    Has anyone taken the Math GRE Subject Test? If so, was it difficult?

    Anybody submit a math subject test score to Ph.D.'s?

    According to one of, if not the top student here in math, it was hard, and I imagine this person wouldn't advise it to anyone who isn't a math major of some sort (that is, has a serious well-rounded collection of math classes, including abstract algebra). I'll note she was accepted to a top 10 program in Math for a Ph.D, so I hold her word pretty strongly.

    so chances are you suck on it, but it'll automatically get reported to the econ programs.

    won't help you, will hurt you at 99%.

    If I'm not mistaken, you don't have to report subject test scores (ie. while they can be reported with your general test scores they do not have to be). So it shouldn't hurt you unless you choose to send them.

    LOL! Do you mean, chances are you suck at it? In America we mean something else when we say suck on it.

    ON THE TEST?

    wouldn't you say "i underperformed ON the test?" or is it at?

    Nope... Most people choose to send 'em out at the same time because its cheaper, 20 bucks a score report is ridiculous and sending them separate would double it. On the other hand, I don't think you can send different subject tests separately.

    And I think either "on" or "at" would be acceptable in the current context. Although "on" has more adult undertones.

    then in my case, sucking ON the test would probably give me better results than sucking AT the test if i tried to fill it out
