Did you know that you can attend the first session of any of our online or in-person GRE courses absolutely free? We’re not kidding! Check out our upcoming courses here.
Just over a month ago we had our GRE instructors weigh in on the best books to read this summer if you’re prepping for the GRE (or if you just love a great novel!). We hope that you had the chance to pick up one, two, or all of the books from our first round of recommendations and are hungry for more! With only a few weeks left of summer, we would like to satisfy that hunger with a fresh batch of reading suggestions from our tried and trusted GRE instructors. Bon appÃ©tit!
Recommendations from Stacey Koprince:
The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell: This novel is technically in the science fiction category, mostly because it’s set in the future with some space travel and alien encounters – but it’s much more of a philosophical book dealing with social issues, what happens when two dissimilar communities collide, etc. Lots of great GRE vocab!
Children of God by Mary Doria Russel: This is the sequel to The Sparrow. It is also classified as a science fiction novel and deals with the same issues of faith, morality, etc.
