101 Ways to Score Higher on Your GRE is much more than a study guide. It serves as your own personal coach through the graduate school and GRE preparation process. I recommend this book with confidence to a wide range of students because author Angela Eward-Mangione takes a holistic approach towards the GRE test preparation journey. 101 Ways to Score Higher on Your GRE places your GRE score within the context of your overall admissions plan and professional goals. In case you are still hazy about what you want to do with your life, this book offers several challenging questions so that you can develop a well-thought-out plan and make educated decisions about whether applying to graduate school is the right thing for you to do and, if so, which fields and graduate programs you should apply to. Then, once you have a vision for your future and have committed to taking the GRE, this book leads you through the often complicated application process by offering solid advice in crafting your overall application package. Are you unsure about what to include in your personal statement? This book will get you brainstorming about your goals so that the task of writing an application essay is no longer so daunting. And, of course, 101 Ways to Score Higher on Your GRE provides an excellent overview of how to prepare for the GRE. You will find strategies for each question type and a handy GRE vocabulary list, as well as some commonly-tested concepts and tried-and-true strategies to tackle the math section. This section is an excellent jump-start to preparing for the GRE and should be used as a companion guide to a more detailed quantitative and verbal review. A fantastic feature of the book is the chapter on reducing test anxiety. Getting in the right frame of mind is often overlooked by students who are already overwhelmed by the prospect of taking the GRE and the application process in general. This book not only provides a blueprint for organizing your application and the GRE preparation process, but it also gives you a brief do-it-yourself anxiety reduction method to put you in the right frame of mind so that you can get started right away. Finally, 101 Ways to Score Higher on Your GRE is written from a first-person perspective with anecdotes about preparing for and taking the GRE, with case studies from invited contributors. Many people who study on their own feel as if their journey in GRE prep is an isolated one, but this book provides camaraderie so that the process of studying for the GRE is a fun challenge rather than a daunting obstacle. As a managing member of the Washington, D.C.-based Test Heads Educational Coaching, LLC and as a test prep instructor in the business since 1998, I have seen over one thousand GRE, GMAT®, and LSAT® students forge ahead in test preparation. More than half of our students have already taken a course with one of those Big Name companies and they come seeking assistance that will work. A great number of other students have sought to self-study, but don t know where to start. Either way, one of our biggest responsibilities at Test Heads is to make the most out of our time with students and to recommend resources that will help guide students through the process of the GRE preparation and graduate school application process. Many tutoring and group instruction hours could be enhanced with 101 Ways to Score Higher on Your GRE, and I look forward to integrating this book into our test preparation courses. --Theresa Gheen, Test Heads Educational Coaching
