    GRE

    Discussion started by CinchedWaist - Aug 4, 2005

    I'm scheduled for August 26th and am very nervous.
    I was going to take a Kaplan course but they are about $1,000 and I think that is just crazy.
    So I bought a book to study techniques from instead.

    Have any of you guys taken this test?
    How did you do? (Good, bad, average)
    Have any tips you would like to share?
    I've read only half a million people take this test worldwide a year so I'm not expecting too many responses.

    i didn't really study anything except vocab
    (but i took calculus II in college so math didn't faze me)
    english is not easy

    it is weird as you are taking the test and you know you are getting shit right because the questions are getting harder
    then you know you got one wrong, (or two)
    because then they get really easy and its fucking freaky

    my advice would be to not let yourself get psyched out by that.

    i did just fine with very little preparation
    (english 620,
    math 600,
    and analytical 660)

    analytical was insane, and insanely hard
    they had you figure shit like "george and john work together on tuesday, john doesn't work on wednesday, jill won't work with george, jenn won't work on thursday or with john on monday, george works with jenn on friday....now make a weekly schedule that fits them all)
    ??!!!!

    but they took this shit off the GRE, so as far as i can tell, you got off easy haha
    (i think they took it off, am i wrong?
    if it is still on the test, buy a kaplan or princeton review BOOK and practice)

    you'll do fine woman, just beef up on that vocab
    (a good way is to do the new york times crossword every day with a dictionary)

    ..also, yeah, get a GRE PREP BOOK and take a couple practice tests
    it's a pain, but you should

    the GRE is the

    Graduate Record Examination

    and is basically the SAT for 4 year college graduates
    there are three sections, math, verbal, and essay (analytical writing)

    My older brother is curently getting ready for the test, I'm not sure if he's has
    enrolled for the test yet but I know he bought the book as well and has been
    going at it for about 2 months now. He'll be going to get in a masters program
    at University of Chicago.

    Study hard and don't slack, it'll pay off.

    Thanks for explaining Symbols, I always liked these kind of standardized tests, but I guess you dont take that one in art school.
