How to Use The Manhattan GRE Strategy Guide
Manhattan Prep’s GRE materials are comprehensive. But keep in mind that, depending on your score goal, it may not be necessary to get absolutely everything. Grad schools only see your overall Quantitative, Verbal, and Writing scores—they don’t see exactly which strengths and weaknesses went into creating those scores.
You may be enrolled in one of our courses, in which case you already have a syllabus telling you in what order you should approach the books. But if you bought this book online or at a bookstore, feel free to approach the books—and even the chapters within the books—in whatever order works best for you. For the most part, the books, and the chapters within them, are independent; you don’t have to master one section before moving on to the next.
So if you’re having a hard time with something in particular, you can make a note to come back to it later and move on to another section. Similarly, it may not be necessary to solve every single practice problem for every section. As you go through the material, continually assess whether you understand and can apply the principles in each individual section and chapter.
The best way to do this is to solve the Check Your Skills and Practice Sets throughout. If you’re confident you have a concept or method down, feel free to move on. If you struggle with something, make note of it for further review. Stay active in your learning and stay oriented toward the test—it’s easy to read something and think you understand it, only to have trouble applying it in the 1–2 minutes you have to solve a problem.
