GRE Reading Comprehension: Detailed Solutions to 325 Questions


Entrance exams for college and for graduate schools are daunting, especially with the heightened competition for placement students are feeling and coping with at present. Vibrant Publishers present a series of preparatory books that are so smoothly designed, visually easy on the eye, and solidly constructed in the manner in which they approach the topics that it seems likely that soon students will find these relatively inexpensive books mandatory in preparing for `the big day'.
This volume is created for those who are preparing for the new format of the Graduate Record Examinations and the concentration here is on reading comprehension. In a rather straight forward manner (but progressively more demanding as the book proceeds) the reader/student is presented with 200 questions, exploring the manner in which to solve the questions by increasing reading comprehension and then offering questions for practice, guiding the student through the steps on how to read the question, how to `hear' the question, and how to solve the question. There are passages in the book that aid the student in systematically approaching every question with a learned technique of mastering how to truly read the material that precedes the question, and the traps that exist to attempt to derail the student.

One of the best aspects of the book is the manner in which the questions are presented, taking the reader through the steps and then finally analyzing the answer it self - a giant puzzle that actually works with practice and repetition. While many other such `self -help' books strive to prepare the student for GRE this book creates the atmosphere of the exams and by calmly repeating the steps the student finally arrives at a point where the examination process per se is no longer threatening. Very well prepared study guide!
