GRE, IELTS, PTE, TOEFL, and Preparing for These

by admin on March 20th, 2017

The season of taking tests and exams is here. You have finished writing your exams, or are in the middle of the year end tests, or are about to begin taking a few. The year end tests, if you are about to accept your bachelors degree, will lead to a spate of more tests, especially if you plan to go abroad.

The GRE comes to mind for those who plan to go to the US for MS. Understand that GRE preparation takes a lot of time. By time, I do not mean preparing for several hours each day. GRE is a test that needs to be understood. And understanding does not come from brute force methods. The GRE Sentence completion exercises need to be tackled with special care.

Sentence completion exercises of GRE require candidates to understand the sentence structure rather than the meaning of the words that are given as a part of the answer choices. Always remember that a clue to the answer is always within the sentence. The trick is to figure out how to get to the clue.

Focusing on vocabulary is also one of the most common mistakes in IELTS writing.There is a difference between using big words and using them correctly. IELTS is a language test, and therefore looks at how well you convey meaning rather then how many ‘big’ words you can use.

We will be talking about PTE and TOEFL  preparation in future posts.
