Cool GRE VERBAL SECTION - August 28th, 2008

GRE VERBAL SECTION


GRE - Good Gre Scores, Read GRE test experiences

The GRE verbal section of the test measures the understanding of written material and the ability to form relations between the given information. The given information may be sentences, words or concepts. The student not only requires enough knowledge of the subject, he should also be alert and vigilant in order to find out the difference or similarity in the given information.

As the name suggests, GRE verbal section measures the verbal skills and reasoning of the student. To test the verbal reasoning, there are four types of questions in the GRE verbal section. These questions are on analogies, antonyms, sentence completion and reading comprehensions passages. In the questions based on analogies you are given different sets of words which are related to each other in some way or the other. You have to identify the relation between the pair of words given as options and draw a similarity in the relation of the question pair of words. The questions on antonyms of the GRE verbal section have a question word of which you are required to find the antonym from the given options. Sentence completion questions are ones where a sentence is given in an incomplete form. The options that follow contain the probable answers that make the sentence complete and grammatically correct, out of which the most suitable answer should be chosen. In the reading comprehension questions of the GRE verbal section, a passage is given and is followed by questions and answer options. The student must read the passage carefully and answer the questions according to his understanding of the passage.

The GRE verbal section is made difficult and confusing by the options because most of the times you will find the answer options to be similar. Therefore there may be more than one probable answer for the same question. That is why one must think logically before answering this section and should not just jump to conclusions without even reading the options.




SKILLS REQUIRED TO ATTEMPT THE GRE VERBAL SECTION
The GRE verbal section is a tricky section. It needs the skills of logic and reasoning in order to attempt it successfully. One should be able to deduce the conclusion from the given information. The skill of finding out relationships that exist between the given words or concepts is a must for this section.

Not only does it require the skills of rationality in order to find out the correct answer, it also requires a good vocabulary. The questions on analogies and antonyms cannot be solved by mere guess-work, but a good vocabulary always helps in solving such questions.

Along with vocabulary, the GRE verbal section is also about grammar and language. Students should polish their language by good amount of reading. They must make it a point to give quality time to reading on a daily basis. By quality reading it is meant that the student should make an effort to learn difficult words, their meanings and their opposites. This is how they will increase their vocabulary. Moreover, regular reading habit also helps in developing the grammar. These skills are very essential for the questions without which it is impossible to attempt the GRE verbal section correctly.

One of the best ways to enhance your vocabulary skills is to read more. Become a voracious reader by reading everything you can get your hands on. And then put them to use. The more you use them the faster you grasp. The most fun filled way to improve your vocabulary is to play word games. So You learn while you are playing.
