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

There are many resources on this topic, 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.

  • $\begingroup$ 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. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @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." $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 23, 2016 at 2:21
  • $\begingroup$ Okay thanks got it $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Looks like the ETS link is broken now, but searching for "gre ets khan" brings me to this discussion on the KA page. This looks to be the same list that was linked, based on this 2016 snapshot from the Wayback Machine. $\endgroup$
