这些外刊中的大部分文章不仅充满了高级词汇，而且在语气和风格上也与 GRE 的文章相似。这些文章来自各个领域，包括商业、科学和文学，选材极为广泛。
我们先来看一篇来自The Atlantic 大西洋月刊的商科文章节选：
Outsider, non-founder CEOs are often overvalued because many corporate boards think the answer to their problems is a superstar CEO with an outsized reputation. This leads them to overpay for people who are good at creating outsized reputations through networking, interviewing, and taking credit for other peoples’ achievements—all bad indicators of future success.
Rakesh Khurana has amply shown how this delusion of the charismatic savior creates a dysfunctional market for CEOs, allowing the small number of existing public-company CEOs to demand and receive extravagant compensation. The myth of the generalist CEO is bolstered by the many fawning media portrayals where CEOs say that their key jobs are understanding, hiring, and motivating people—leading board members to believe that you can run a technology company without knowing anything about technology.
这篇阅读文章非常适合用来提升阅读水平，因为这篇文章里面有许多是需要注意的高频 GRE 单词（fawning、bolstered、ample/amply）。这段摘录有大量的分析，有助于锻炼思维、提升阅读能力。
如果你对商科类的文章不感兴趣，或者想要想要改变阅读方式。那么科学类的文章也是不错的选择。GRE Verbal 通常有一篇科学类的阅读理解文章。虽然GRE考试的文章可能比上面这篇文章还要枯燥，但 GRE 阅读的科学文章在语气和风格上与推荐的杂志还是非常接近的。
