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. Not all practice tests will be computer-based. I guess the first lesson in this is to always bring a pencil. I didn’t have any […]

GRE words that always confuse me…

Quick post today. At the internship (as an editorial intern), I came across two commonly misused words that (tada!) are also Barron’s vocab! I now give you the Chicago Manual of Style: Abjure; adjure. To abjure is to deny or renounce under oath {the defendant abjured the charge of murder} or to declare one’s permanent […]

Words that always elude me…

Sometimes the definitions of words just seem to elude me. I learn and re-learn them, but sometimes I need to get a few questions wrong in order for the words to stick. I took this sample question test from ETS on antonyms and got a modest score, merely because the words (all of which seem […]

Taking the GRE Twice?

I had this great idea about naming this post “In a Pickle,” and then starting it off with a picture of me free-floating in a jar of green-tinted juice. Hah–I’m so funny! So great! This is going to be an awesome post. Well as you can see, that didn’t happen. It didn’t happen because I’m […]

Little Victory

I’m chugging along on the math review section for Barron’s–and I’m pretty excited! Current Practice Results Section L, Circles: 17/20 Section M,  Solid Geometry: 14/15 Since a lot of my scores on the math review sections have been much worse than this, I think it’s safe to say that I’m getting better. For one thing, […]

First Day of Class/English Review

“A good reader, a major reader, an active and creative reader is a rereader.” -Nabokov, On Good Readers and Good Writers Today marks the beginning of the semester! (Does anyone know why Berkeley starts its semester on a Thursday?) That’s right–it’s back to skool for me. Back to learning. Back to reading and writing. Back […]

Cool Vocab Sites to Study for the GRE

Today’s study session was replaced with an hour of mildly-pleasing computer games! It’s funny whenever people ask me how I spend my entertainment time–I don’t really like to go to the movies or watch tv, or play WoW like some people I know. In fact in terms of games I have a specific memory of […]

“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 […]

New GRE in August 2011

Educational Testing Service recently revealed plans to extensively revise the GRE for August 2011. We’ve heard this before. In 2006 they promised new formats and unique question-types for a fall 2007 linear version (same exam for everyone). Didn’t happen. When it became clear ETS couldn’t secure each and every testing site, they defaulted to the […]

The Little Things

This blog post was originally going to be about my terrible morning: about waking up at 6 o’clock with an aching tummy, unsettling nausea, and that sinking feeling… you know, that feeling that something (somebody, some part of you) is amiss. And all you can do is groan. I had to skip out on interning […]
