This is just a score and one of the criteria the admission cells pay heed to. There are other matters to be taken care of – your academic qualifications, the marks obtained, the SOP (Statement of Purpose) and the LOR (Letter of Recommendation).

There are several books available for the preparation of GRE. Barron’s, Kaplan, ETS Official, Manhattan Prep are among the good books. These books carry CDs inside for your preparation and mock test.
