GRE Madness!


Ten hours ago I found out that I need to do the GRE some time in the next two weeks, not some time in the next six to eight weeks that I had been expecting.

Being in Australia right now, this is kinda tricky!!

So now I am off to Melbourne late next week to try my luck at GREs!!

If anyone knows any GRE cramming techniques, please let me know!!!

  1. vocab, vocab, vocab!

  2. thanks Andy, will do!!
    but won’t math count too??

  3. The GRE site did have (in fall 08) online tests/downloadable software. The practice tests were timed, even, which I needed. I was a wreck (Matthew will attest). Grab a Kaplan or Princeton Review book or something at a bookstore, just to get a sense of the question types, phrasing, format, and general annoyingness of the test.

    As to vocab vs. math and what counts, I think it matters what you’re planning to study. My math score was 480–just awful. But my verbal score was 790–crazy high. I’m in a political science program doing qualitative work, so I don’t *need* to be a quantoid. My guess is, Ben, that you’re probably someone who’ll need to know more about his maths than his morphemes. Check out some test-prep books/websites, see how you handle the samples, and go from there.


    • Hi Michel!
      I have followed your advice and spent the day buried in the math section of one of our GRE books (we got the books, just I don’t seem to gotz the time!!), and now my head hurts!!
      I think I need a quantoid implant!!
      Thanks for the advice about the practice tests also, I shall hit them next, once I reassemble what I thought was my brain!!
