My brother is taking the normal GRE (not the math subject test), and I need to help him learn geometry. I know basic geometry myself, but I need a book that will present it well and will have good exercises. Any suggestions are appreciated.

It seems to me the GRE covers about 50% of U.S. highschool geometry.

Topics in the GRE include:

  • Vertical angles
  • Parallel lines with a transverse
  • Area of "slices" of circles
  • Exterior angles of triangles
  • Similar Triangles
  • Triangles inscribed in circles

etc.

There are many resources here, most of which are profit-making and at some point require a fee. At least one exception is the linking of the GRE topics to the relevant Kahn Academy videos: link here.

Also, ETS itself offers a free review package, with sample questions: PDF download.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the response. I think you may be missing a link though in your first sentence. $\endgroup$ – Ovi Nov 23 '16 at 2:14
  • $\begingroup$ @Ovi: Both links work for me. I made the links more prominent. $\endgroup$ – Joseph O'Rourke Nov 23 '16 at 2:17
  • $\begingroup$ Ah yes I was able to access those, but you said "There are many resources here, most of which are profit-making...". I am a little confused as to what the "here" refers to. $\endgroup$ – Ovi Nov 23 '16 at 2:19

    $\begingroup$ @Ovi: By "here" I mean on this topic. If you search you will find many sites offering review help, but for a fee. I did not bother linking to them. Just search for "GRE geometry review." $\endgroup$ – Joseph O'Rourke Nov 23 '16 at 2:21
  • $\begingroup$ Okay thanks got it $\endgroup$ – Ovi Nov 23 '16 at 2:23
