. Now, in this post, Kyle expounds on these strategies by explaining how to cleverly reframe challenging problems and then let these perspectival alterations positively inform your work. As Kyle himself says, “You need to know the material [tested by the GRE], but you really need to [...] get in[to] the head of the GRE. It’s going to get into your head at first, but you need to [...] get in[to its] head. [Then it's] like, ‘O! Cool, I see what you’re doing here.’” Adopting this downright smart approach to taking the GRE is an advanced strategy that Kyle will describe in greater detail in the blog’s next clips-installment.

Jumping off the theme of our last clips-installment, the Veritas blog is happy to now present a third installment of clips, excerpt from Veritas Tutors’ Spring 2010 GRE Prep. class. These new clips focus, as will all the clips to follow, on the FAQs central to taking the GRE and to succeeding in doing so. The three clips embedded in this post specifically address (1) working with the implications of the GRE’s computer-adaptive scoring system and (2) preparing for and approaching the Verbal, Math, and Writing portions of the GRE at the most basic levels.
