SBR: GRE

Has anyone taken the GRE?  I'm getting ready to take it probably in early May, and I feel so lost, lol.  I am starting with the free study guides on the website.  Anything that helped you?

Re: SBR: GRE

  • I checked out a GRE prep book from the library.  It was a big help.  I took a practice test before I started the book to see how I did cold turkey, then I took another test (tests are in the back of the book) to see if I improved (I did).

  • I wish I could skip the GRE!  That's what I get for being a computing bachelor looking to get a computing masters, lol.  I have to have an application, transcripts, GRE, and THREE letters of recommendation.

  • I spent some time with a study book in one of the comfy chairs at B&N.  I think I ended up buying it later so I could do the practice tests.  I was pretty nervous, but the actual test ended up being a lot easier than I expected.  I appl
  • I also checked out a GRE book from the library and did practice tests.  Being familiar with the test made me feel more confident.  My math score not mattering made me feel really confident (I was going for a degree in English).
  • I haven't taken it yet (I am trying to decide what I want to actually get my Masters in) but I did buy the book. I bought the book for SATs/ACTs and all of my FL teaching certification exams. It seemed like the best option because then you can highlight,
  • I like taking standardized tests.  I'm weird like that.  I even took the ASVAB in HS for fun since it was free and got me out of classes for it.
