PhysicsGRE.com Philosophy on the Physics GRE
The GRE physics subject exam tests specific, yet broad, subject matter under timed conditions. Naturally, one would expect that comprehensive preparation and practice would significantly improve ones score on the exam. This is the premise on which PhysicsGRE.com is based.
In all likelihood, the Physics GRE will be the single most important physics test you will take during your undergraduate years. The physics GRE is a major factor used by graduate schools to determine admissions and financial aid packages. Perhaps I am overstating the importance of the Physics GRE, but I feel that underestimating its importance would be a far greater disservice.
PhysicsGRE.com's objective is to help students properly prepare for the Physics GRE Subject Test. We strive to accomplish this in a number of ways. First we want to create concise, highly relevant content specific to Physics GRE preparation. Second, we provide links and references to other valuable Physics GRE resources and information. Third, we seek feedback and suggestions from all members of our physics community. Input from students, teachers, and others with a passion for physics can help this site to become an increasingly more valuable tool for students preparing to take the physics GRE. Your input can also help to serve our secondary, yet more important purpose of helping students to better understand the fundamentals of physics.
Even though PhysicsGRE.com strives to be an excellent resource, it is not intended to be a substitute for additional advice one can receive from professors, teaching assistants, peers, special classes, and the Internet. It is strongly recommended that you utilize these additional resources available to you and hopefully you will find it fulfilling to share useful advice with other students by utilizing the Physics GRE forums
