Review ETS’ Official GRE Super Power Pack
Unlike the Kaplan or Princeton Review or even the Manhattan Prep books, the ETS ones are definitely the ones that come closest to the testing experience you will encounter for your GREs. Given that they are the test makers, I would highly recommend that you invest in mastering these questions toward the end of your prep. While the books are great for test prep, they do not provide much in terms of strategy.
For those preparing for GREs on their own without a prep course (I didn’t take one and I was fine. All you need is the right materials and determination. You’ll save yourself thousands of dollars!), I would recommend:
-Downloading the Magoosh vocabulary app on your phone. It’s free
-Reading through the Magoosh website for their free materials (they give sample essays and grades as well as tips and advice)
-Borrowing the most up-to-date GRE prep books from your public library (Manhatten Prep workbooks and Kaplan are highly recommended)
-Take a diagnostic test and find your weaknesses (which types of questions do you tend to get wrong)
-Use the 5lb GRE Practice questions by Manhatten Prep and focus on your weaknesses.
-Use this powerpack to familiarize yourself with actual test questions.
