I’m already using several books and websites to prepare for GRE. How is GREedge.com different?

Here are quite a few reasons why you need GREedge.com:

1. When you read from other sources and solve their tests, you will be tested on concepts that were contained in the book. So, you may end up developing a false sense of being well prepared. However, with our program, you will get an unbiased view of your preparedness, strengths and weaknesses.

2. Beating the competition is all about doing everything your competitor is doing, and exceeding that by one more step. When you take up tests from books or CDs, you do that in isolation. You have almost no idea how much others are scoring on the same test. In the GREedge.com test series, you will get personalized analysis that helps you understand your strengths and also identify your weaknesses. In addition to that your SFA will also teach you tricks and strategies which will help you boost your scores and get your answers right in shortest time.
