HOW DO I FIND OUT WHAT SKILLS I NEED TO IMPROVE ON FOR THE EXAM?

There are two ways to find out what skills you need to improve on for the exam.

One is with the LifeLines Practice Test Score Card, a form you fill out after taking the official exam practice test. Here each question can be marked by type (ex. exponents, triangles, ratios etc.) and the reason why you missed it.

The other is by going through the LifeLines Workbooks. They are sectioned by Topics, each of which focuses on one skill at a time and has its own dedicated Drills and Quizzes.

- The GRE practice test is available for free at ets.org.
- The LifeLines Practice Test Score Card is FREE via PDF download on this site as part of the Lifelines for the GRE Practice Resource Guide. There is also an example Score Card filled out included, so you can see how it works.

WHAT ABOUT THE COST OF THE WORKBOOKS?

The cost of LifeLines Workbooks is in line with the value of your time, the score you can reach, and your future goals.

Also, many of our students have earned scholarships from their test scores.

LifeLines Workbooks capture lessons refined according to student questions and feedback. These lessons were delivered hundreds of times in the classrooms of our offices and university campuses.

We have captured all the whiteboard drawings, explanations, and strategies and placed them in these books.

IF English is my second language? HOW WILL LIFELINES HELP ME?

Our non-native English-speaking students do just as well as any other students while covering this material.

How do I even start to study?

The LifeLines Workbooks have everything organized by steps. The front matter tells you how the exam itself works and what to ask your admissions office.

The lessons are made up of Topic modules that bracket the skills in their own dedicated sections. The Topics include Drills and Quizzes with solutions that give you immediate feedback. Topic by Topic you go through the skills covered in the exam.

- A full list of skills (by Topic) is in the Table of Contents of both the Math and Verbal Workbooks.
- The Math Workbook also includes a checklist of skills at the back of the book.
- A copy of the Math Checklist is available for free by downloading the LifeLines for the GRE Practice/Study Guide PDF.

Why do you start with simple MATH?

We assume that you’ve forgotten all of your math, even if you were a straight-A student. We start at the basics and build up to the level of the exam.

What about practicing the skills more?

Use the practice books made by the makers of the actual exams. The scope of material and the nature of the questions is true.

We have designed LifeLines Practice Forms that organize the Math and Verbal questions according to the LifeLines Topic skills.

The forms list the page number and question number of each Topic, along with a space to mark your answer choice. This is a great time saver.

A copy of the whole set of Practice Forms is available as a FREE download in the LifeLines for the GRE Practice/Study Guide.

Do the workbooks have everything on the exam?

If a topic never appears on the exam, it’s not in the Lifelines Workbooks. And yes, everything on the exam is in the Workbooks.

WHAT MAKES THESE STRATEGIES YOU TALK ABOUT SO VALUABLE?

These strategies are easy to learn, and they show you how to answer the question quickly without working a lot of math. Basically, if you find yourself working a lot of math, you’ve missed the point of the question.

WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT THE LIFELINES QUIZZES?

The quizzes mimic the content, nature, and difficulty of the actual exam questions. In the LifeLines Workbooks, the quizzes are specific to each topic.
