To Whom it may concern,
My name is Michael Bernado and I am currently a student at the College of the Holy Cross. I am a junior and am going to be taking the GRE's soon. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for the language part of the exam that they could give me. Thank you very much.

Get past exams and study guides, work through the problems. That will give you an idea of the sort of questions typically asked, but there is little you can do in a short period of time to improve your verbal skills.

Don't tell him that! I think I know him! Michael, you can take a course to prep for the GRE's, just like we had before the SAT's. That's what I plan to do.

What are GREs?

"Graduate Record Exam(ination)(s)", taken by US college students and college graduates who intend to attend graudate school.

Similar to the SAT, there is a math score and a verbal score, each in the
200 to 800 range. When I took the GREs, you could sit for an optional partin the field of your choice.
Still, the GREs are general exams for many graduate programs. There are special exams for certain graduate programs, such as at law school (LSATs), med school (MCATs), and business school (GMATs), .

Not all grad schools require GRE scores from an aplicant, but a good score never hurts.

What hurt me was the headache after a day of taking them. More grueling exams I've never experienced.

When did you take them? I took them on Dec. 12, 1981.

I didn't think the GRE was so bad, and I was able to put out of my mind the fact that I somewhat crashed my then-new (and first-owned) car on the campus of the host school, on the way to the test.

(A certain 90-degree left turn was actually a hairpin turn, and icy. Hit the curb (UK: kerb) and got a "severe alignment problem", which would takes weeks to repair. Security patrol happened by and got me to the test just in time.)
GRE math/verbal was in the morning. The optional subject test ("Achievements"?), computer science, in my case, was in the afternoon.

I deliberately took the GRE while fresh from the college experience, even though I had no immediate plans for grad school. It was a good move. I "used" them (by applying for grad school) just before the unofficial 5-year expiration date on the scores. T'was the GRE scores (esp. the math 800), and not my college grades, that got me into grad school.

1970 or thereabouts.

I raced to the LSAT, running through red lights, because I overslept. I should have stayed in bed. I didn't wind up going to law school, which was probably just as well.

I was awarded a fellowship almost solely on my grades. I didn't do badly on the GREs, but I didn't do as well on them as on the college boards.

Why not, Charles? So far, I've been under the impression that the GRE's aren't that much more difficult than the SAT's. Generally, shouldn't a person's GRE score be higher than their SAT score? I hope mine is.
