## Geometry Strategies - Part I

Summary

Mastering geometry for the GRE requires both visual and logical skills, emphasizing the importance of diagrams for problem-solving.

- Always create or redraw diagrams to visually process and solve geometry problems, marking them with given and deduced information.
- Use symbols and notations like squares for perpendicular and arrows for parallel lines to enhance understanding and problem-solving efficiency.
- Extending lines or adding new ones in diagrams can facilitate calculations, and assigning variables to lengths or angles allows for algebraic solutions.
- Develop the skill to dissect diagrams, looking at both the details and the bigger picture, to apply geometric properties effectively.
- The ability to switch perspectives between detailed and broader views of diagrams is crucial for solving complex geometry problems.
