For the quantitative section, the Big Book will not be as helpful. Over the years, the math has become much more difficult.

On the other hand, if you are struggling with math, and are only looking to break , the Big Book or The Official Guide will provide helpful practice. Finally, the strategies and exercises at the beginning of the book, and the explanations the 10 th edition provides for one of the tests, are without exception awful.

Unless you are really starved for content, I would say no. Again, this guide will only be extra prep, and should not be the foundation of your studies. This is the seventh and last! Firstly, the value of Big book lies in its RC questions: However, as u mentioned, the writing style of both passages and critical reasoning stimuli are very outdated: Indeed, the passage contents are dated from to , before my birth!! My opinion is that: From quant, one should only practice the Data Interpretations.

A desire to.

In this instance, the new impulse was at least an energetic one, and thus its indulgence did not result in a relaxed style. But on other occasions Hardy abandoned a perilous, risky, and highly energizing impulse in favor of what was for him the fatally relaxing impulse to classify and schematize abstractly.

The role of magazines as arbiters of nineteenth-century taste is seen in their depictions of the London theater. The magazines accorded some legitimacy to East End working-class theaters that mirrored the format of the fashionable West End theaters serving middle- and upper-class audiences. Finally, they suggested that popular demand for substandard fare created a market unfriendly to higher expressions of dramatic art.

As I mentioned, the likes of 1st passages seem somewhat obsolete in now-a-days articles. I think that this is a good example of how the GRE changed in ! The old GRE, represented by the Big Book, includes more convoluted language and difficult vocabulary. The new GRE emphasizes more straightforward academic language that you will actually see and need to understand in graduate school.

As we mention in this article, this is a major difference in the passages. Dear Chris, Thanks a lot…Indeed, the Old big Book is riddled with those dense articles, which can make one pretty frustrated…. I suggest that you check out forums such as Urch for specific questions. The best way is to just google the first few words of the question in quotes and see if anything comes up!

If you are looking for the answers and explanation for the newer Official Materials for the Revised GRE, we do have a forum the provides answers for many of those questions from our team of test prep experts: Then what I realized was that for quant section something like Manhattan 5pound is good enough Im aiming for the very best in math, in my recent mock on powerprep i got , though for verbal I started reading the Manhattan SE and TC book and also its RC book.

But your reviews made me doubtful on them. Now Im stuck on verbal. FYI my verbal in last mock test was so just average. Can you please tell me some resources to practice verbal questions from? Thanks a lot. And if you were to recommend any third party provider for text completion or sentence equivalence would you have any book recommendations?

Text completions and sentence equivalence questions are very hard to write well, and not many sources have good practice. Hi Chris. You introduce both resources for reading comprehension. I studied some passages of each resources. I compare the passages of these resources in some ways: Passages of LSAT are not very difficult like big book because they are not include many GRE words like big book, its questions are very hard because ask about all content and if you do not understand all passage very good you can not answer many of its questions and questions have not any order for finding their answers in the specific place of passages, its explanations are very good for each question an finally its variety is limited.

Is my comparison right? Thanks for all those insights! With LSAT it is the passages that seem to be denser. If you had double time on LSAT, you could probably answer most of them correctly.

As for priority, I would mix it up with both sources—doing so will make you a stronger overall test taker. The current GRE will also have difficult words and dense passages. There are of course some new question types so you might want to get the New GRE material as well. There is no other such book available which contains the original tests.

With such a large number of actual questions available in the Big Book, there is seldom a need for any other practice material for the test.

Moreover when you have such a source at hand which contains the true tests then all other sources seem unauthentic. The Big Book consequently becomes a must for those who are appearing for the test. Many students claim to have benefited by using this book, to the extent that some of the questions were actually repeated in their test! ETS carries out a number of researches before making any sort of change in their paper format, question type, difficulty level etc.

It is not easy to change the question pattern for GRE; a lot of research goes into it. This means that a large portion of the Big Book still remains worthwhile. The Big Book is considerably useful for vocabulary. This is because of the fact that the difficulty of vocabulary was a lot more when the papers in the GRE. Big Book were administered than it is at present. The questions on vocabulary in any test tend to be repetitive to a certain extent. If you go through all the vocabulary questions then there is a good chance of your scoring well in the Verbal section of the test.

The reading comprehension passages will give you a fair idea and practice of the type and standard of questions asked.Made to resemble something else.

Can you please tell me some resources to practice verbal questions from? The science of life or living organisms. GRE Big book. If you had double time on LSAT, you could probably answer most of them correctly. An arsenal. To utter with a shout. Magoosh blog comment policy: Thanks a ton again!:
