Here are some interesting websites that I came across, I hope some one else out there finds them useful or humorous.

Guide from brown University ... b/gre.html

Some admission tips form University of Florida

This is an interesting rant about ETS. I thing the cases that are spoken on in the rant are a bit extreme, however it is good to be aware or these situations and hopefully avoid them.

An interesting tidbit that I remember reading is that the verbal score on the general GRE is the best indicator of success in grad school. I will try and post the title of the book later if I can find it.

Has anyone else heard this as well?

In any case it has encouraged me to study vocabulary more intensely.
A useful vocabulary building book.

Useful general GRE prep and vocabulary builder

Thanks for the links Davorak. I added the link to the guide written by the PhD candidate from Brown University to the other resources and opinions page.

Thanks for finding the link and sharing it. I wonder how many other excellent resources are out there that we don't know about yet?

GRE Verbal section is not important.
