Hi guys...

Does anyone know if we can get questions on the actual GRE that we have already encoutered on the powerprep or old ETS tests?

?

I've heard several people here say they did. That's one reason I keep taking the PP tests repeatedly. (I've found if I restart the computer I have a good chance of getting more "new" questions.)

Interesting... I wish I could get them all the same! ;) Still, I would be scoring low, but... better than without knowing any of them?

Restarting? Maybe they use some common seed for its randomic generator algorithm (techy-talk) if you don't reboot.

I have heard that people have had questions from their PowerPrep. I am going to memorize my PowerPrep just in case...:shy:

Well, that was my theory, but now there doesn't seem to be any pattern. I don't know why sometimes I get a slew of mostly new questions.

There is definitely a finite set of vocab that you could see on the real test, so it's entirely possible that you'll see questions from the published materials on your real test.

But that would be so for any large pool of vocab-based questions (i.e., analogies and antonyms)--take any pool of a thousand or so of these questions, and the chances that one will appear on your test naturally increase.

I think the most important thing is to focus on the wordlist from kaplan or peterson guide. I have also seen that a lot of testtakers are recommending baron.
just build your vocabs around some key words.
