web links to study materials

Postby tensorwhat » Sat Mar 07, 2009 11:54 pm

hello all,

i thought i'd share some links to some interesting stuff i've found.....

here are a couple to start off with:

ETS Committee of examiners sample questions (31 problems, 1999):

http://www.scribd.com/doc/7221045/GRE-Physics

This thing apparently sucks (but i think some of the quick review in the beginning is half-way decent) REA "Purple Book":

Hi guys,

I also just found this link......

http://electron9.phys.utk.edu/GRE/practice_tests.htm

Unless I'm out of my mind and can't remember, I'm pretty sure some of the questions they have in these docs are not off the available practice exams (obviously the ones with 4 answer choices, but some with 5 choices look as devious as a GRE question), but look scanned from 'somewhere else'......... :?:

Some other interesting stuff, no new questions, but some guides, and study materials:

Steuard Jensen, Special relativity diagrams, optics review:

Some insight from an UT-Arlington student:

Hello,

I was just wondering about the link that "tensorwhat" added, namely:

http://electron9.phys.utk.edu/GRE/practice_tests.htm

Are the questions there the same as those in the 4 practice tests ?

If not, then what are they exactly? I mean, are they close enough to

those appearing in an original PGRE test?

Thanks.

Has anyone checked all these out?? I'm also curious if anyone has found anything that allows you to study on your iPhone??

Interesting that a guy at the 52nd percentile feels qualified to give advice on the physics GRE. But what he says about sugar is a good idea, and that you should concentrate on the questions you can do in the time available is good advice.

the only resource that you can trust is the test materials released by ETS which is your first priority. after that, you can decide by your own on whether these questions are helpful enough or whether you have time to work on them or nai.

the extra 35 questions by ETS that tensorwhat has linked, have been already linked in the forum in other topics.

Check out xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx !

The material isn't free but it's not crazy expensive either. The study package is fabulous and comes with reading material, quizzes, practice exams, and analytic reports. They probably offer some of the best features I've seen compared with other prep websites.

On topic spam, though. It's like doing a google search for enlarging your penis and being pissed that someone tries to sell you bogus pills.

I remember being quite surprised when I discovered that everybody gets spam emails on enlarging one's genitals, losing weight, getting a hold of money, and making yourself less ugly. Thought it was coming from people who knew me.

Nah, just that I was over weight, needed money, and was ugly.

If they had spam for "make your girly hands manly", "fix your obnoxious sense of humor", "stop your horrible body odor" and "cure excessive masturbation" I'd probably get it too.
