Read an Excerpt


Congratulations to you who have graduated or are about to graduate college!
You are about to begin another great adventure. Before the journey starts, however,
you must take the Graduate Record Exam (GRE). This book is designed for you to
maximize your GRE math score. 

You can choose from two kinds of GRE. The first is a pencil-and-paper version, and
the second is the computer-based test, or CBT, taken completely on a computer. The
differences in test-taking strategy on these two versions are discussed in Chapter 15. 

The format of the GRE is similar to that of the SAT. The GRE has multiple-choice
questions with five choices. It also has quantitative comparisons in which you are
given two choices, one in column A and one in column B. You answer A if A is bigger;
B if B is bigger, C if they are equal, and D if you can’t tell. Less than five hours after I
submitted the original manuscript for this book to the publisher, the GRE surprised
me with a new type of question for the CBT version: the fill-ins. You must answer
these questions without being given any choices. 

The GRE is different from the SAT as well. Calculators are not permitted. No formulas
are given. The GRE asks many more questions on charts and graphs than does the
SAT. The level of the math is lower (yes, lower) than the level on the SAT. Without
permitting calculators, then, the GRE asks more arithmetic questions. 

Some of you have not done much math or arithmetic for many years. I recently met
with a local congressman about improving the math in this country. I hope it was
successful. His uniqueness is that he had a doctorate in physics. In our discussion, he
looked at some of my material and my other books in basic algebra and basic calculus.
He had forgotten some of the material. If he can forget, you might also. 

Each chapter of this book has three parts. First, there is a summary of the facts you
need to know, together with examples. Second, there is instruction on how to do
the work. In some chapters, there is very little; in others, there is more. You will be
shown techniques to streamline your arithmetic. Sometimes there are ways to do
no arithmetic at all, even though it appears you need to. Third, there are lots and lots
of questions for you to do, together with the answers. The end of the book, Chapters
16 through 18, presents practice tests to see how well you are doing, including
answer keys. Chapter 19 presents some pointers and provides a practice test for the
new type of fill-in questions for the computer-based version of the GRE. 

Always remember: your goal is not a perfect score. It is a score high enough to get
you into the program of your choice. So, that is the goal of this book. 
Good luck on the GRE! 
Bob Miller 

If you need an extra boost of math prep before you feel confident enough to tackle
the math portion of the GRE General, this book is for you! 

Depending on where you are on your educational pathway, some of you haven’t
seen math in a very long time. Maybe that’s why you chose this test prep—for
its easy-to-understand math practice and reinforcement. As you read through
this book you may find that you know the material in some of the chapters pretty
well—and others, not so much. Those are the areas on which you’ll need to focus. 

Before you pick up your pencil and start studying, read the introduction and
become familiar with the math portion of the GRE. Make sure you understand how
the test is conducted, and know the type and style of questions that will be asked. 

Every day, devote at least an hour (or perhaps two hours, depending on your
math skills) to studying the math concepts presented in this book. At first—just
like starting an exercise plan—it will be hard. But after a few days, studying will
become a natural part of your routine. Find a study routine that works for you and
stick to it! Some people like to get up early and study for an hour or two before
going to work. Others might choose to study while commuting, on their lunch
hour, at the library, or at home after work. Whatever schedule you choose, make a
commitment to study every day —even on weekends. 

Go through each chapter and try some of the practice problems. If you find them
to be very easy, skip to the next chapter. Whenever you find a chapter that is not so
easy, take your time and study the chapter in detail. After you have gone through
the chapters that you think give you the most problems, go back and study the
remaining chapters. Practical math tips are included in all the chapters, and they
will help you solve math problems quickly and more easily.

When you have a good grasp of the material, try the first practice test. Give yourself
plenty of time and work in a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed. After you’ve
finished the practice test, check your answers. If you find there are some types
of questions (such as quadrilaterals) that you constantly get wrong, restudy the
appropriate review chapter and practice problems. 

After you’ve finished restudying any areas of weakness, repeat the process with
the remaining two practice tests. Keep reviewing the math topics that give you
trouble until you feel comfortable with the material. In just a matter of weeks, your
math skills will improve and you’ll be ready for the GRE!

    Helped me get an almost perfect score!

    I'm saddened by a few previous reviews on this book, although I might be able to see where they're coming from: At first glance this book seems too silly and almost elementary to be of any real use. It's unquestionable that Bob Miller keeps the reader entertained with jokes and silly puns throughout the book, but at times I wondered "It can't really be this simple and lighthearted...can it?"

    Well, I just got back from the GRE a few hours ago and made a nearly perfect Quant score...all thanks to Bob Miller here.

    Take my advice: Sit down with a highlighter, a pen, and a stack of Post-It flags and read this like a novel from start to finish. Take an active interest in the text and your score will not disappoint. Thanks, Bob!
