## 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 use or draw a diagram to visually process and solve geometry problems, enhancing understanding and solution accuracy.
• Label diagrams with given information and deduced facts, using symbols for perpendicular and parallel lines, and consider extending or adding lines to aid calculations.
• Assign variables to lengths or angles as needed, utilizing algebra to find solutions.
• Develop the skill to 'look big' and 'look small' within diagrams, recognizing that properties applicable to smaller figures also apply to larger ones, facilitating easier problem-solving.
• Practice with diagrams not only aids in solving problems but also engages visual intelligence, crucial for geometry.
