Find the Right Answer

The GRE has a few Right Answers surrounded by lots of wrong answers.

Testing for the Public has developed strategies for our GRE review courses that are designed to find the Right Answer, rather than waste time eliminating wrong answers.

You will learn how questions are written, edited, and disguised in the answer grid. You will be able to use this knowledge to find the Right Answer and reassure yourself that it is the Right Answer.

Learn Multiple-Choice Math

The GRE has two 35-minute Quantitative section with 20 items. Approximately one-fourth will be five-option multiple-choice math items.

Testing for the Public boils down the basic math facts into three simple pages. Students enrolled in our GRE prep class will also have online access to a full color printable Math Facts library with slide shows reviewing Arithmetic, Geometry, and Algebra.

Much more importantly, it shows students how the answer grid includes the Right Answer, as well as the predictable wrong answers.

You will learn to use this simple fact to attack multiple-choice math items.
You can learn to avoid stupid mistakes and discover how the wrong answers point to the Right Answer. Whatever your math ability, multiple-choice math strategies can raise your GRE Quantitative score. You can get a 2-hour Math Strategies DVD to get started right away.

Compare Quantities Intelligently

The GRE has two 35-minute Quantitative section with 20 items. Approximately one-third will be four-option quantitative comparison items.

Testing for the Public shows how the format of the quantitative comparison items makes them easy to solve. Since you are only given two quantities to compare and four answer choices, the format is as important as the basic math.

You will learn how to take advantage of the inherent limitations of the quantitative comparison format. You will look forward to complicated computations.

Look for the GRE Vocabulary

The GRE has two 30-minute Verbal section with 20 questions, including approximately ten text completion items.

Testing for the Public has compiled a complete and accurate list of every word that has actually appeared on an the officially disclosed GRE Analogy and Antonym items administered until July 2011. The Analogy and Antonym items have disappeared, but the GRE vocabulary list is still valuable because the GRE vocabulary hasn't changed. This list includes the number of times the word has appeared on the test. The favorite words are easy to locate.
In order to make vocabulary review even more productive, Testing for the Public has compiled a list of Synonyms that can come in handy as you learn Latin-based, Greek-based, and Anglo-Saxon-based words that all mean the same thing.

During our GRE preparation class, you will learn to spot the favorite GRE words, as well as the double meanings for simple words. You will learn what language origins are favored in Right Answers.

Read Less to Learn More

The GRE has two 30-minute Verbal section with 20 questions, including reading comprehension passages and questions with various Answer formats.

Testing for the Public recognizes that these passages are often boring and unnecessarily complicated.

You will learn how to quickly find the relevant information in the passage and ignore the irrelevant distractions.
You will discover how the questions point to the Right Answer.

Learn to Avoid Test Bias

The GRE has questions and passages about women and minority groups that are inserted to satisfy diversity specifications.

Testing for the Public has discovered that these materials actually present potential obstacles for the very applicants that are supposedly reassured by these passages.

During our GRE prep course, you will learn how to recognize potential bias in the answer choices.
Our strategies are designed to directly confront such potential bias.
