Worked through all of Conquering the Physics GRE, the 2001, 1996, and 2008 tests, and a huge pile of notecards. On the last practice test (2008) I got a 670. Not at all where I want to be (I was a 4.0 physics student), but we'll see how it goes. I signed up for the Sep because I wasn't sure where I would be living in Oct, but now that looks settled so I can take the Oct again if need be.
Biggest problem at this point seems to be time. Once I start working on a problem, it's hard for me to let it go and move on to the next, even if it ends up taking way too long to work out.
Got my score today--820 (74%). Can't be upset with that, given my constraints. I won't be retaking, going to push forward with my applications. I got a 170/170 on the general so I think that should shore up my "she is passably decent, look at other things" angle.
