General Introduction

So, having a strong vocabulary is really important for success in the GRE's verbal reasoning section. Reading will help you build vocabulary over time but you're also gonna want to study  words that you don't know.

In this video, we'll give you a few ideas about how to study vocabulary effectively.

Learning Vocabulary

It does work sometimes to use the parts of the word to guess its meaning if you don't know. 

In this video, we'll discuss how to learn and use parts of words to help guess word meaning.

Word Parts

Understanding what you read is the most crucial skill for the verbal reasoning section of the GRE but it is also important for math questions, many of which are really worthy.

In this video, we'll talk about a few ways to increase your reading comprehension.

Improving Reading

One of the ways to improve your reading comprehension is to be able to identify the function or the role of different sentences or paragraphs within a passage. This is what we call reading critically. Also, certain GRE Verbal questions will actually directly test the skill.

In this video, we'll give you a few ideas about how to classify the parts of the passage.

Reading Critically
GRE Sentence Equivalence
7 Lectures 25:55

So, out of the 20 questions of each GRE Verbal Section, about 4 of them will be sentence equivalence questions. These questions are quite similar to text completion but one major difference is that the two answer choices in both must make the sentence have the same meaning.

We'll show you the basic of these questions in this video. 

Welcome To Sentence Equivalence

Even though sentence equivalence questions will only have one sentence with one blank, it is really best to have a method of attacking them.

In this video, we'll demonstrate a step-by-step sentence equivalence technique.

Sentence Equivalence Technique

Within nearly every sentence equivalence questions are one or more sign posts that you can use as clues to help you solve and determine the right answer for the blank.

In this video, we'll discuss some common signposts that you can recognize and use them.

Sign Posts Sentence Equivalence

Besides using sign posts, the good people who writes sentence equivalence questions also use descriptive clues to justify the right answers. 

In this video, we'll go over what these clues are, and how to recognize and use them.

Descriptive Clues

There's a certain sentence clue in the question that are more difficult to work with because the sentence itself can be wordy or complex or both.

In this video, we'll explain how to deal with a complicated complex sentence equivalence question so that you can work with it more easily.

Complex Sentence Equivalence

So, one complain we have about sentence equivalence question is the level of vocabulary can be really tough. Sometimes the tough word is gonna get in the way of understanding the sentence itself and sometimes the answer choices have difficult words and sometimes it is even both.

In this video, we'll talk about a couple of ways to work around tough vocabulary.

Tough Vocabulary Sentence Equivalence

I often remind my students that one of the most neglected but also the most important part of GRE preparation is the analysis of the previously completed question whether you got it wrong or right.

In this video, we'll show you how to review a sentence equivalence question to ensure you learn as much as possible from it.
