  1. get your figures right dude ! .. I would have jumped from a cliff if I had got
  2. well, the higher the GRE score, the better. There is no 'ideal' score, so to say but anything above 1450 would kinda be in the zone where you wont be rejected on the basis of the GRE score.... not too sure about the work ex... a lot depends on the work you have done (be it during undergrad or while working in a company).
  3. Well, it is a good start but it just gives an overview of graph theory. Although, it covers a good portion of graph theory, you might need to read a little more on graphs from elsewhere .... just keep in mind that the test is objective (MCQ) Vipul.
  4. dude, u might wanna have a look at this as well : http://www.http://www.testmagic.com.com/forums/showthread.php?p=57036 Vipul.

  8. Hey nishi, you may try Indiatimes education section. They got a lot of rankings and I guess they had one for Environmental as well .. so check it out ! and you're an Environmental Manager .. cool, so what does that actually involve ? Vipul.
  9. Hello vlsi, You can always write to the school and ask them if sending scores late is ok with them. Most of the schools do accept GRE scores after the deadline, so it shouldn't be a problem. Better to ask the school. Well, if you got a good score, it doesn't harm to send your scores. Again, much of this is university dependent. About the time frame, it is a very subjective question. It depends totally on you. If you're a CS major, you'll require less time. You may prepare in 2 weeks, or you may take months. So,.. thats it. hth, Vipul.

  11. Hey minnie, attending grad school at a top univ (ranked below 20) in CS !! .. doesn't get better than this ... and tougher as well, if I may add. about your acads spoiling the show, I dont really know how good is 66% in your univ., so can't really comment on that. and as I said before, a good score on the CS-GRE will surely help you. But do keep in mind that the application process is not only about the GRE scores. and as far as leaving a job is concerned, I myself declined an offer from the Big Brother :) hth, Vipul.
  12. Yeah srjshk, I sure am joining Columbia this Fall. Vipul.
  13. Hello minnie, I managed a 780 (I guess) on the CS GRE About your profile, for %age, which univ did u graduate from ? ... your GRE is ok, I'd say .. although it will always help if you better it... your work ex should help you (wat company btw ?) ... do well in the CS GRE and you'll be all set ... what ranked univs are u aiming for ? Don't hesitate to ask more questions ... hope that helps, Vipul.
  14. Dude, first N(2M) pages cause N page faults. Again, the second and third requests for 'N' pages cause N faults (coz no page is resident when required). Thus total faults = N + N + N = 3N. u sure the ans is N + 3 ? ... the answer should be e) 3N page faults Vipul.
  15. Hey guyz, I answered the CS GRE test last Nov. I'd be glad to answer any queries you guyz may have about the test or otherwise. Cheerio ! Vipul.

  18. Hi, first of all ... congrats Erin ... the new look of the forum is cool :) .. good job !! jagrati and kirti, I guess you missed a couple of books : Introduction to Algorithms - Cormen, Rivest Leiserson .. popularly known as CLR, its "THE BOOK" for algos n maths etc .... a must have then, u dont need to do all that C and C++ in detail ... just basic programming constructs are required .. if you know a bit of C or pascal, you should be pretty much set for digital electronics and architecture, there are a couple of books by Morris Mano (basic and advanced), they are good ... u can give em a try in case ur wondering how i have all this 'gyan', I gave the test myself last november :) hth, Vipul.
