Most recent test takers have faced 2-4 probability/combination questions in their GRE Exam.
This is one subject that is unfortunately, not covered well in the commonly available GRE prep books.
And some of the specialist books go way above the level required for the GRE, resulting in wasted effort that does not result in a higher score.
Here is some study material on these Topics that is GRE specific and will help you with your GRE prep.
If you want to do further practice on these topics, you should definitely go through the 'GRE Math for Winners'. This guide exclusively covers these five topics in detail.
Unique Features of the 'GRE Math for Winners - Probability, Permutation/Combination, Numbers, Statistics, Sequence & Series'
- Focus on the difficult GRE Math topics that are not covered well in Standard books.
(Five Topics are covered: Number Theory, Statistics, Probability, Permutation/Combination, Sequence/Series)
- All Theory & Questions based around the Actual GRE questions that have appeared on these topics in the recent past.
- Over One hundred Solved problems with detailed explanations.
- No Superfluous Material. You study ONLY what is required for the GRE. No learning difficult concepts or theories that will never get tested on the GRE.
- Instant Delivery: Since this is a Kindle Book, you will be able to download it instantaneously after you have made the payment.
- A Comprehensive list of over One Hundred Formulae covering the following Topics:
I. Algebraic Formulae
II. Even and Odd Numbers
III. HCF & LCM
IV. Surds and Indices
VII. Simple Interest and Compound Interest
VIII. Quadratic Equations
X. Time, Speed and Distance
XIII. Permutations and Combinations
XIV. Co-ordinate Geometry
XVI. Set Theory
XVII Plane Figures
XVIII Solid Figure
Of course you do not have to memorize all these formulae by heart. It is enough if you can derive them from some of the basic formulae.
Familiarity with these formulae is Critical because a majority of GRE problems are based around these.
If you are already familiar with the usage of these formulae, you should be able to tackle any GRE Quant problem with confidence and ease.
Most GRE Winners know at Least 90% of these formulae by heart and are able to derive the others.
This provides a tremendous sense of confidence going into the exam.
Why Should you Buy this Guide?
If you are aiming at 99 Percentile in the GRE Math, you need to cover ALL the Topics well.
There have been innumerable instances, where students get a Probability or a Stats Question in the first 10.
As you well know, getting a single question wrong in the first 10 can jeopardise your chances of a good score.
This guide has been specifically written to supplement the Standard prep Books available in the market.
It includes questions similar to the ones that have appeared in the GRE in the recent past, especially at the 90 percentile+ level.
You will NOT find these questions either in the Official Guide or in the Standard Prep Books.
In fact, these topics are pretty much simply ignored because they are usually (but Not always) asked at a higher score level, and the official guide and the standard prep books target the 50-70 percentile score audience.
Also, the Formulae in the guide comprise a comprehensive list of formulae that the New GRE questions are based around.
Most GRE Winners know these formulae by heart and are well versed with how to apply them.
This gives them a Big advantage during the exam.
While the commonly available books provide a list of formulae, they are by no means comprehensive, more so since these books are Not targeted at a 90 percentile+ audience.
This guide was originally prepared exclusively for students who take private coaching.
