I plan to take the physics GRE in November or December of 2005 during which I will also be wrapping up my last semester as an undergraduate. I wanted some advice on whether or not I should take a semester off to study for the test, or, should I go ahead and take it during my last semester in school.
I will be taking the following classes: Stat and Thermal, Quantum, Astrophysics in the semester mentioned above.
2 of the 3 will be on the test and I a pretty sure that I will have time during the Fall semester to review the fundamentals of all my courses. Also I work for a college tutoring Calculus based Physics and get quite a review daily (I am the only physics tutor there).
If I take a semester off, I will not be able to start a grad program until spring 2007. If I take it in November I can start a grad program Fall of 2006.
