How to study for GRE Subject Biology?
There are many exam resources (i.e. study materials) for GRE Subject Biology.
In the GRE Subject Biology bulletin by ETS, there are
the following parts of the topics for the exam:

III. Ecology and Evolution 33-34%
GRE Subject Biology Summary eBook
This eBook contains excepts from the following textbooks related to the
"Cellular and Molecular Biology" part of GRE Subject Biology in 45 pages.
1. Molecular Biology of The Cell (Alberts, Johnson, Lewis, Raff, Roberts & Walter)
2. Biochemistry (Stryer)
3. Genetics (Weaver & Hedrick)
In other words, the following topics, which are present in the "Cellular and Molecular Biology" part
of GRE Subject Biology, are excerpted from the above textbooks:
A. Cellular Structure and Function 16-17%
1. Biological compounds
Macromolecular structure and bonding
Abiotic origin of biological molecules 2. Enzyme activity, receptor binding, and regulation 3. Major metabolic pathways and regulation
Respiration, fermentation, and photosynthesis
Synthesis and degradation of macromolecules
Hormonal control and intracellular messengers 4. Membrane dynamics and cell surfaces
Transport, endocytosis, and exocytosis
Electrical potentials and neurotransmitters
Mechanisms of cell recognition, cell junctions,
Cell wall and extracellular matrix 5. Organelles: structure, function, and targeting
6. Cytoskeleton, motility, and shape
Bacterial flagella and movement 7. Cell cycle, growth, division, and regulation
B. Genetics and Molecular Biology 16-17%
1. Genetic foundations
Mendelian inheritance; Pedigree analysis
Prokaryotic genetics (transformation,
transduction, and conjugation)
Genetic mapping 2. Chromatin and chromosomes
Polytene chromosomes 3. Genome sequence organization
Introns and exons; Single-copy and
Transposable elements 4. Genome maintenance
DNA replication; DNA mutation and repair 5. Gene expression and regulation in prokaryotes
and eukaryotes: mechanisms
The operon; Promoters and enhancers;
Transcription factors; RNA and protein
synthesis; Processing and modifications
of both RNA and protein 6. Gene expression and regulation: effects
Control of normal development; Cancer
Signaling mechanisms in cells 7. Immunobiology
Cellular basis of immunity; Antibody
diversity and synthesis
Antigen-antibody interactions 8. Bacteriophages, animal viruses, and plant viruses
Viral genomes, replication, and assembly
Virus-host cell interactions 9. Recombinant DNA methodology
Restriction endonucleases; Blotting and
Restriction fragment length polymorphisms;
DNA cloning, sequencing, and analysis;
Polymerase chain reaction
This unique study resource was prepared specifically for students taking
GRE Subject Biology.
This eBook is a chapter-by-chapter summary of the Biology, Cell Biology and Genetics textbooks. Only topics that are relevant to the exam were summarized in this eBook. Reading thousands of pages from textbooks will cost you months of time. However, reading 62 pages of this summary eBook should take you no more than a day or two. Even if you have studied the textbooks, this eBook will be a perfect guide and study material to review your knowledge.
Since Stryer's Biochemistry has many details that are irrelevant to the GRE Subject Biology exam topics, many chapters and unnecessary details of some chapters were eliminated. The same was done to the summaries of the other two textbooks, but to a lesser extent, since more relevant details are present in them. As a result, our Summary eBook became a useful nutshell of all the concepts that are described in the textbooks listed above, which are expected to be on the GRE Subject Biology exam.
What are the other benefits of having this eBook?
Well, first of all, there are about 10-15 sales of this eBook per week - which means that many people who are going to take the GRE Subject Biology test, at the same test date that you are planning to take, already have this handy refresher Summary eBook. Why should you give others any advantage over you? Why should you be one step behind them?
The second reason: This Summary eBook will be useful to any Molecular Biologist or Biochemist even beyond the GRE Subject Biology test - you can always go back to this nutshell reference and quickly search, by using "Search" function in the PDF file, any term or concept you want to review during your MS or PhD thesis project. This eBook also has an index, which makes the printed version of the eBook easy to navigate too.
The third reason: The contents of our Summary eBook are 100% relevant to the exam topics (see ETS website). If you start reading any other textbook, say Stryer's Biochemistry for example, you will encounter many chapters that are irrelevant to the GRE Subject Biology test. Even the chapters that are mainly related to the GRE Subject Biology test will contain many irrelevant topics that are not worth spending your precious pre-exam time on. Therefore, by buying our Summary eBook you are not only buying a good study guide for the exam and a useful reference future academic career, but you are also buying yourself a lot of time for the exam preparation.
