GRE Preparation

A prominent question for those preparing for the GRE is how long you should prepare for the GRE, is one month enough or do you need more preparation time, say six months. Well, your duration of preparation depends on several factors-the the GRE scores you require for gaining admission into your target colleges, how long since you have passed out of school, your language skills, math skills, or your previous experience with standardized tests.

The period of preparation for the GRE is determined by a combination of these factors and is subjective. So how do you decide how long you will need to prepare for the GRE exam? Try and answer the following questions to determine the time you need.

Are you near the average score requirements?

To know whether you will be able to achieve the average score requirements of the programs you are applying for, you can take GRE practice tests to decide where you stand. This will help you determine how long you will need to prepare.

How good is your English?

Many GRE test takers do not have English as their first language, this factor may require more hours of preparation. If you have studied English throughout school, you may not face many difficulties while preparing for the exam. Non-native English speakers may find the GRE verbal section challenging and may require a longer period of preparation.

Do you have the habit of reading?

If you have the habit of reading good books, journals, and newspapers and have the habit of looking up the meanings of words you do not know, you need not spend much time preparing for the vocabulary section of the GRE because you are familiar with how vocabulary works in context.

How good are you in math skills?

Math is an important component of the GRE test, if you are not used to working on these skills daily, then you need more preparation for this section of the test.

What are the competition levels in the grad schools you are aiming for?

If the competition to get into your target grad schools is more, then you will need more focused preparation. Some programs will focus on your scores in one section of the test while others will look at your overall score for admission. So, check the requirements before you start your GRE preparation.

Do you understand standardized tests?

Tackling standardized tests require some unique skill sets.  You need to understand how the questions are created and how the answer choices can confuse you. The more you practice, you will develop an understanding of these aspects. This will help you reduce the time for preparation.

The answers to the above questions will help you do a self-analysis and determine the amount of time you need to prepare for the GRE test.
