    There is not enough material available for the revised GRE General test. I have my test on August 2, 2011. Could you suggest me some books? I have ETS Official Guide to the Revised GRE general test and Kaplan’s New GRE Premier, but I need some more material. Please help me.

      You are right. There is very little available. Some of the question types are being carried into the Revised GRE. Therefore, you could use the current GRE prep book from GRE – “Practicing To Take The GRE”.

      I believe that Princeton Review has also published a book about the Revised GRE. But, in general you should stick with the material from the test designer.

      You may want to check for updates at:
