امروز کتابی که قصد دارم معرفی کنم، کتابی است با عنوان GRE Physics (REA) - The Best Test Prep for the GRE (Test Preps) . کتابهای GRE مربوط به امتحانات ورودی دانشگاه های آمریکا هستند که شامل تست هایی در زمینه رشته تحصیلی مورد درخواست هستند. این کتاب تست فیزیک برای امتحان GRE است. کسانی که علاقه مند به ادامه تحصیل در دانشگاه های آمریکا هستند، حتما این امتحان را می دهند.
امروز این کتاب را پیدا کردم و اون رو تقدیم به همه دانشجویان فیزیک ایران می کنم برای دستیابی به سطح آمادگی لازم .

This test preparation book includes four full-length exams with detailed explanations modeled after the actual GRE in Physics. Knowledge of mechanics, electromagnetism, atomic physics, physicoptics and wave phenomena, quantum mechanics, special relativity, thermodynamics and statistical mechanics, laboratory methods, and advanced topics tested. Includes a general physics review of all topics tested on the exam. For physics students bound for graduate school.
Summary: Horrible Book
Many of the answers they provide are simply wrong. The content does not match the actual Physics GRE material.
Summary: Really good
This book covers a lot of material.
There's much even a bright undergraduate student in Physics is not expected to have studied or ever encountered.
But so goes the GRE exam too, to a lesser extent.
This can be somewhat annoying for those who are accustomed to quickly and easily going through problem sets.
However, provided you accept working on the exercises of this book as something which will add to your background and "enlightment", not merely as exercises that will test how well you master the minimal physics background every would-be graduate student is expected to be well acquainted with, you will greatly benefit from this book.
Summary: Some of the answers are wrong
And simple math answers too. For example, (1/2)(2/3) = ? They say it's 1/6. I'm of the opinion that it's actually 1/3. That's just one of several I've ran across.
Still, it's better than nothing, but I think looking at your old college textbooks and doing the ETS questions is probably a better route.
Summary: Let's see
Hmmm I don't understand why there is so much negativity about this.
I think the point
is to get
I have only looked
at a couple problems so far. One of them had a problem where u had to solve a
VERY involved quadratic equation. Not that this is particularly hard to do. But
it could easily take like 20 minutes to do by hand. Maybe ten minutes if
We'll see how it goes.
Summary: This book annoys me.
I can point out many reasons why this book must never be bought. The main two are
. The review is ridiculously basic. At least, here in Brasil, every high school student knows 70-80% of everything that is written there.
. There are lots of errors through the tests. Sometimes the questions are wrong, sometimes the choices are wrong, others the resolution is wrong. And believe me, there are cases where all three are simultanously wrong.
