GRE spells GRIEF!

  1. Taking my GRE on Thursday....mathematics are such a headache...integers....pythagorean's theorem....statistics....and also verbal ( which i do well on thank goodness), and two essays....what a long day it will be.

    Anyone have any insights into this higher education gateway for the damned?

    Oh yuk..the GRE blues. I ended up getting a moving violation ticket on my way to my test, for making a right hand turn on a green light because I didn't see the TINY sign on the side that read it was illegal to do so. That just destroyed my nerves!

    Just remember that if, by chance, you don't do as well as you would have liked, to take advantage of the retake policy. A classmate of mine did, and was glad because his scores shot up the second time.
    Also, if you start running out of time in any section (i.e. 6 minutes left), it is better to guess at the rest of the section rather than to leave blank answers because you're likely to get some right.

    Good luck to you, I'm sure you'll do well. I will send good CALM thoughts your way!

    Get a good night's sleep. Eat breakfast. Breathe on a regular basis.

    I haven't taken the GREs yet, but it sure doesn't sound like much fun!

    Good luck! Bring plenty of #2 pencils!
