What's holding me back is the math portion. I am horrible at math, to say the least. The highest math course I ever took in high school was Algebra. I know that there is geometry and trigonometry, etc. on there and I wouldn't even know how to begin to do that sort of stuff, do you guys took any reference book like GRE test study guides which I got last month. And it's been so long since I took Algebra, I can't remember any of that stuff either. So, I've been thinking about taking some type of remedial math class this summer at a community college just to brush up on my math skills..
Kaplan's GRE math workbook is very good for prepping for the GRE general quant portion, from my experience.
The book provides a lot of examples and practice, but do yourself the a favor:
The problems are easy
. It's the timing that's difficult. Therefore, work large sections of problems in a sitting.
I worked through the majority of this book in the two or three days prior to the test (not saying you should wait until that long,
I had taken the test once prior at that point), and timing became a much less of an issue than it had been previously
