- About The Test
The GRE exam primarily tests your aptitude for logic and reasoning. While it is true that you would need to have working knowledge of many words, simply knowing the meaning of the word will not help you in getting a good score. What you need to know is how these words operate in conjuction with other words and with the sentences they are in.
Understanding this logic will help you in being able to answer the GRE questions and in quite a few cases help you answer the questions even without knowing the meaning of the words and even in the worst cases help you in guessing the right answer.
