What should I concentrate more on- just the concept & little problems or, some basic concepts & crafty problems.? For people from India, would the ques be of IIT type or just concept based.? Plz do help..

What are you talking about? Do you mean what should you concentrate on in studying for your Physics GRE? General GRE? Something else altogether? If you mean Physics GRE I would suggest (but I can't swear to it, I am still formulating my strategy for studying for the Physics GRE) memorizing (and of course having a general understanding) all of the key formulas (the ones that are highlighted in books like "Fundamentals of Physics" and "University Physics") in an introductory Physics textbook. Actually, you don't have to memorize all of them, you are provided with a table of information when you take the PGRE. Then, and this is important, take the four practice tests that were stickied at the top of the Physics GRE forum (it might even be a good idea to study these tests as this could help you become "test wise" and this is often helpful on tests like this one). That might just be adequate preparation for the PGRE (although, if you have time you might want to learn more than the information in an Introductory Physics text, particularly since some concepts, like laboratory methods and math skills, that are on the test, probably aren't in an introductory Physics text).

practice applying concepts in problems, not just reading and thinking you understand them.
there are no tricky questions. much easier and shorter questions than IITJEE, though if you did any prep for that at all, this should be a breeze.
