Hi paulojair

That’s not an easy question, but maybe you could structure your “at, in, on” learning as follows:

at, in, on — when connected with time: There are some basic rules and standard exceptions. Any good grammar book should help here.

at, in, on — when connected with place: Again, a good grammar book can help

at, in, on — when part of a phrase/phrasal verb: You should always learn these words together (as one ‘unit’)
e.g. ‘be good at’, ‘be involved in’, ‘go on’, etc.

Does that help?

Hi paulojai,

You might like to look at some material I wrote for the site on Prepositions. If you go to esl lessons and look in the index for Prepositions, you will find some articles that might help.

Wow, that website with vocabulary practice is really helpful. I already took the test and did well on the Verbal section, but I think I would have benefited from that practice. I’ll definitely recommend it to some of my friends planning to take the test soon … Thanks

thanks dis is working for me!!

thanks a ton!!!

Nice… I found this one useful. You can just go on and on and on. I have no idea how many words there are, but it’s a bottomless pit of practice.

I think that to do well on the verbal part of the GRE, you need to have a very good vocabulary. I mean, come on, do people really need to know what a preposition is? I don’t think so. Besides, learning rules won’t help you at all. Instead, just take practice tests and learn your vocabulary!

Here are some sites:

Also, the GRE Big Book is the best practice reference of them all, and if you can find it, it has about 30 practice tests, all of which are genuine.

Good luck. :slight_smile:

Hi aaronempy

Thanks for the site suggestions and input.

Can we assume that you’re a native speaker of English?

To answer your question about prepositions, no, people don’t necessarily need to know what a preposition is, but wouldn’t you agree that knowing how to use them and what they mean in context is important? This is often difficult for non-native speakers. :wink:

Probably the best way to learn preposition usage is in context – i.e. reading, listening, learning groups of words together as one unit (collocations), etc. and then using the words yourself. This really isn’t much different from learning vocabulary effectively.

thanks a lot… the tests are a real help…

i can even take them in my office… over n over again…
