Given the facts, GRE prep must be a difficult nut to crack for individuals who are still in college. Students in their final semester of college are always overwhelmed with projects, placements, and other obligations. So the best seasons are the Spring semester (between January and May) or the Fall semester (between September and December) (between late August to late December). When we initially begin GRE preparation, the first thought that comes to mind is, “Can I prepare for the GRE in one month?” No GRE preparation is complete without complete dedication and devotion.
