Good morning house, a quick update. I've received 3 decisions out of 4 applications:

Tennessee Tech: Admitted; admission letter was sent early this morning and funding decision will be known in the last week of March.
Michigan Tech: Denied sad. The email just dropped. Reason for denial: "There currently is no advisor available in your specified area of interest"
Clarkson Uni: Admitted (This is a private school though): Some funding was provided actually but not enough, so I may have to decline.

Still waiting on Mississippi State Uni.

*modified*
Hello Ndawe, Congrats on your admission. I wish you a positive funding decision. It will all end in testimonies. I applied to Michigan Tech too. Got their mail yesterday and was denied for same reason.
Still expecting decisions from Uni of Georgia and Uni of Calgary.

Hello everyone,
Please, find below the link to the magoosh Premium Videos I promised earlier. Couldn't use it as much as I would have loved to before I wrote my exam because I got it late. I hope it boosts your score as much as possible.

battoyyeb, temi4fash ...etc.



Y'all have been helpful in a lot of ways. And this is my own little way of giving back... for now.

NB: I'll pull it down in two weeks. For obvious reasons. Please, take advantage. Thank you and all the best in your prep.

Good morning everyone. I believe we all are having a beautiful morning.
Mmm.. Mm. *clears throat*

So... I wrote this much dreaded GRE yesterday. Wrote at JKK. Everything went fine. The wasted our time sha. And for some 30 mins that seemed like eternity their systems started acting up showing one error like that. I was still on Issue task. For a moment I thought that was the end of it. $200 gone. LOL.

Midway into the exam I started asking myself different questions...

Who send me work?
What am I looking for?
Wetin I find come here? I'm I supposed to be here?
How's this suppose to add up to my life?
Wetin make me com write this exam sef? LMAO. Don't mind me, one of those things. Just for the laughs.

I promised to share my experience as soon as i'm done and I won't renege on that.

I had 302. Quant 157 Verbal 145.

Not what I wanted. Had high hopes. All the same, not too bad. I should be able to do something with it.

In hindsight, truth be told, overall, GRE isn't much a big deal. Believe you can. Anybody can write. Just study as much as you can and believe.
I didn't do too well but you can do more. If I have another shot at it. I should do far better as it was my first.

Guys please study you Reading Comprehension very well. GRE RC is not MacMillan Reading Comprehension o. Didn't study Verbal as much as I studied for Quant. Thing is.. its evident in my scores. A word is enough.

Most importantly I want to say thank you to everyone on this platform. Trust me, every of your individual inputs did a lot and I would be ungrateful not mention this. DanjaNinja, SirRiddy, ProfTpe and others. Thank you. A big thank you. God bless you all.

Onto the next one.

ponpon:
I got to jkk around 8am, hoping the exam would start by 10am, since it was a standardized exam, we didn't start till like 11am.

I met one nairalander at the venue, nice guy, he recognized me and came to greet me, even during this hardship faced in nigeria.

The whole venue was very boring na him I spot one unilag babe, we got chatty, all gre fly comot for my head.

Did the data capture, they collected everything we had on and gave us pencil.

Started with the first section, it was blessed, as prescribed on the 1st page, I used Kaplan for my issue, it was smooth, It was a topic about studying the a society and the city, and just showing that a city is Germane to study of a society or not, I didn't practice with ets pool of topics because I wanted the exam to be like a exam were I would be able to think creatively, and not try and remember a topic I have practiced earlier.

The argument aspect was better, but I couldn't conclude well, Manhattan book helps you in seeing 1001 flaws, too much points too little time, I articulated them well, but my conclusion didn't pull through about 5 lengthy paragraphs.

2nd section was Verbal, I knew my strong point in verbal was Reading comprehension, the first set of text completion were abstruse, I couldn't find the pattern easily, I answered some correctly(maybe), I moved to my the RC, 1st Rc was short , blasted it, under 2 mins, next was the usual 4 questions very long RC, I practiced with coadcoax, so long RCs were a blessing, unlike the short ones filled with so much logic, long RC I read it calmly, I identified the main idea, the tone, and other senrenre, I wrote the RC down like a tweet, so the whole thing was fixated to my mind, Sentence equivalence on the Real gre is not the type you see in those books oooh, they are not the popular synonyms, they make sense individually. If you look too much at the options, another meaning enters your head.


3rd was the Quant, In my mind I said this is the time to shine, the questions you see on the 1st part of the gre are the ones gruber made is 25 strategies about, there is no need for too much calculations from the 1st to like 5th question, just your the test of knowing that a variable can carry any sign unless stated and Co, i wondered why ets always reiterated that to you should know questions you miss during practice, they have a format and these questions would hunt you, I fumbled in all the 3 data set, I didn't practice data set in the last 4 days of the exam, I thought it was moimoi as usual, but the charts I saw!... I missed the usual compound interest questions which I always miss, you won't see this interest and Co clearly stated I 5lb Manhattan and the rest,I also missed the independent probability question which I always miss, I missed like 5 or so In this section.

4th section verbal, it was easier than the 1st,it was clear I either performed woefully in the 1st part or It was the experimental section, it was straight forward, the text completion were the normal ets style, clue, pointer and gre vocab, RC was harder for me now, they were short, they were more and would require more time. Only one on RC scaled through

The 5th was quant, the first question was like a RC it was long, from practice tests, I noticed the 1sr questions are tough, the question after quantitative comparism tough and after data set too tough, they are time Consumers, but I made a mistake which I always knew was a mistake, I wanted to ensure I performed well In this part because I Don mess up for the 1st quantitative, I was solving to the letter, lo and behold I met one of my favorite missed questions, instead of skipping, I ran ri mo , chop valuable 3 minutes, moved on to the data set, the one was even more complex 8 mins, 7 more question to go, I didn't know one there my eye just dey see black, next question the sum of a recursive set that is in every ets material, I missed it and he choop time, I was able to run through the last 3 questions about to click answer for the last time dissappear, I said to myself, this is the end. When I clicked the next section and it was verbal, none of my quant was experimental they were the real shit!!!!

Last section, I clicked continue continue continue, I didn't even look, I said to myself, I Don fail gre, I looked at the guy at my side that one didn't have clue, I garnered hope, I just did the last section, one kind one kind, even RC, I skimmed for the pointers and answer questions using the bad options methods,

I finished my Gre and I told myself, omo u Don cast, 65,600 Don burn, I didn't want to report scores...

I reported scores blah blah blah...

Quant - 156
Verbal - 154

310...

156 was my minimum score in Kaplan online test, I had 2 156,1 158,1 162...in verbal I had 147s highest was 150...

Princeton I had 153 in my 1st quant, 162 in my 2nd, 150 and 153 were my verbal scores

Manhattan test 159 quant, 154 verbal.

Power prep 2 149, 158 were my quant scores yeah I did the power prep test 1 twice, verbal 150,152... I didn't do power prep 2 2nd test, I read it like 3 days to the exam..

My little advice, the 1st page of this trend can give you a good gre score but find what works for you.

Verbal, : verbal grail, coadcoax and 1014 Princeton, magoosh flashcards and that new meme software that dude recommended days ago is very good, but it was late

Quant : 5lb Manhattan, official guide, ets quant set, kaplan online quiz and gruber you are good ...

Need to buy a single text book buy the official guide and get a good Internet connection, the Internet is the best resource...

To access the Kaplan online portal for 2016, the answer is text


More gist dey I just gats summarize...


Danjaninja special thanks sir... You are a blessing and bless up to everyone who helped me and the Facebook group was the place I got confidence after the 149,150 score in power prep 1 test...
The difference from the 149 and my 156 score now was the material I used to study.....


Ponpon na so you just elope yesterday. I com dey find you everywhere. Congrats man. This is just the beginning of greater things to come.

Hi. I'm writing on Wednesday too. @JKK. I won't lie to you, I've got cold feet. All the same hoping for the best. So much materials and very little time. Didn't have a choice than to focus on few of the materials. Used Manhattan, 1014 Princeton Review, Magoosh & the Magoosh videos I got miraculously some few days back. I really hope this is enough as I cannot coman kee myself. One thing I will like to co-ask DanjaNinja, Sir Riddy and the rest who's been doing a great job here is how you can boost your confidence these final days?

From page 1 to page 80, every post by DanjaNinja was a hit back to back to back. My exam is on Wednesday.... What are things to do and not to do now...

With practice tests, I noticed I often miss questions that are quite very easy, those with '' could'', '' if'', ''must'', or mixing up a plus and minus sign, dividing 16 by 2 to give me 7 the whole gist that GRE is super tough makes one even misread the questions... My practice tests scores have been in a range sort of, make baba God just top my score..

I have done all of Kaplan online, I did 3 Princeton, free Manhattan test and the power prep, the hype of the power prep made me fumble in it, I can say it's the easiest of all the tests, I over expected and since they say it's a reflection of your final score, the fear not to under perform sets in and I mixed up a lot of plus and minus, and the rest...

Danjaninja, sir riddy and the rest of the senior men on here, please help me through this last days ooooh, what and what do you advice a brother man do few days before the exam, I am even down with malaria sef... Naija life!

What amount of funding or assistantship were u offered Sir cool

People are actually taking the test. Seats are getting filled up almost everyday on the GRE portal for Nigeria. I've been checking religiously for the past two weeks now. I want to write in May. But... Seats are filled up even for May. I hope they open it up again.

@DanjaNinja Thanks a bunch. I got the group invite. Finally smiley

Thanks yorex2011. Just got the app from Google play and i'm really excited. My vocab should improve. 50 words isn't bad. I will try to see how far I can get with that. Again, thank you.
yorex2011:


Try magoosh vocabulary flashcards app.. Learnt and mastered 50 words today... Plan to keep the pace for the next 40 days... That should hopefully be at least 2000 new words...
Might not work for everyone tho...
But no harm in trying.. Works best if you have very good memory and recall....

Hello everyone. Ermm.., I've been a ghost follower of this thread, well, passively but still noob. I feel its time I said something . I really commend the efforts of DanjaNinja who created the thread and those who has contributed in one way or the other. Thanks. In every way I can, I would love to give back to the thread too.
I will be taking the GRE mid this year. Preparing for the exam has been a bit daunting. Sometimes you've got so many materials and you just don't know where and how to start. Quant is going good. Verbal has been a rough one. I think I need help on that. What technique(s) can be used in learning those words.
Thanks.
