International Students’ Guide to the GRE®

Sentence Equivalence and Text Completion

About the Book

Thinking of going to graduate school in the United States? An essential step is to achieve an acceptable score on the GRE (Graduate Record Exam). The GRE is a challenging test for everyone. The verbal section can be especially difficult for students whose first language is not English. You need a guide!

This guidebook concentrates on two parts of the verbal section: Sentence Equivalence and Text Completion. A top score on these two parts of the test depends on a knowledge of advanced vocabulary. This is not the vocabulary students of English typically encounter in their language classes. The words that appear in these sections tend to be high-level, low-frequency words. A familiarity with “GRE vocabulary” is a critical part of preparation for the test.

To help you maximize your score on the Verbal section of the GRE, this guidebook includes:

  • An introduction to the GRE as a whole and hints for preparing for the test
  • Tactics for attacking Sentence Equivalence and Text Completion problems
  • Ten exercises containing items that closely resemble those on the actual GRE
  • A list of 360 important vocabulary items; these words have appeared on past tests or are likely to appear on future tests
  • A variety of exercises to practice using the words on the list: fill in the blank, matching, multiple choice, crossword puzzles, etc.
  • A comprehensive vocabulary review
  • A list of common English word roots to help you guess the meaning of unfamiliar words
  • A supplemental list of 400 vocabulary words likely to appear on GRE tests
