8. Do they still have those books of practice tests? Your kid might
derive a lot of benefit at far less cost from using one of those. That's what I did before taking the GRE. All I did was take the practice tests and then analyze what I was missing. I learned that I was rushing through the verbal sections, and didn't need to--I could do the quick-answer problems first, and still had plenty of time to read and re-read the longer passages at my normal reading speed, which eliminated errors. Same story for the "logic" test: the practicing taught me to quickly recognize problem types.
