Is 10 days enough?

Postby fabioyang » Tue Oct 28, 2008 1:52 pm

Hello guys, I have only 10 days left before the test on Nov.8. But I still have many questions in the tests I do every day. :( Can you give me some advice so I can make some improvement in these 10 days?
Thanks!

10 days is a pretty short time to prepare, and since you haven't given many specifics about what you've already studied, I apologize if what I say is useless. From my own experience, I found that scores can be brought up rather rapidly. When I took the test last year, I studied every Saturday and Sunday for one month (eight days if you add them all up); from these weekend study sessions, my score increase by about 200 points from a 500-something to a 780 (so not objectively great, but a big improvement from where I was). I didn't really do anything particularly special except take a practice test, review my errors, and then write down the equations I wish I had known. I'm guessing you've already taken all of the practice tests, but if not, then this is what I'd recommend.

Hi, I am a prospective Astronony PhD student at Rice University in Houston, TX, US. I do not have prior background in Physics except that I graduated as a Marine Engineer in 2002 from an Indian university. Following that I studied MBA in US and worked on wallstreet for 2 years. I am new to Physics, and would really appreciate if someone could advice me on what Junior/Sophomore level pre-requisites do I need to take to ace my Physics GRE. I am good analytically. Gaurav
