TestPrep

Postby azizali » Wed Mar 09, 2016 12:26 am

Hi
Im a mature student currently preparing for GRE Math mostly using princeton, schaum books, symbolab and wolfram for practice.
I think the available mock questions arent enough for me and was looking at other options
1. Has anyone ever tried the quiz bank from Kaplan http://www.kaptest.com/gre/practice/practice-options ?
No indication whether these questions are for general gre or subject math... I have read that the kaplan 'advanced' math book is badly edited though...
2. Any opinions on subjectmath.com? (not so pricey so i might try it...)
3. Anyone has recommendations for other mock exams?

Kaplan does not do math subject test GRE prep. That site is for the general GRE.

As for subjectmath.com, user DMAshura gave a pretty detailed review on this site: viewtopic.php?t=3511. I think some users noticed that the site creator, Gilad Pagi, had given himself fake reviews to "increase" the legitimacy of the site. Here are some instances:

viewtopic.php?t=3451
viewtopic.php?t=3394

Based off of DMAshura's post, the site itself doesn't seem like a scam, but it's still shady and I wouldn't purchase anything the guy has to offer.

I used the princeton review book. I sucked at diffeqs, so I memorized that stuff. Everything else I just skimmed over. I also went over the 4 old exams. The two modern ones were similar in difficulty to the real thing. The two older ones were a complete joke (I could do half of the problems in my head without writing anything down). I also went through one exam in the REA book. It's mostly overly hard, but there were a few good problems in there.

I think it's a pretty hard test to cheat. Meaning, the only way to do well is to actually know your stuff. Hopefully this comes from years of studying math, especially calculus and linear algebra.

And I think there's now a 5th exam available, which is more or less the same test I took.
