The Physics GRE plays a significant role in deciding admissions to nearly all US physics Ph.D. programs, yet few exam-prep books focus on the test's actual content and unique structure. Recognized as one of the best student resources available, this tailored guide has been thoroughly updated for the current Physics GRE. It contains carefully selected review material matched to all of the topics covered, as well as tips and tricks to help solve problems under time pressure. It features three full-length practice exams, revised to accurately reflect the difficulty of the current test, with fully worked solutions so that students can simulate taking the test, review their preparedness, and identify areas in which further study is needed. Written by working physicists who took the Physics GRE for their own graduate admissions to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, this self-contained reference guide will help students achieve their best score.

Advance praise: 'I have used Conquering the Physics GRE as a resource for our annual 'Southern California Physics GRE Bootcamp' program for the past few years. Of the various resources I have tried, [this book] has consistently been the most popular and the most effective in helping physics majors prepare for the Physics GRE. It provides the right combination of concept material, exam problem-solving strategies, and practice questions tuned to this particular exam. I would also recommend this book not just for the GRE, but as a general study guide for undergraduate physics courses.' Adam Burgasser, University of California, San Diego

Advance praise: 'This gem has become a staple of our course preparing undergraduates for the Physics GRE. The practice exams are even more well matched to the real thing than are the old ETS exams, due to the evolution of the exam. The study sections are unique in their focus on efficiency in problem solving, an important skill not only for the Physics GRE, but for any practicing physicist. My favorite is the chapter on 'Tips and Tricks' - the smallest, but most powerful chapter in the book.' James McLean, State University of New York, Geneseo
