A Paragraph Argument question will have you do one of a number of things: Evaluate the Argument. It is called Paragraph Argument. Perhaps the terns used the time on the outcrops to clean their feathers or some other random explanation. I made up these fish facts. With this excerpt. Other twists Sometimes. That is. There will be plenty of practice there for this tricky kind of question. Conclusion In this case.

Notice how there is another conclusion: It is a conclusion drawn from facts that we. I am assuming that the tern is going to have trouble hunting the guppy in the evening.

What does this all mean? The takeaway? Do not spend 3 minutes agonizing over a three-blank text completion with the words hagiographic and pulchritudinous as answer choices. There is. So make sure to be accurate. Takeaway Each question on the GRE is worth the same. The shocking thing is each question.

That point is so important I am going to repeat it again in caps: As long as you just guess some random answer. Remember you can always come back to a difficult question if you have time. Do not waste time trying to answer a difficult question.

The Revised GRE. There is no penalty for guessing. Simply put. And that penalty is you getting the easy question wrong. Make sure to take advantage of this function. The key to active usage is to be creative.

We have over free ones for you to flip through online or on your phone! Reading for vocabulary Why is reading for vocab. In the cozy flashcard milieu. If you are going to use flashcards. It is this element of surprise. A technique you can rely on is active usage — a highly effective way of embedding words into long-term memory.

You picture a docile creature bah-ing contentedly in a pen. When you see the definition — to reprimand harshly — it always surprises you. Case in point. Imagine a boss. And by good. I mean it is memorable.

Your significant other arrives and.

As silly as my mnemonics may sound. Above are two mnemonics that I thought of on the spot. He or she calls you into their office or lair and is now berating you for something you did incorrectly. The Economist. Most of the writing found within the pages of these august publications is not only replete with GRE-level vocabulary but is also similar in tone and style to that found on the Revised GRE.

Maybe you simply want to vary up your reading. The myth of the generalist CEO is bolstered by the many fawning media portrayals where CEOs say that their key jobs are understanding.

These sources include The New York Times. Rakesh Khurana has amply shown how this delusion of the charismatic savior creates a dysfunctional market for CEOs. While it may be drier than the typical fare found in the Suggestions for this eBook?

I will highlight important vocabulary and also discuss ways you should approach learning words when you encounter them in context. The Atlantic Monthly. Part of the reason is the Revised GRE will typically have one science passage. Perhaps business reading induces a meh.

The Atlantic Monthly Outsider. This excerpt is also filled with analysis. Today I am going to take actual articles from the aforementioned sources. A great field to draw from is science. This passage is great because it is full of relatively difficult words. Irene Pepperberg—namely how she trained Alex to say hundreds of words though none.

My eight-year-old daughter says that she wishes the horses she rides could talk. The excerpt includes a few vocab words. All children grow up in a world of talking animals. A child will grant the gift of speech to the family dog. The New Yorker Below is an excerpt from the article.

Write it down on a flashcard along with an example sentence oh. The New York Times At a certain point. Erica Heller. There are many difficult words. Higher-frequency words—GRE-wise—include mordant. The adjective form. The doctor was always optimistic. It is interesting and ingenious. And pat. D garrulous is the opposite of 'tight-lipped. For the second blank.

Therefore each time a person is mentioned we want to come up with a person who exhibits opposite qualities. Blank i Blank ii Blank ii A. For each blank select one word from each column that best completes the sentence. H 'Foil' is an opposite.

Thus the word in the blank should be a synonym with dishonest A. Select exactly two words that best complete the sentence and produce sentences that are alike in meaning. Hemingway biographies had shown a similar trend. What little scholarship has existed on Ernest Hemingway--considering his stature--has focused on trying to unmask the man behind the bravura.

Until recently.

In the last few years. C is clearly supported in the passage: With which of the following would the author of the passage agree? The prevalence of scholarship on Hemingway is commensurate with his renown as a writer. C only A is wrong because the first sentence clearly states the opposite: B is wrong because the passage says. The recent ban only extends to within one hundred miles of Iceland. The incoming prime minister of Canada. The waters off the coast of Iceland are filled with pods of killer whales.

Since Iceland recently gave into pressure from international groups opposed to the hunting of killer whales. Some wildlife parks are involved in the illegal trade of killer whales. In-park killer whale births have become increasingly common. It is nearly impossible to catch killer whales in deep waters. Choose the option that best answers the question. Wildlife parks that rely on the killer whales for entertainment hunt the killer whale almost exclusively in the water of Iceland.

The argument states that North America is also abundant in killer whale. Therefore E is the answer. E does not provide a new means by which parks will acquire new killer whales. If Canada lifts its ban. D provides a clear means by which parks will acquire killer whales despite all the bans. It only describes how killer whales are generally caught.

E The argument states that the only place wildlife parks can find killer whales is off the coast of Iceland. B is out. C provides a great place to replenish the killer whale population: A provides a source of killer whales Greenland. Eliminate all the answer choices that call this question into conclusion. C directly attacks the argument that wildlife parks will run out of killer whale.

So what does it take to get a 4. If you program requires at least a 4. The next essay is called the Argument. Are you looking to go to journalism school? Two essays? To get to this level should be your goal. Instead of having to argue your own position.

Looking to do computer science or engineering? For most programs. Better yet. This is the Issue statement. This someone else happens to be the GRE test-writers.

The arguments are always based on real-world.

For the first essay. While very few people are able to get a perfect 6. Just enough? The AWA is scored on a scale from 0. I mean. Do you vary up your sentences? Do grammar issues interfere with your expression? Takeaway So. For the Argument task.

The GRE wants to get a sense of how well you write. The essay should have an Intro. Body Paragraphs and Conclusion. We are going to take a look at the Issue and Argument independently.

Your intro should end with a clearly defined thesis. And by write. For the Issue paragraphs. Assumption 1 The argument assumes that the increase in homeowners is directly correlated with improved living. The first step is to brainstorm the logical gaps or unwarranted assumptions the argument makes. The recent surge in the number of homeowners in Corporateville proves that Corporateville is a superior place to live then Middlesburg.

SuperCorp has determined that its workers prefer to live in an area that is not urban. The follow up post will have a sample essay. Below is a sample argument prompt and the first step in approaching the Argument Task: In this post we will only be concerned with the brainstorming part. Sample task SuperCorp recently moved its headquarters to Corporateville.

Middleburg is a predominately urban area and according to an employee survey. That is the increase of population does not mean that everybody wants to live in Corporateville because it is such a great place. Be sure to explain how the argument depends on the assumptions and what the implications are if the assumptions prove unwarranted.

SuperCorp clearly made the best decision. Corporateville has lower taxes than Middlesburg. Planning before you write will. Is it really indicative of how employees feel? Perhaps the survey only asked upper management.

Remember working and living are two very different things. In this same sentence. And be careful not to assume that people typically leave urban areas for the suburbs. If the argument is setting out to prove that Corporateville is a superior place to work than Middlesburg.

Assumption 6 The argument ends by saying that Supercorp clearly made the right decision. Perhaps Corporateville is also somewhat urban. We do not know. Assumption 3 We do not know anything about the survey.

Takeaways The goal of the brainstorming session is not to see how many assumptions you can find. Never bring your own preconceived notions into the argument Assumption 5 Towards the end. Maybe only the engineering department was questioned. Even if Corporateville is a better place for Supercorp. Perhaps Supercorp could have moved to a different city.

Assumption 4 There is nothing in the argument that says that Corporateville is not urban. So stay focused on analyzing the issue. Keep it focused Within the paragraph it is easy for us to lose our way.

The body paragraphs should develop your thesis. The Issue Prompt requires you to respond to a simple statement. Even an impassioned. Often it is easiest for the writer—and the reader—if the last sentence in the Intro is the thesis.

Maybe our sentences do not link together logically. The Intro serves unsurprisingly to introduce the topic. Keep it organized Nothing reflects strong essay writing skills like organization. Make sure your sentences link together. Keep it engaging Repetitive sentence structure makes for repetitive reading.

Perhaps we summarize needlessly. The Intro should not be needlessly long. Noun followed by verb followed by adjective implies that you are a hesitant writer. Regardless of your analysis and organization.

It takes a lifetime of diligent practice. For practical advice on practicing: So set yourself a goal say.

The first page of Lolita alone makes even New Yorker staff writers blush crimson with envy. And Vladimir Nabokov wrote in both French and Russia before ever committing his pen to English at the ripe age of But the key is practice.

If you begin talking about how technology is destructive because smartphones cause us to become insular. So for non-native speakers do Nabokov proud. If you trying to show that knowledge can sometimes be used for destructive ends. Imagine you had to write on the mock prompt on knowledge I used above. Even as a non-native speaker.

Two of the preeminent prose stylists of the English-language novel were both non-native English speakers.For each blank select one word from each column that best completes the sentence. A child will grant the gift of speech to the family dog. Column B says the number has to be less than OR equal to Assumption 4 There is nothing in the argument that says that Corporateville is not urban. Keep it focused Within the paragraph it is easy for us to lose our way. Quantitative Comparison is a unique beast—while the math concepts are the exact same as those covered in Problem Solving.
