Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by Nobody: 1:04pm On Dec 20, 2014
Ample study time, over three months, lots of advice was sought from past takers, marked determination and I had to shirk girls too.lol
The time I had made me have access to eclectic set of resources.
1. For blogs, I was always checking through magoosh and prepcrunch. If I know how good magoosh was, I would have subscribed for the premium package, just 15k. Got to know barely a month to my exam after my first powerprep practice test. Was shocked to have 151v 153q. E be like film. Also, the facebook group was invaluable. I solved questions from various sources there. Try and start practice tests early enough. I took the risk of delaying it due to proscastination which almost cost me. Get manhattan tests for barely 5k and start doing them early, one per month at least.
2. I started out with Barron and Kaplan. I bought both hard copies at cms. During this time, I also had soft copies of Nova and priceton/cracking the gre. The challenge then was there was no stable supply in my area to read the soft copies on my lappy, the cost of fuel was becoming a huge burden. I also used gruber and they have very wonderful strategies. To solve the power ish, I had to relocate to Ife where power dey wella. Nice ambience, superfluous power supply, what else?
The king of all materials for me was the manhattan 8 books, which I was only opportuned to go through in about a week, due to time constraints. In addition with manhattan 5lb, these moved my quant score from 153 to 156 when I took the second powerprep. But I was still perturbed as my target was at least 160 in Q.
After my second pp, I did not care about my verbal section again. I went to the file section of the fb group and downloaded:
...the official gre guide by ets
....two other books from ets that contain questions for both verbal and quant
....I went through 5lb over and over again. Bought a jotter and wrote questions that were tricky there. This jotter was my companion a week to the test.

Test day: The anxiety before the test day na die. Anybody that says he was not a bit nervous just dey form bravado. I already swore to retake in feb if I had less than 160 in Q. My area is quite far from the central part of lag, na ijegun after ikotun. I had to go and stay with a family friend at lawanson, surulere the previous night. Unfortunately, mosquitoes did not make me get more than 3hr sleep, maybe coupled with anxiety sha. I left home for obanikoro by six like say na by first to reach go determine who go pass. By seven, i had got to JKK, my center. No one was even there.
Strolling around, I went to a bus stop and sat with some boys at a motor garage smoking igbo. I returned to the center by nine and I met so many people also there for the test. We were checked in after extensive briefing of the rules.
On getting to 38A, my desk, I started my test. Writing was ok. Na the argument task wan tough small. I could articulate the author's conclusion quickly enough.
Luckily, quant was the first section I encountered. The questions were quite fair, just lenghty. I rushed through them in less than twenty five mins, making sure I got the three graph questions. I went through each question again, not resolving. I used my calculations on my scratch paper to check and discovered more than 3 silly errors. The verbal na die especially RC. The people wey dey set those RCs na saddist. I just calmly did it sha. I even hide time sef.
The next Q section hard die. I just dey sweat inside AC. I tenaciously solved as many as I could sha. The next verbal was ok. Then the experimental section was Q too, that was ultra hard. I just dey laugh sey if they grade me on this last section alone, I would barely make 150.
I viewed the scores and I was elated. The verbal scores no too make me happy o but I bone joor. I almost forgot to even send scores sef. Na the examiner talk sey 'will not send your scors?'
I sent my scores to my intended schools and left the test center.

My hand don almost break...typing with nokia palasa na die. I hope you intending test takers prepare better and score far higher. I am giving back my experience because I believe it is my duty to do so. Good luck my people.

There are a lot of books that cannot be sent to your mail. You should try to search for them online. I would help you with some links when I get my lappy back. Also the fb group has a lot of those files.

Boot the system via safemode and uninstall any recently installed software. That might help.

Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by Nobody: 11:30pm On Dec 20, 2014
The six online based tests by manhattan. It is believed to be the best besides the powerprep.
The manhattan 8 are a set of strategy guides that comprehensively cover the GRE curriculum. There are 8 of them.
