How did you prepare for the RCs? I gave mock test one and I didn't do well on the RCs only. Which material did you use? Plus if you used Greg's platform, which videos did you watch for RC?


Whole_Tough8692

preparation of Rc:- gregs season 3 on Rc and his youtube videos to see how he solves them this gave me a brief idea about it. **Practice will make you accurate so you have to devote time to Rc thats it.** Advise for low mock score:- As it is your first mock its okay to get a low score and too many wrong questions that's a sign that you need to prepare for Rc and practice them. For me i always use to read a para and note down what it is tryint to point out is it useful or it is vague. Some words are important remember this .... It's Greg's formula to solve it .... Use the hammer to get the main idea of the passage ... I've solve this particular passage in 4 mins with answers... Practice more and more ... Are you taking notes while reading RC ? If yes then you have to use techniques for it how to make short notes and how will they help you .. focus on words like but , however , Recent analysis , the RC has how many theories for example there is one theory of Albert Einstein sir in RC and after that they have proposed second theory then check if it's contradicting with the first ... Check the theory that it has experimental results or Theoretical... This is all for scientific passages ... For long RC read first paragraph and understand it ... Second paragraph read first three lines and then move on to last few lines in between look for the words I mentioned above they are called hammer ... And so on till last paragraph I would say emphasize more on last and first paragraph more ... I've practiced 23 test of big book and it's good for practice don't change your method now then stick to one .... If you want more understanding check Greg's YouTube videos they are like gold .... Practice Materials:- Big Book for Rc all ppplus Rc from Gre.Kmf and all ets materials.

iamkeysersoze94

wow.. thanks so much..


Whole_Tough8692

here you go bro!


asifrezwanbd

great score and congratulations man! I'm happy for you~ I can't agree more that PRACTICE BIG BOOK! it's gold (as Greg says haha)


Whole_Tough8692

yeah man i followed him.


asifrezwanbd

that's why you got a nice score haha I hope future test takers follow this~


Whole_Tough8692

yeah man they should definitely follow.


zola2088

what is the big book?


asifrezwanbd

You search with 'Big Book' on google, you'll find it


theguyyouignore

Practice big book for quants or verbal?


asifrezwanbd

Definitely for Verbal!! because the verbal question difficulty level is on par with current tests. But for quant is also okay to understand the question patterns. But big book tests for quant are on the easier side (way easier I might add) than current test. Although you can choose to practice only the HARD questions (the questions with less than 30-40% correct answer rate)


Aniket_Kulkarni1234

Hey!! Congratulations!Was the quant level similar to PPP test or easier?!! and what was the level of difficulty of Statistics and word problems?!


Whole_Tough8692

I would say Quant and verbal both were similar in the terms of logic. however, quant was trickier and wordy. first section was medium i guess in first section in quant i got 20/20 but oh man in second section i had to guess 4-5 of the questions. and was running low on time. for stat just watch gregs video and solve manhattan problems thats enough. Word problems were wordy but once you understand them they become easier alot. i had one sequence question too and bruh it was mind boggling i never saw that anywhere. im trying to jot down some of the questions which were difficult.

Whole_Tough8692

i gave my pp1 after 7 days of learning basics only. after learning 17 list of vocab and solving Ets Verbal book i gave pp2 and i scored ver low after that i thought i should do timed practice only so , i started solving big book for Verbal and some Quant questions also. for easy questions i would give like 30 sec for solving this is for quant. after all this i solved ppplus which was damn beneficial.


ImmediateChance5548

Wow you went from PP tests 270+ to 332? That’s impressive. Goes on to show that the mock tests are not entirely representative of the actual score, for when we first take it some might get anxious and their minds just go blank.


Whole_Tough8692

excatly bro ! You just got my point... while PPPlus verbal is damn close to Real Gre. Each Test is unique in its own way so i just thought i should be flexible with every question. yeah bro this were my real score at first but im happy with all the practice and outcome.


Pretty_Man_111999

Congratulations!!! Are you sure Gregmat's word list is enough? Did you not come across any new words?


Whole_Tough8692

yes bro im sure.... there were few words which i didnt even know. For example in a question you have 4 options in that i totally knew that i was confident with 3 words so i can just use POE for the last option hence it becomes easier.


Unhappy-Ebb9374

Brother. In the qaunt section. I’m a bit struggling with integer and primes questions. Suggest me so that i can do even more better. By the way your post is too positive


Whole_Tough8692

Hey bro thanks . Try to watch greg video and his Practice sums on in his website are enough moreover have you solved Manhattan topics ? and if yes then go on greprep club and you can get more of the questions. for Integers and prime i had overall 5 questions in my exam 2 or 3 were in QC and another were problem solving based.


flashingthisearth

Hi, congratulations on your score. You solved Quants from Big Book ? is it useful ?


Whole_Tough8692

yes some of the questions off geometry were really useful.


flashingthisearth

Ohkay


rukia941

Would you say 5Lb is good for quant practice?


Whole_Tough8692

yes definitely. its not real represenatative of Gre but its good for warmup and it has some good sums so i would definetly recommend it.


Safe_Force_3991

Congrats on getting the amazing score. Will u be able to provide a link to the gre.kmf website for the PPP that you had mentioned? And thanks for the beautiful RC notes.


Whole_Tough8692

its okay dude yeah here you go :- [https://gre-kmf-com.translate.goog/explain/source/243.html?\_x\_tr\_sl=zh-CN&\_x\_tr\_tl=en&\_x\_tr\_hl=en-GB&\_x\_tr\_pto=nui,sc](https://gre-kmf-com.translate.goog/explain/source/243.html?_x_tr_sl=zh-CN&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=en-GB&_x_tr_pto=nui,sc) thanks bro


Safe_Force_3991

Thank You so much. The website seems to be working very slow. Might there be a problem at my end or is the website usually this slow? Also,I might be asking a bit much, but do you also have similar notes for TC & SE and quant. It would be a big help. Thanks
