There are loads of people taking the test around this period but they are all on low key. They should keep the thread alive.

Hello bro, I would advise to go through this thread from page 1 as your first step towards the USA dream.
The best time to write the GRE would be when you know that you've prepped well and the session that you're also targeting.
Are you targeting spring 2018 (January) or Fall 2018 (August/ September)?
As regards tutorials, I don't know about your basic grasp with Basic Maths and intermediate/high level level vocabs but I could say that you don't really need a class room tutorials, there are various smart ways to do that and magoosh videos is a great alternative.

hello gurus in the house, I am planning on writing GRE in Oct and I need some material. I have gotten barron, gruber and the official ETS material. I don't knw if anyone can assist with 5lb Manhattan series and Magoosh materials.
Secondly I have a Bsc (3.86/5) In geology and Msc in petroleum Geosciences (4.84/5). I Have a published paper in a well recognised journal (NAPE). I intend going for PHD but if not possible I can go for another MSc spring or fall 2018. What are my chances of getting funding and I need advice of safe schools that offer geology.

Honestly, there is no hard and fast rule for categorizing safe or ambitious school these days. It all depends on your field, for example FIT may be a safe school for others but for I/O psychology its top 10. Look through each departments publication record online, see association rankings, get in contact with current students and alumni, then you'll be able to choose which is safe or ambitious for your profile.
Same thing goes for your publication, check the journal's impact factor online, did you pay to publish? Is the journal indexed on a reputable repository? Publication is encouraged when its really in a reputable journal (i am not a specialist in your field).
Your chances of funding for a PhD study are better than for MS, however, there are no guarantees. Apply to as many programs as you can afford.
Finally, for prep materials, go back through each page of the thread you'll find a multitude of them.

Danoluwa:Google PhD in Petroleum Geology in US and start ur search from there. Majority of the schools I know are top schools. University of Michigan, Texas A M University College Station, Pennsylvania State University, I think you should look at Louisiana State University!

Hey guys. Which do you advise one writes first? TOEFL or GRE? How similar is TOEFL prep to GRE verbal prep?
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by athorello(m): 7:33am On Jul 10, 2017|
Good one, please can you share details on the GRE registration by Mafit? I have since two different sites claiming GRE by Mafit with different layouts but same contact info. I think one is testportals. I will appreciate your quick reply. Time to start believing our citizens.
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by iCool(m): 8:22am On Jul 10, 2017|
You can write anyone first, what counts is being well prepared for it.
GRE Reading Comprehension and Sentence Completion requires 'GRE vocabulary' and needs more work, Toefl Reading and Listening are normal everyday use of English.
For me, Writing section for both tests was prepared for by learning grammar and sentence structure.
Download the GRE PowerPrep and Ets Toefl materials and see questions Very similar to the actual test.
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by iCool(m): 8:33am On Jul 10, 2017|
This is the link http://www.gregmattoeflnigeria.com
I used them, though I can see they did a redesign and it is stated on the site. I paid from port harcourt, if you can't risk it please visit their Lagos office.
They also said they are affiliated to testportal.
The company is genuine, over 6months and no issues with my registration. I don't work for them, the cheap price just too sweet for person not to grab am.

Hello house, this thread is very informative. Keep up with the good work. I'm in a state of dilemma and I need some educational advice. I've written gre and toefl with scores of Q155 V 153 and 96/120 respectively. However, I was denied admission into LSU and Texas A&M for fall 2017 admission. I felt the reason is because my gre score is low and have decided to write another but I need advice on safe schools to apply to as I don't want to be disappointed again. I have a Cgpa of 4.13/5.00 in BSc Chemical engineering and would like to go for master's in chemical engineering too. Thanks as I await a speedy response.

tosinooo:if you have spare $30, you can pay for a premium account on usnews....... but if you dont mind, you can consider smaller less popular schools, like
1)University Of Alaska, Fairbanks (admit rate is 45%+)
over 70%admit rate as follows
2)Oklahoma State University
3)University of Alabama Huntsville
4)university of rhode island
5)university of new mexico
6) south dakota school of mines and technology
NB: Having high acceptance rate doesn't mean they will definitely accept you, but at least the competition isn't stiff

I need assistance on all necessary materials/advice anyone can render here. I wish to apply for a MSc programme and I've been avoiding any exam(s) till I found out the advantages as seen in the forum. I have read through the pages but I believe someone with recent information will be willing to. I beg help a brother.
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by EZEIGBO1OFIMO: 6:04pm On Jul 10, 2017|
casid:For TOEFL, all you need are the speaking noteful videos, the ets toefl guide is enough to ace the exam for other sections. Just download the Toefl ETS Guide from there website and the simulation test.

There is this saying that says ''If we don't fight we have failed, but if we fight we can either fail or succeed''. So forget the tuition part for now and put in some work. First, you need to decide on the course you want to study, To save you some stress start from this website http://graddecision.org/ to know the application process, So step 1) Decide on the course you want to study 2) Search for schools using a)www.msinus.com (open this website with a laptop, you should see a list of school and ranking for some of the most common courses, you can start from there b)www.gradschools.com c)www.google.com (you can just type 'msc in bla bla in the us in google' d) www.usnews.com e) www.4icu.org . 3) check up the website of the schools you find, to see the requirements. most schools will require GRE and some will require both gre and toefl . 4) Register for standardize exam and take it. You can register for gre as soon as you are ready and prepared to take the exam. Its done online at www.ets.org. You can also get all the information you need about the exam on the website. You will get adequate materials to prepare for the exam in this dropbox I createdhttps://www.dropbox.com/sh/t9ot6d07hp1lkm7/AADL_dTihjEvNBRCBsmAcoXja?dl=0
TOEFL is an English test required by some US universities. though, some schools waive due to the fact that Nigeria is an Anglophone country.
For toefl, all you need are the speaking noteful videos in the link below, the ets toefl guide is enough to ace the exam for other sections. Just download the toefl ETS Guide from there website and the simulation test.
As for the Tuition, if you have good results (GRE, GPA, Toefl), SOP and LOR; US schools do offer assistanship to graduate students. This can either be Research Assistant, Teaching Assistant or Administrative Assistant. Depending on the school, if you get an assistantship, your Tuition will be waived and you will also be paid a monthly stipend that can take care of your living expenses. One advice, once you shortlist schools, send emails to the grad cord of the schools and ask specific questions relating to that course and funding opportunities, be very explicit.
Lastly, there are basically 2 admission session in the US, Spring (Jan) and Fall (August). Schools admit more students in Fall, so Its advisable you plan towards Fall 2018. If you plan to resume in fall 2018, make sure you submit all your application documents before ending of Dec 2017. If you don't give it a trial, you will never know.My philosophy in life is to always do my part, with that I don't get to regret later. Above all, if you believe in God,pray to him..if not, good for you.
