This book is an attempt to help students to learn the experience of my one-year studying for the GRE exam of almost every resource available on the market. During my studies of GRE, I came up with some tips and strategies that I found them surprisingly helpful and powerful. These tricks literally equip my eyes with some tools to see what is happening in the mind of a GRE's test designer and what is happening behind the scene of the GRE passages. More surprisingly, I did not find any book on the market explaining about these powerful techniques. This ended up taking an action to fill this gap between test preparation books and GRE exam and I decided to write a book to reveal all my tricks and experiences along with other tricks I learned from other books available on the market to write a book. In writing this book, I tried to follow 80-20 rule, and removed all 80% redundant information, to give you sheer 20% knowledge about GRE to save your time.
