    Hey, I disagree with what Harsha said about Magoosh that it doesn’t have an experimental section. Magoosh DOES HAVE 5 sections in the practice test. IT INCLUDES EXPERIMENTAL SECTION.

    • sriharsha bolisetti on July 13, 2013 at 11:23 PM

      Dude, I used magoosh 1 year before… It may have that feature now but at that time its not available.
      Anyway I am skeptical you watched the whole video because I never used magoosh practice tests, I only used manhattan and powerprep.

      All the best for your GRE preparation.

    @Sri How would you rate the online Manhattan mock exams? Do you think mock score reflect those of real GRE?

    @HSB,@Harsha Bollisetti: Hey can i know which coaching academy were you from ?
    Is it Dr Raju’s at KPHB?

    • Sri on September 13, 2012 at 8:04 AM

      It’s Krupa coaching in Nallakunta…. Krupa helped me in building huge vocabulary …but I got all the real help from magoosh…

    hi HSB
    i’ve been following this blog for the last 2 years and i’ve got a lot to know about the things to do for the mission “MS ABROAD”. To be honest this post has been the best post given by HSB till date. I’m yet to give GRE within the next 2-3 months. I’ve also completed my B.E in ECE but I wanna to my M.S in the same field unlike this guy. My preparation strategy matches this guy’s a hell lot. There’s no other way of remembering the words than associating a word with some mnemonic. 317 seems to be a good score but i’m aiming for a 325+. Thanks a ton for sharing this video. It has helped me a lot on planning my way to a good score.

    • Sri on September 13, 2012 at 8:13 AM

      Always aim for high scores… Even I aimed for 330+ … But because of various reasons I wasnt able to land in that coveted region…:(
      Hope you reach your target score….:)

    • Sri on September 13, 2012 at 8:09 AM
