You either want to write the GRE or you don't; there is no dabbling. If you do, get the official guides and take the powerprep tests (you can download it from the ets website).
Any other way to gauge your performance is just irrelevant.
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by Nobody: 5:28pm On Feb 04, 2016|
Power prep used to be the closest but isn't anymore. I had 166, 167 on both tests but ended up with a 161. Apart from the fact that you may lose your cool and focus in the actual test, the test has evolved from what it used to be in the yore.
Yorex2011, just get the ETS official questions, and practice as much as you can. I know you're smart, but it would be foolhardy not preparing yourself for the worst. You don't want to end up with less than what you bargained for, but still be compelled send your scores to "ivy leagues" because you didn't prepare yourself for the worst possibility. My 2 cents.

yorex2011:try the ets and powerprep, if your Quant score is okay for the requirement, then focus on verbal and Awa. Magoosh is the best matl for verbal, register if you've the money. The key to answering RC, the whole verbal sef, is understanding the author's idea. So you need to calm down and be curious of the msg the author wants to pass across while reading. Success!

I am currently in the process of applying for grad school and all your comments have been very helpful! . However, I have some questions and would be grateful if any one can assist.
1. @sirRiddy said something about funding for Masters Program. After researching all i see is Graduate assistantship (TA) not funding, the funding I see is only for PHD students. Please can someone expatiate on this? Asides from scholarships, graduate assistantship (TA) and Private loans what other means of funding is available to international students going for an MS program?
2. I am also reading for GRE but was considering going for lessons instead (Don't consider myself a fast learner and might need extra tutorial). Can someone recommend a company? or do you think the Magoosh vidoes would help regardless of the individuals level of assimilation?
3. I want to pay ahead of time for a day to take the GRE test but from what I see the test seats a full for April. Are there companies that reserve this slot that I could contact?
Thanks all! I am a beginner in all this and the whole process of applying is overwhelming! Your responses would help greatly! Thanks!

Sent you an email. Thanks!
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by ponpon(m): 11:04pm On Feb 04, 2016|
Yorex....timed practice is very key....... Guys pls after April 8....would there be new dates for the test?
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by Dreal4mula: 12:00am On Feb 05, 2016|
Please kindly share the Schools with PhD funding. As regards GRE prep, Magoosh+ Manhattan + Official guides should do the magic. First, learn the strategies used in these resource quickly using their practice questions. Next, Do up to 15 full test and always build your weak areas as you go long you will be fine

MS/PhD positions available at IUPUIThe Ecohydrology and Biogeochemistry lab of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) seeks multiple motivated students interested in pursuing a MS or PhD (Applied Earth Sciences) degree in the Department of Earth Sciences. Two federal funded projects are available to support the students' endeavors. One NSF funded project is on the effects of non-rainfall water input on plant-soil water interactions in drylands with fieldwork in Namibia. Another project investigates the buffering effect of no-till agriculture on crop yield, nutrient use efficiency, and leaching potential under drought conditions (USDA-funded). The positions are available from August 2016, and will be supported through research and teaching assistantships that provide a competitive stipend, tuition remission andhealth insurance. The student(s) will be advised by Dr. Lixin Wang (http://earthsciences.iupui.edu/~lxwang). The USDA project supported student will be co-advised by Dr. Pierre-André Jacintheand will work in close collaboration with the Remote Sensing group led by Dr. Lin Li. Applicants must hold a BS degree in earth sciences, hydrology, soil science, environmental sciences or related disciplines, and have strong oral and written communication skills.IUPUI is Indiana's premier urban public research university, currently enrolling more than 30,000 students. In 2011, IUPUIwas ranked 3rd by U.S. News and World Report in "Up-and-Coming National Universities." Indianapolis is a very livablecity with a wealth of outdoor, cultural, andsporting activities. The department of Earth Sciences has a wide variety of analytical facilities including LGR and Picarro water isotope analyzers, IRMS facility for13C,15N and34S measurements, CN analyzer, and wet chemistry laboratories equipped for soil, water and plant analysis.To apply, please send a copy of your application materials (statement of interest, resume, unofficial transcripts, GRE score, TOEFL score if applicable, and contact information of three referees) to Dr. Lixin Wang (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Graduate Assistantships in Soil Microbial Ecology & BiogeochemistryTwo PhD and one MS graduate student assistantships are available in the EcologyCenter and the Department of Biology at Utah State University, Logan, UT, beginning summer or fall 2016, as part of a USDA-AFRI project examining how soil microbial growth efficiencies (MGE) are influenced by drought in rangeland and agro-ecosystems. Soil microbial growth efficiency (aka carbon-use efficiency) is a key variable regulating greenhouse gas emissions from soil, as well as rates of carbon and nutrient sequestration and release. Biogeochemical models are extremely sensitive to variation in MGE, yet we have a poor understanding of how environmental variables influence MGE. This project will utilize stable isotope techniques to examine how variation in soil moisture regulates MGE in sagebrush steppe, irrigated pasture, and conventional and organic cropland ecosystems.The ideal applicant will have: background in soil science, microbial or plant ecology, biogeochemistry, or a related area; good chemistry and quantitative skills; excellent written and oral communication skills; and the ability to work closely with others and independently at field sites. Interested individuals should send a CV to John Stark (email@example.com), Department of Biology, Utah State University, Logan, UT.

Is there any particular online resource you use for this? Anyways, thanks a whole lot. I'll be expecting.
|Re: How To Achieve High Scores On The GRE by pennstate(m): 12:00pm On Feb 05, 2016|
No online resources other than google.
Try this on google 'Graduate Assistantships in Environmental Engineering'. You can also use RA OR TA.
