More practice problems?

Post by phrygian777 » Sun Sep 18, 2011 4:19 pm

This post says:

"When I took the exam, GRE ETS mailed a small Physics Test Descriptive Booklet which contains 31 sample problems. These were intended to be a representation of the types of problems found on the physics GRE. I would imagine this booklet still does a nice job fulfilling its original intent. I think I have a copy of this in .pdf form on my old computer. If somebody wants me to try and dig this up then I will give it a try."

Does anyone know where to find these problems, or if they are any different than the already released practice problems?

Also, reading about the REA physics GRE book it seems that many of the problems are unrepresentative of the test and that there are many errors in the book. Is there a guide anywhere that says which problems are useful and/or lists the errors?

Thanks a lot!

I've been developing a Physics GRE review book (which, unlike the REA purple book, IS representative of the real exam) with 3 full sample exams and loads of practice problems - see my post to this same subforum "Physics GRE review book available soon." What we have so far is on our website, Enjoy, and good luck studying!
