Unlike most books and companies, we do not believe that great GRE scores and serious improvement come from learning a few clever test-taking strategies. Such strategies may have been enough 15 years ago, but the GRE has grown increasingly “self aware” over the years, and its makers have taken serious pains to minimize the usefulness of “gaming” the exam.
In our opinion, the key to great scores and improvement is real “know-how”. This know-how is not something that can be learned over the course of a weekend. But it is much simpler than you might think, and anyone can do it if they put in the time and dedication.
The prospect of acquiring such know-how may be daunting, but you’ll be surprised how easily it can be learned when someone teaches it to you properly. You’ll also be surprised exactly how powerful and effective knowing how to do things the “right way” can be. Problems that seem daunting and complicated can be remarkably easy. Problems that seem to require great math skills and a lot of time can be done amazingly quickly.
