## HELP in getting high score in GRE Math subject test

### Re: HELP in getting high score in GRE Math subject test

What is your mathematics background? What classes have you taken?

### Re: HELP in getting high score in GRE Math subject test

I did not took any class.

I prepear my self. I have master degree in maths. but in gre paper I was solving the sums very slow. How can I increase my speed?

### Re: HELP in getting high score in GRE Math subject test

I meant what mathematics classes have you taken? You have a masters in mathematics. So what's giving you trouble on the test?

### Re: HELP in getting high score in GRE Math subject test

for example Abstract algebra, group theory, topology space, metric space and other spaces etc., I don't know. I did not studied. How can I increase my speed?

### Re: HELP in getting high score in GRE Math subject test

Well you're asking how do increase your speed, but it sounds like you don't even know half the material on the test?

As far as speed, honestly, that was my problem on the test, and the only thing I can tell you is to know the material very well and practice on the sample tests.

But with an 11 percentile and not knowing the group theory, topology, etc on the test, it really sounds like you just don't know the material. You say you have a Masters in math, but have you never had a class in basic abstract algebra or general topology?

I did not study about abstract algebra, spaces etc......

Give me some tips

Give me some tips

### Re: HELP in getting high score in GRE Math subject test

There are no magic "tips" we can give you to get a better score. With a score like 11% it is clear you just do not know the material. We can help you with specific questions, managing your time, or pointing you towards proper resources to learn the material, but there is nothing we can post here that will significantly raise your score. If you are considering applying to PhD programs this year I would seriously reconsider as it is clear that you don't have the proper background.

On another note, stop posting this same question on other people's threads. Posting the same question multiple times is not the way to get your question answers, its a way to make you look stupid.

you have no idea about GRE.

Neither about meterial source nor about meterial.

I don't know anything about the GRE? I actually scored quite well on it.

I don't know what institution granted you a masters with no basic knowledge of topology or algebra, but it makes me upset that such institutions exist.

I also recommend you working on your English, which is lackluster to say the least.

It is saying that for getting marks in GRE is not a proof of intelligence. A Dogee can get well score like u

### Re: HELP in getting high score in GRE Math subject test

Fari, you don't need "tips", you need to learn the material. Either

1. enroll in a school that will actually teach you mathematics, or

2. buy some math books and teach yourself

There's no way around this. There is no tip that can teach you mathematics other than studying hard for a long time. And of course blerg is right; posting this in other threads will only annoy people.
