3 Week Plan Summary

In the course of three weeks, you should have enough time to become familiar with the content and format of the GRE revised General Test. Three weeks is also ample time to attempt many practice questions, and to review hundreds, as well as learn quite a few new, vocabulary words. Although three weeks is a long time, it is not long enough to learn hundreds of new vocabulary words, especially if you are not as good at vocabulary as you would like to be. However, you should have plenty of time to at least view hundreds of vocabulary words, and that should help you to become adjusted to the types of words that you should expect to see on the exam.

During the course of the three weeks, you will practice using many practice questions that are available on MyGRETutor.com. You will take at least two practice tests, preferably three. Each of the weekly timetables that are provided as part of the three-week plan span 6 days. Numerous studies have shown that it is not advisable to cram for standardized tests, and that any memorization that you do will all be wasted; most well-developed standardized tests are very good at testing your knowledge rather than your memorization skills. Do not be tempted to rush through all of the tutorials, questions, and practice exams.

Expect to spend 2 hours each day, 6 days each week, for three whole weeks, for a total of approximately 36-40 hours of study time. Unlike the two week and one week study plans, the 36 hours that you spend during the three week plan should not only help you to become familiar with the GRE, but you should be able to significantly improve to the score that you would get if you were not to study.
