In 2018, I studied in one of the famous academies in Lahore, after paying a hefty amount and preparing for the GRE for a few months, I score terribly below 300. I was dishearted and I stopped dreaming about my higher education.
In late 2019, Universities admissions were close and I approached Faisal at Scholar Den for University Admission, He advised me to improve my GRE score. I hardly had one month, so I start preparing for the GRE. As I was dejected after my first attempt but then I was introduced to Scholar Den Verbal and Quant resources and I started working on Scholar Den questions which were very hard and they really pushed me to do better. The Verbal lectures are very useful as they introduce one to the structure of writing good English which is very beneficial for Analytical writing. The Verbal questions are very challenging and thought-provoking and prepare you for the actual test
Scholar Den mentor, Faisal bhai, helped me in improving my Verbal score by 7 points, in just one month. His advice on the Verbal section is really helpful. It helped me overcome my weakness of lack of concentration in reading longer texts. A technique that really helped me in increasing my Verbal score. I was able to feel comfortable comprehending longer passages in the actual test.
In just a matter of 1 month, I was able to increase my GRE score by 14 points (7 points in Verbal and 7 points in Quant).
I wanted to score 65 percentile in Verbal, which I achieved after just one month of study. These days, I am applying for the admissions and wish you all the best of luck with your GRE preparations.
I have done my GRE with 162 in the Quant section and 145 in Verbal sections. Talking about Verbal being an Engineering student I did not focus on Verbal but I would like to say that All the mocks out there in the market is irrelevant related to Verbal. Verbal is about the context. All words in GRE were known to me but in context, I suffered.
Talking about the Quant section, I did 5 lb and 285 Quant Q's by Scholar Den and I had 80% correct answers. I would have scored 165+ but I messed up on the exam day. So I would like to recommend Scholar Den practice questions if you are aiming 165+ in Quant.
Study period: 2.5 month
Hours: 2-2.5 hours daily
I am currently based in Australia. I am tempted to jot down this review as I found Scholar Den an amazing source of preparation for the GRE test. I started my preparation with ETS guides and took the power prep mock test after a week. I managed to score a 160 and 150 in Quantitative and Verbal respectively. It was motivating, but as soon as I started practicing the Scholar Den GRE resources, I realized in order to score 165+ I need to work hard.
The question bank in Scholar Den is a well structured and well-organised set of practice problems, which covers the entire length and breadth of the GRE. The difficulty level is close to the actual GRE and each question stimulates thinking from a different perspective. The analytics and timed practices provide a good insight of one’s weaknesses and strengths. Moreover, the video tutorials are an added value with a dedicated team ready to mentor all the time. I strongly recommend Scholar Den to all the prospective test-takers.
I recently took the GRE test and scored 318 with 166 in Quant.
I would like to share my experience with you.
For Quant, I started studying various resources for concept building.
After going through all the concept building books and practice questions my score was in the range of 150-160. I tried very hard to cross 160 but it was not working.
I heard a lot of good reviews about scholar den and then I thought I will give it a try.
Then I tried the Scholar Den questions. The good thing about it was that each of the questions of Scholar Den requires a new logic and it improved my score significantly and it’s question's difficulty level was same as the real test and my score drastically improved to 165+ and finally I end up scoring 166 in the real test.
I would highly recommend Scholar Den if your aim is to get a good score in a short period of time
I had been following the Scholar Den for quite a while.
Fasial bhai had been extremely helpful in providing all sorts of advice for the GRE preparation. Their GRE PREP questions were a major factor in my improvement in both Quant and Verbal. Both sections had the same difficulty level as the real GRE and the explanation videos were really helpful as well.
My diagnostic score was 290 and with 2 months preparation of understanding the concepts and practicing the Scholar Den question I was able to improve my score to 315 (161 Q,154V) The Scholar den analytics helped me identify my weak points and my pace in comparison to others. Scholar den was an essential part of my GRE Prep and had helped me to achieve my target score.
25 Points Improvement in 2 months
In 2018 I made up my mind to apply for Fulbright scholarship, as it was in trend and everyone was talking about this. So this was my first interaction with "foreign scholarships" and I don't have an idea how many difficult obstacles (especially GRE) would be there. I start preparing for the GRE and always considered myself the master of mathematics as I used to get 90% in my high school (obviously cramming) and was sure to get 165+ and guess what, I ended up with 148 only in Quant. Yeah, you read right, it's not a typo. I never had face such failure in life, so it disappointed me so much. But long story short I get provincial acceptance from king Fahd university and they give me limited time to submit GRE to get final approval. I was so scared and GRE becomes a nightmare for me. But I decided to challenge my fare and start collecting material again. But this time I decided to go for the right material rather than the "bulk of material". Manhattan books were extremely helpful but questions were not up to the mark (according to test-takers).
One day while scrolling down on Facebook, I come to know about Scholar Den questions and many people were recommending those. There were 200 questions. I tried to solve 2 3 questions but those were difficult and I just shut down my laptop. Frustration was at the peak, but I decided to face my fears and again went to those questions. After 50 questions I realized that my mind starts thinking differently and start looking for small points and shortcuts. It really changes my way of thinking.
I appeared for the test and scored 157 in Quant with just one month of preparation. I increased my scores by 9 points. Although those are still average scores, but those scores fulfil the requirement of my program.
I am extremely thankful to Scholar Den for proving such a big platform to students who can't afford expensive preparation material. And now I heard that they have extended their pool to 350 questions. I wish them the best of luck. Scholar Den is quite reliable, up to the mark, and relevant to the actual GRE.
9 Points Improvement in 1 month
I have a psychology major. I took my GRE and scored 320 with 168 in Quant. I would like to thank ScholarDen for their continuous support and guidance during my GRE preparation especially Sir Faisal Khan, who has been of great help and was available to answer all queries throughout.
I would recommend solving ScholarDen's Quant practice questions as they are very similar to the real test difficulty level.
First, when I got information about ScholarDen questions, I thought it's just a random website with questions but then I practiced those questions and liked it and these questions gave me the real GRE experience!!
I even had my friend who gave GRE and scored well after solving ScholarDen questions!! So I completed all the Quants questions from ScholarDen and they were superb ones!!
Due to ScholarDen practice questions, I received 169/170 in my GRE !!
Thanks to ScholarDen!
ScholarDen GRE resource is an amazing study tool. I was able to learn everything that I needed to know in a self-guided environment that worked with my hectic schedule. It allowed me to skip ahead video explanations when I was comfortable with the GRE concepts used in the solution and repeat the video explanations when I was in doubt about the relevant concept used in the solution. I solved 20 questions a day on average and completed my prep in 2 months.
GRE - Done and Dusted. 😁
When I started hearing the feedback from test-takers that the GRE Quant was getting harder, I did not have an idea of how hard the questions would be. That's when I came to know about ScholarDen (SD) Maths question bank and it's same high standards to real GRE questions. I made use of SD and it was a good source for Quant practice in my last few weeks of prep, which made me more ready for harder questions.
ScholarDen's GRE study plan and resources helped me to have a guided approach towards acing the GRE. I was a bit terrified at first, but then I successfully followed their plan. I was able to score decent in Verbal and also managed to get 167 in Quant which was an amazing feat for me and overall improved my score from 289 to 319! All thanks to SD!
I took GRE a few days. I think on-screen practice with time limitation is more necessary than practicing from books. In this regard, ScholarDen is very helpful. It provides practice questions covering almost every topic. Most importantly these problems are of real GRE standard. It also provides the timing details, which is very helpful for time management.
I am grateful to ScholarDen as it helped me a lot in getting a handsome Quant score.
I'd like to thank ScholarDen for sharing useful resources. I recently took my GRE and scored 164 in Quant. I had limited time so I booked my GRE test slot even before starting the preparation. This kinda builds up pressure to finish the Quant and Verbal sections within the time. For Quant, I followed the ETS official guide and solved questions on scholarden.com online. The online quality question bank with analytics which analyzes your performance on those questions helped me a lot in preparing for the test smartly.
I wish the test takers all the best.
I took my GRE test this week. First of all, I would like to thank ScholarDen mentors for their great help as far as how should I revise and what resources should I use. For Quant, I have only practiced ScholarDen Practice questions and it helped me a lot to get a clear idea about the type of questions and its difficulty. Plus, the questions were similar to the real test. For Verbal, I could have scored better but the problem I faced was to stay focused for a long time: I didn't do well in the last Verbal section. I advise you to read the articles every day. Honestly, I didn't follow this advice but the reading passages on the test were all boring and almost all of them were about feminism and I felt like I'm not used to reading boring stuff and I couldn't focus well enough. That's the major obstacle I had on the day of the test.
Good luck to all of you on your GRE.
ScholarDen is the best emerging resource available as their GRE questions are similar to what you're gonna see on real GRE. The Verbal guide is very helpful for beginners to understand the basics.
I improved my score from 294 to 315!
My score improvement was almost 13 points in 25 days of serious perparation.
I used ScholarDen website to solve Quant questions. The videos at the end of each sum helped with the concepts. My best areas were arithmetic and algebra. Geometry(parabola) and CP problems were my weak areas which were accurately shown on the website. It also helped me compare my solving time with an average time of others. I would highly recommend anybody preparing for GRE to use the ScholarDen website.
I just took my GRE yesterday. By profession, I am a dentist. I got a 152 VR, and 157 QR. I was the most worried about the QR section since math is not my forte. This score is enough to apply for dental school orthodontic residency since the application is more based on other factors. Taking the GRE and studying for it was definitely random for me. It’s been so long since I learned vocab and math!! Thank you for your guidance! I deeply appreciate it. ScholarDen and ETS were the most similar to the real GRE standards. Thank you for recommending the resources and helping me!
I have appeared in my GRE & I wanted to take a moment to present a very very special gratitude to the team for being active to grant me your worthy advice esp. the Quant questions you guys gathered on ScholarDen & the conceptual understanding of Verbal through notes and group discussion really helped me a lot even in this short period of time to put my level best in my exam. Indeed, ScholarDen has played a vital role in my journey of GRE. Thank you very much for this support.
Thank you for creating ScholarDen website. I can now understand the basics of sentence completion and how they are made after reading 2 out of the lesson notes section for sentence equivalent on the website. I hope to get the best out of it. HIGHLY RESOURCEFUL.
I have recently taken the GRE test. I used ScholarDen Practice Questions during my preparation. The practice questions are of great quality.
These days, the real GRE Test Quant Section has gone tougher so Princeton, Manhattan and Kaplan Questions are not of the same standards. However, I read a few success stories of students using ScholarDen Questions which matches with the real GRE Standards, so I used them. I find myself lucky to use those resources as it is of the same standard as the real GRE questions. However, what I wanted more is that they should also introduce a mock test, that would help us to practice questions more.
Also, ScholarDen platform analytics accurately predicted my weak and strong areas, which helped me to study smartly in the short span of time.
I took my GRE in the last few days of November 2019. I praticed my Quant questions from ScholarDen. Well, the 200 questions are worth practicing. These questions mimic the real GRE. In Quant, the quality of questions is of the same standards as the real test. The practice questions almost covered all the topics. It also helps to customize your preparation and practice the specific type of questions, if you want. Though its an upcoming promising I think it would be better if ScholarDen include questions from Data interpretation too.
