GRE Test Preparation Guide for International Students

If you are an international student, then prepping for GRE seems like a very daunting task. Here is a very brief GRE test preparation guide for you:

  1. Get yourself a passport. Yes, you need a passport as an international student to prepare for GRE.
  2. The next thing you need to do is register yourself on a GRE website. You will need to fill in your complete name, date of birth, and other details. Make sure all the details match your passport.
  3. Now comes the mundane task, read all the rules on a GRE website. Get to know all the details, including test format, sections, percentiles, verbal, and other information. Equip yourself with all the details, the ins, and the outs of the test.
  4. Get your hands on a good GRE prep book. A good book typically covers everything from verbal to mathematic. It gives you a great idea about how the questions will be prefaced.
  5. Work on your verbal skills and vocabulary. A great way to do that is to read a lot. It doesn’t seem like much work and helps build up your vocabulary. If you don’t know the meaning of a particular word, look it up in a dictionary. Try to use it in your conversation next time you speak.
  6. Make use of practice questions. These will help you test what you have learned and gear you up for the test in the right way.
  7. Take a mock test without any distractions once you have prepared thoroughly for the GRE test. If you get to score more than 290, you are good. Anything less than that means you need to work on your prep.
  8. Once you are confident enough, register for the GRE test online and make the payment. Make sure you register for a suitable date. Expect to get the test in about 35 days from the registration date. Plan your schedule accordingly.
  9. Revision is important. Once you have registered, it is time to start revising all the content you have prepared already. Trust me, you will thank yourself later.
  10. Last but not least. Work on your confidence. You have prepared well, and you can ace it. Go into the test room with assurance, and you will get the desired score.

Final Thoughts

Lastly, my advice would be to get help from an online GRE course. It is easy, affordable, and very convenient. You can take the classes in your own time at your convenience. Moreover, you can also learn at your own pace.

If certain parts of the GRE need more attention, you can focus on that particular area. An online course coupled with a book will work miracles for you.
