Practice Test Results

So… I am back from taking the practice GRE. What a complicated test experience! I arrived pretty early to the testing site but was unprepared to what they had in store.

Cool Vocab Sites to Study for the GRE

“I hear ya, amen to that.”

Hello! Sorry for the lack of updates recently. As you can tell by my calendar, I have been immersed in the world of mathematics. Yuck–from the likes of the last post, I may have been a little too frank in my distaste for math. My sincerest apologies! There must have been something in the air […]
