90 Day GRE Study Plan for Beginners


By Mike on March 5, 2012 in Study Guides and Plans

OK, you are starting more or less from scratch, and you want to prepare for the GRE in 90 days. You need a strategic plan to organize yourself. I designed four different versions of the 90 Day Plan, and I need you to start with a little self-diagnosis. Which sounds most like you?

A note on learning GRE vocabulary: first of all, its important not only to learn the literal dictionary definition (the denotation), but also to understand the metaphorical use of the word in context (the connotation). For example, the word opaque literally means not transparent, but metaphorically it can means hard to understand or, describing a person, it can mean thick-headed, stupid. Ultimately, you should strive to learn both the denotation and the connotation of each word. Nothing beats physical stacks of flashcards: You could have one pile for words whose denotation you are trying to master, another containing words for which you know the denotation but not the connotation, and a done stack that gets reviewed only rarely. Daily review of vocab is vital. I wrote this schedule recommending the Barrons 1100 Words as a basic word list, but if you have another vocab list you would like use as your starting point, use that. DO NOT limit yourself to just the Barrons words, or just the MGRE words. AS YOU READ and find more words you dont know, look them up, make flash cards (including context), and mix them into your piles.
A note on the prep books: %on&t write in any of the test prep 'ooks( 'eca se for any of them( after a period of time yo may want to go 'ack and do a pro'lem again that yo ha)en&t seen for a while* Yo can only start it fresh if the page is free of yo r marks* 2

This 90-day plan is demands a manageable pace that must be followed diligently so things dont get out of hand. Its designed to have you improve as much as you can improve in a three month period. I have designed twelve weeks, assuming 1-2 hours for each of the five weekdays, and one 4-5 stint on the weekend (Day Six). If you would prefer to work on both weekend days, and free up some weeknight time, feel free to make those changes. Also, as much as possible, get enough sleep during this month. REM sleep plays an important role in encoding long term memory, and in an eight hour period of sleep, the last hour has the most REM. If you are getting 7 hours/night instead of 8 hours/night, you are depriving your brain of one of its most powerful systems for learning and remembering. Caffeine and energy drinks will keep you feeling awake if you dont get enough sleep, but they dont do bupkis to replace the lost opportunity to encode more information into long term memory.

For each Magoosh problem, after you submit your answer, on the next page which tells you whether you were right or wrong, theres a video solution and below that a text summary. If you got the question right, skim the text summary to verify you got it right for the right reason. If you got the question wrong, see if you can figure out for yourself why the right answer is right. After thinking through it yourself, watch the video, taking notes in your journal about any concept or any aspect of the question type that was unclear to you

For topics, go to the ETS GRE Issue Pool (http://www.ets.org/gre/revised_general/prepare/analytical_writing/issue/pool) and the ETS GRE Argument Pool (http://www.ets.org/gre/revised_general/prepare/analytical_writing/argument/pool). Figure out a way to pick topics at random (maybe you print the lists, cut it into slips of paper, and choose some at random). Write the essays in a word processing program. Now that you have these essays, what do you do with them? If you have a friend or mentor who is a gifted writer, see if they would read the essays for you and critique them. If they are willing, you can show them the assessment criteria in the OG, and ask them to follow it. If you cant convince anyone else to read it, you may try posting them on that same GRE club forum, and see whether an expert there will critique your essay. Failing either of these options, at least you can set the essays aside, and in a couple days re-read them with the OGs rubric beside you.

McGraw-Hill, GRE Math section = 35 minutes After you are done, check all your answers. For any question you got right, skim the explanation to verify that you got it right for the right reason. For any question you got wrong, read the explanation thorough, taking notes in your journal on any concepts you didnt understand and anything about the question format that psyched you out. If you still cant make sense of the question after reading the explanation, email us at Magoosh. If you are doing much better than expected on either Math or Verbal, this might be a good time to consider whether you should switch to another version of the 3-month plan (see explanations of them at the top).
