How GRE Test will help you for your life

I would like to write on GRE issue. I hope it might help the current
students or those who want to go for a Higher Study.

-------------------------------
Importance of GRE :
-------------------------------
GRE-Graduate Record Examination

To apply for MSc or PhD programs GRE is a like an entrance exam or
admission test. If you do well in GRE, it seems that you are doing
well in an admission test. So your chances become higher for getting
an admission as well as scholarship to World Leading Universities.
Even students form USA or CANADA require GRE for their MS and PhD
application.

Which universities ask for GRE?
Ands: GRE test is required for most of US Universities (around 95%)
many Canadian Universities(around 65%), some European
Universities(around 30%), in Japan I don't feel GRE required but it
is good if you have GRE score. Even for applying to IIT, India GRE is
required.

GRE would not only help you for Higher Study but also help you for
the following two primary issues:

#1. If you think you would apply for IBA MBA. GRE preparation would
cover both the Math and verbal section of IBA test. If you plan for
staying at Bangladesh you can plan for a MBA. Engineering + MBA is of
high demand.

#2. A lot of job recruiting exams for example in Telecom sector,
especially in case of written test, it is based on quantitative or
analytical practice which is very similar to GRE test.

Now Few Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ) and Answers about GRE
-------------------------------------------------------------
Ques: What are the parts of GRE ?
Ans: GRE Test comprise of 3 sections.i.e. Quantative Section/Math (of
800 marks), Verbal Section(of 800 marks), Analytical Writing Section
(of 6 points)

Ques: Do you need to give both GRE and TOEFL/IELTS or only one?
Ans: Both GRE and TOEFL/IELTS is required for applying. To apply for
MSc or PhD programs GRE is a like an entrance exam or admission test.
If you do well in GRE, it seems you are doing well in an admission
test. So your chances become higher for getting an admission as well
as scholarship to World Leading Universities. Even students form USA
or CANADA require GRE for their MS and PhD application.

Ques: Which one I should take with GRE? TOEFL or IELTS ?
Ans: TOEFL or IELTS are similar type of Tests and required only for
those students whose native language is not English like Bangladeshi
students. You can take either TOEFL or IELTS. In case of USA there
are few universities which allow only TOEFL not IELTS. Other than
that in all over the world both IELTS and TOEFL are allowed. The
preparation is almost same and variation may be in question patterns.
But the matter is that if you take GRE then TOEFL or IELTS is not
that much to prepare again. I took my TOELF (Internet based) exam
with a four days preparation after my GRE exam. So concentrate on
GRE and don't worry much of TOEFL or IELTS. These exams are very easy
comparing to GRE.

Ques: How to start with GRE Preparation?
Ans: The first thing should be memorizing words for the verbal
section of GRE. Then practice quantitative(math). Now a days the math
secrion is very very tough. Do not ignore maths only because you are
an Engineer. Take at least one week preparation for analytical
writing.

Ques: What are the books for GRE preparation?
Ans: For words/verbal the Book :"Word Smart" by Princeton Review is
the ultimate weapon. It is a small and cheap book with near about
1500 words. Try to memorize all those with in 2/3 months. For
quantitative Barron's GRE is very good book. For verbal Barrons has
3500 words but the bad thing with Barron's GRE book is that it has
tough word meanings with tougher synonyms. So at the beginning do not
start with Barrons for verbal/word practice. Only after you complete
the 1500 most common words from Word Smart you can start Barrons if
you have time to prepare. If you complete both Word Smart+ Barrons
then you would get 1450+ for sure in GRE.

Ques: Which score is good in GRE?
Ans: Out of 1600(800 in math, 800 in verbal) above 1200 is good in
the sense that you must get 750 in math(which is most important for
Engineering Students) and a score with 450+ as our mother language is
not English. But for US/CAN students 600+ is required for Verbal
section. Anything above 1400 is superb score and you can apply to
University of California, Barkley with 1400+ score.

I should soon mail for how to prepare for GRE. You can mail
