If your score is less than this threshhold number, then it is advisable to consider preparatory classes.

An effective GRE regimen can be worked out by getting enrolled with a good test prep program which offers following advantages:

  1. While one is self-motivated to excel in GRE, an external stimulus goes a long way in inspiring him/her towards accomplishing their GRE goals. It is similar to running a marathon, where the other people running with you inspire you to continue.
