How to Study for the GRE Test.

When it comes to studying for the GRE test, you have four basic options: books, classes, a tutor, or online prep. While we’re obviously a little biased, there are definite pros and cons to each option.

Let’s take a look at each of these options:

GRE Books If you’re a self-starter with lots of energy and motivation, working with GRE books can be a good option. They’re inexpensive, and you can follow them at your own pace. 
On the other hand, without having taken the test or studied it, it can be hard to determine which books will actually equip you for test day (Chris shares some thoughts on this over it the Best GRE Books post). 
Also, just following a book straight through may not be the best option for you if you have particular weaknesses you need to address, as almost everyone does, and need special guidance.
With all of that said, Magoosh has an eBook you can get for free here, and an affordable paperback GRE Prep book that you can buy on Amazon. Both are excellent!

What Is Formal Education?

In our previous lesson, we talked about what real education is and it impacts on our society.

If you have not already read this begin here:

In this lesson, however, we want to look at what formal education involves.

Formal education refers to learning through a program of instruction in an educational institution, adult training center or in the workplace. This type of education is generally recognized in a qualification a certificate.

The basics, academic and trade skills are exposed to the person through formal education. 

Thus, this form of education is also referred to as mainstream or traditional education. 

Beginning with nursery education, a person learns the various aspects as he advances towards primary, secondary and higher education. While nursery, primary and secondary education are received by a student at a school, higher education, or post-secondary education, is generally disclosed at a college or university.

Formal education is organized, guided by a formal curriculum; leads to a formally recognized credential such as a high school completion diploma or a degree, and is often guided and recognized by the government at some level. 

Teachers are usually trained as professionals in some way.


(i) Planned with a particular end in view.

(iii) Well-defined and systematic curriculum

(iv) Given by specially qualified teachers.

(v) Includes activities outside the classroom
