5 September 1st, 2010 Dear Student, Thank you for picking up one of the Manhattan GRE Strategy Guides—we hope that it refreshes your memory of some of the reading skills and SAT words that you haven’t used in years. Maybe it will even teach you a new thing or two. As with most accomplishments, there were many people involved in the book that you’re holding. First and foremost is Zeke Vanderhoek, the founder of MG Prep. Zeke was a lone tutor in New York when he start- ed the Company in 2000. Now, ten years later, the Company has Instructors and offices nationwide and contributes to the studies and successes of thousands of students each year. Our Manhattan GRE Strategy Guides are based on the continuing experiences of our Instructors and our students. On the Company side, we are indebted to many of our Instructors, including but not limited to Jen Dziura, Stacey Koprince, David Mahler, Chris Ryan, Michael Schwartz, and Tommy Wallach, all of whom either wrote or edited the books to their present form. Dan McNaney and Cathy Huang provided their formatting expertise to make the books as user-friendly as possible. Last, many people, too numerous to list here but no less appreciated, assisted in the development of the online resources that accompany this guide. At Manhattan GRE, we continually aspire to provide the best Instructors and resources possible. We hope that you’ll find our dedication manifest in this book. If you have any comments or questions, please e-mail me at [email protected] I’ll be sure that your comments reach Chris and the rest of the team—and I’ll read them too. Best of luck in preparing for the GRE! Sincerely, Andrew Yang President Manhattan GRE Manha an GRE 138 West 25th St., 7th Floor NY, NY 10001 Tel: 212-721-7400 Fax: 646-514-7425
