Learning Vocab with the help of Magoosh Application for GRE Vocabulary. For Quant I am doing it from GMAT fundamental books by Manhattan. I have read at a lot of places that they are tougher. If I can conquer this then GRE quant should be in the backyard too.

I try finishing 1 quant chapter per day. Also I am a college student in my final semester plus I am working also. It's tough but I am giving my best shot. Other guys out there who can join in ?

Hi , 

Have recently decided to take up GRE and am planning to do the same this October. Any heads up on the same? I have the Barron's study material and am not so sure if that will suffice. Would be great if some of us can co ordinate and work along together. By the way, I have 2yrs of wok exp and am planning to apply for MS in Information security. Anyone else out there who knows about the same?
