Baby Rudin's Chapters 1-5 enough for the Math GRE?

Postby greedynripig » Mon Apr 22, 2019 4:21 pm

Hi all, I am self-studying for the Math GRE and I wanted to cover real analysis. I realized that the Math GRE isn't proof focused but is study focused. So, I need to master problem-solving and developing strong intuition, not necessarily proofs. Is the course taught at Harvey Mudd (i.e., http://analysisyawp.blogspot.com/2013/0 ... s.html?m=1) that covers chapter 1-5 of Baby Rudin enough to cover all the real analysis needed for the Math GRE?

I would do the course, then supplement with a bit more integration (mostly Riemann, but also know the definition of Lebesgue integration)

Thank you for your response! Any text you'd recommend that's useful to supplement with Rudin?

I think baby Rudin should cover it easily--if you need more examples, there's plenty of free stuff online.
