Prepare for your GRE Test without paying a cent with GRE Prep Book

GRE or Graduate Record Examination General Test is worth taking, not merely to get an admission to a university or a college, but for your overall career and education as well. By taking a GRE Test and gauging the score, you would have some idea about your level of critical thinking, verbal reasoning, analytical writing and quantitative reasoning.

As with any other test, it is best to prepare beforehand. When you practice for your test, you also get a wonderful chance to develop your skills in critical thinking, verbal reasoning, analytical writing and quantitative reasoning. GRE Prep Book offers such a wonderful opportunity. The online site, which was set up by three students, offers various forms of tests and practice questions for GRE.

You do not have to pay a single cent to try out the various tests and practice questions. "Practice makes perfect" - GRE Prep Book seems to have taken a great deal of initiative to set up the right questions for covering all the aspects of a GRE General Test. However, I think that it would be better if GRE Prep Book removed the word "pariah" from its list of "20 GRE words you can use to talk behind people’s back".

The word "pariah" is highly sensitive especially among people of Indian origin. It was widely used in India to refer to those who were from the lowest Indian caste. GRE is mainly aimed at students and prospective students from all over the world. So, it might be better to remove the particular word from its online site.

If you are looking for a great opportunity to practice for GRE or to look at possible GRE Test questions, check out GRE Prep Book.

Gold Rush Alaska - Should you try?

The price of gold is expected to increase over the next few months due to the weakening US dollar. Many countries such as India and China bought gold bars for safekeeping. So, if you want to make some money in spite of the bad economic condition, gold is the perfect commodity.

You can try your hand at spot gold trading or buying and selling bullion gold coins or bars. Another alternative is to buy and sell scrap gold. Some people believe that there is gold in Alaska especially after reading the news related to Sarah Palin. You never know. There might be some truth in it.

A few years ago, some people found gold in some remote and unexplored areas in Europe. So, yes, there is a possibility of finding gold in Alaska, especially in unexplored areas. Should you head down to Alaska for a spot of adventure? Why not? You may strike GOLD!

New Year resolution for 2011 : Save, save, save!

That is all what I can think of. Save, save, save during 2011, wherever and whenever I can...for a rainy day or an emergency!

It may seem impossible. But, as the saying goes, a penny saved is a penny gained. I know of people who earned little and managed to save a great deal over the years. Of course, they made some sacrifices. A simple life may seem unpalatable. But, there are benefits. Imagine spending so much money to rich foods at restaurants.

After a couple of years, you might be spending much money for your health! By living a simple life, you have less cravings and yearnings for money. So, you are much happier than before. Some people have left a life of luxury for a more simple and peaceful life.

When it comes to saving money, there are many ways to do so. By spending some time to compare prices, you can spend less for your household or other necessities. Buying in large quantities can save you quite a sum of money. Instead of taking the car everywhere, think about taking public transport. It might be cheaper.
