Prep Course?
Does anyone know about a good prep course for the test?
The score is really important so i want to be ready....

Re: Prep Course?
When I studied for Oct2014 I could not find a decent prep course (and I looked for one).

Re: Prep Course?
Found something:
This one is available, but does not seem to be of best quality: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rb4Wp2LeZs
This one looks promising. It haven't started yet, but you can sign up in the site: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mWhEGNwlb7Q

Nice advertising model here...

Haha it's really quite blatant isn't it? These people are all obviously the guy from subject math dot Comcaxton wrote:Nice advertising model here...
Re: Prep Course?
Especially when you look at the length of time between posts. People on here come and go; it's pretty rare that such exchanges happen so close together by people who are new to the forum, based on what I've seen. So yes, obvious sock puppet is obvious.

Have you seen the reviews of his stuff on Amazon? It's all clearly him. Guy has no shame.cbone6754 wrote:Haha it's really quite blatant isn't it? These people are all obviously the guy from subject math dot Comcaxton wrote:Nice advertising model here...
Re: Prep Course?
It's absurd and quite frustrating as I am currently studying for the exam and would love to know what my options are without having to constantly sift through spam. By the way what are your thoughts on using K.F Riley's Mathematical Method's and solutions manual in conjunction with Leduc's Cracking GRE book? are there any other books that you know stress quick problem solving strategies while still rehashing a bit of theory?User0821 wrote:Have you seen the reviews of his stuff on Amazon?

Re: Prep Course?
By the way I want to thank you for your fabulous solutions! Havent gotten to them all yet but will certainly make my way through them in time. You are already quite a trusted name in my book due to your excellent video series "intro to higher mathematics", gave me a good intro to real math as I transitioned from Neuroscience to Pure Math. Have you thought about doing a subject math type course (for non sock puppets)? You really have a gift for presenting concepts well. I've showed the aforementioned video series to many colleagues, and the approval was universal.DMAshura wrote:Especially when you look at the length of time between posts.

Re: Prep Course?
To be fair to him, I am enrolled in some of his subjectmath.com modules and they do seem legitimate. I just hate his promotional scheming. I'm not aware of Riley's book, but it seems similar to Mary Boas' book, Mathematical Methods in the Physical Sciences, which is great.cbone6754 wrote:It's absurd and quite frustrating as I am currently studying for the exam and would love to know what my options are without having to constantly sift through spam.

I can't think of any prep book or review book that does everything you need for this test. The answer given here at Math Stack Exchange seems to be very popular, although it would be extremely time consuming:
http://math.stackexchange.com/questions ... bjecttestREA books or Princeton review are not so useful.
Make sure that you do each and every problem from Stewart Calculus atleast twice, since its timed test, pace is also important factor.
Do Dummit upto field extensions, if you have time do Artin's Algebra too.
Rudin Real Analysis, Munkres Topology, Insel Linear Algebra are also must.
I suggest to go for Gamlin Complex Analysis, Brown's Complex Analysis is also sufficient but if you are good at Complex Analysis you can save time in the exam by simplifying integral using methods from Complex Analysis. (Do till Residues)
For the misc topics pick any Discrete Maths book and read them a day or two that's more than enough.
Learn some basic number theory from any introductory book.
Do all the 4 available practice tests, you should be able to finish of the tests little earlier because actual test will be harder than those practice tests.
Re: Prep Course?
Thank you, I appreciate it! I have in fact considered creating my own prep material, though it would have to be somewhat later, since this is a very tricky semester for me  teaching a full load of classes, and one semester away from my Master's in Math Education! During next semester and over the summer, though, I could probably focus on such a project if there's interest.cbone6754 wrote:By the way I want to thank you for your fabulous solutions!
