The Princeton Review won't overwhelm students with four centuries of literature -- they'll teach students only what they need to know to score higher on the GRE Literature. "There's a big difference. In Cracking the GRE Literature, TPR will teach test-takers to think like the test-makers.
This is accomplished by teaching students how to:
Eliminate answer choices that look right but are planted to fool the test-taker
Improve one's score by focusing on the material most likely to appear on the test
Prepare with TPR's brief summaries of major literary works and figures
Review TPR's introduction to literary terms, verse forms, and schools of criticism
*This book includes a full-length simulated GRE Literature test. All of The Princeton Review's sample test questions are like the ones test-takers will see on the actual GRE Literature test, and every solution is fully explained.
