Why is this

GRE Subject Test - Past Papers, Books, Advice

off-topic but

that

recommending books for GRE math subject test

on-topic?

Edit: How could the former question be improved to become on-topic/re-opened (https://math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/32798)?

    $\begingroup$ You should perhaps point out that the first Question was authored by you. At the point it was closed, it was primarily four links with very little context. Since then it has been edited both as to tags and in some minor ways to add context. I'm frankly on the fence whether it has sufficient context, esp. since it does seem to ask multiple things, but if you want it reopened, there is the canonical thread here on Meta to ask for that. $\endgroup$ – hardmath Nov 25 '20 at 0:27

  • $\begingroup$ @hardmath wait do you it could be re-opened as is? you make some good points. actually the point of the question was really just for the sake of the answer. like sharing knowledge Q&A style. i just wanted to be helpful to fellow GRE takers... $\endgroup$ – BCLC Nov 26 '20 at 7:16
  • $\begingroup$ @hardmath posted in thread. math.meta.stackexchange.com/a/32798 though not sure if i should just edit the math.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/32792 post instead of post an answer in thread. idk. $\endgroup$ – BCLC Nov 26 '20 at 8:06

    $\begingroup$ I've done a certain amount of tutoring for the math portion of GRE, so I can see that with a specific topic one could craft a Question for Math.SE. However the general topic "How can I study for the GRE math subject test?" would at best be a duplicate of that earlier Question if not overly broad. I am saying that your closed Question would need editing to become good content for Math.SE (context, focus). $\endgroup$ – hardmath Nov 26 '20 at 17:08
  • $\begingroup$ @hardmath Thanks. The earlier question is about books. I ask more generally about past papers/sample exams/past exams and other online resources $\endgroup$ – BCLC Nov 27 '20 at 2:41
