Has anyone here taken the GRE?

I was wondering how you studied for it and if it was worth paying for a paid program to study for it.

I took the regular GRE & the Physics GRE and did horribly, especially on the latter (almost didn’t get into grad school and had to have my research advisor fight for me).

I didn’t study much for the general and none for the physics, so my best advise is to not do that & study as much as you can! I think it’s less about the material & more about learning how to optimally take the test.

Good luck! :slight_smile:

I had the opportunity to take the GRE but opted out of grad school.

I took the GRE and did very poorly on math. My school accepted me on a provisional basis. I was severely psychotic, too.
