About Me


My Target Scores

  1. Hello, everyone! My name is Topher, and I am a Psychology student currently studying for the GRE. I first discovered this forum because I was looking for people to look at my practice essays and give me feedback, although I am also very happy to help anyone else out with any verbal or quantitative reasoning questions with which help is needed. I look forward to studying with all of you! Best, —Topher
  2. Hi, I just took a GRE exam today, and received a score of 170/163 (quant/verbal). I'm expecting writing score of 4.0-4.5. I was wondering if raising the verbal score would be of any benefit. (btw I'm from an Asian country, so I thought maybe high verbal scores could show my linguistic ability)
  3. Hello, would be really appreciative if persons having been through the process would be able to offer suggestions for realistic schools I could apply to with my background. GMAT: 750 - verbal heavy, very verbal heavy EDUCATION: Master in Acct. GPA: 3.8 (very large midwest state university) WORK EXP: 4 or so years, CPA, 'Big Four' and other big companies MATH: Just stats and some finance math classes. RESEARCH INTEREST: pretty set on financial accounting and audit. I have questions I want to explore and have read quite a bit of acct research. Given my GMAT score balance I was thinking experimental research, although archival seems interesting and I have no doubt i could do the math when i get in (im ready to work!!!) i just don't know how they (admission committees) view an unbalanced Q - V split - reading the forums here seems like it's possibly an issue. Both methodologies seem interesting to me. I don't plan on retaking the GMAT. But, yeah, opinion on my prospects would be much appreciated.
  4. Hey all, I've been really excited about my GRE scores since seeing the 'unofficial' scores when I finished but was disappointed with my AWA that I just received tonight. Verbal: 168 Quant: 167 AWA: 4 To give a bit of context this is overall improvement from when I took it last year: Verbal: 161 Quant: 163 AWA: 4.5 I plan to apply broadly to the top 30 programs since I'm coming out of an LAC with the knowledge that I may have to take an RA position if I have no luck in my first run with applications. Should I think about retaking because of the AWA? Thanks!
  5. Hi guys! Me and my friend have low verbal score. We know that verbal is not that important, yet our %tile is even lower than 30 & 40, that is why we wondered what are your experiences on that issue? Do you know anyone who was admitted to a good school ? If you do, how other qualifications of that person was like? Need to hear good things. Thank you for any comments.
  6. Hello guys, I'm shall be looking for computer science schools in US. Though I understand that gre score is not the only requirement for admission, but I do have a confusion anyway. 1. Say some school says that they want 75 percentile in quant, mine is only 71. Does that mean that my application would be rejected just for that basis? 2. If some school seeks 80 th percentile in quant, should I be applying to those too? Thanks in advance.
  7. Hello Friends, I think the thread title must have made the my intentions very clear. I want your guidance on how to tame this Vocab beast in one month. I am scoring well in my Quants section (160/165+). The marks I loose in quants is usually a result of silly mistakes which I am trying to reduce by practicing more. However I am getting just 145-149 in my Verbals. I am doing well in RCs, but the SC and SEs are driving me nuts. Thanks to my poor vocab. I have literally mugged up the Barrons/Kaplans list (frequently occurring words) and many more, but the they dont seem to be of much help. Most of the times, I encounter new words in the test. Please help me out. I would be grateful to you for the help. As for the quants, I will help you with that!
  8. This is the final installment of the series "How good does your vocabulary need to be?" in order to score within certain ranges on the GRE verbal section. Even though the new GRE test has changed, it is certainly easier to get high scores when you have a good vocabulary. I will appreciate it if you let me know what you think of these videos. http://youtu.be/FLcYHCZ89Yo Regards, Payman
  9. Hello, everyone. I put this video together for those of you shooting for GRE verbal scores between the 80th and 95th percentile. Bear in mind that the words in this video were pulled from a professional source and show vocabulary levels for people living in America. Using excellent tactics you can compensate for a weaker vocabulary, but you really need to be skilled to do so. Having vocabulary in the range recommended range will increase the odds that you can comfortably hit the target score range. Regards, Payman http://youtu.be/Z7_WBFqKDHw
  10. Hi, I have around 8 months to prepare for GRE . So i got myself the Manhattan GRE Prep . In many of the threads , it is advised not to use the Manhattan prep for sentence completion in particular and verbal in general. Can somebody suggest what alternative resource should i use for verbal section .Please take into consideration that the alternative resource should be exhaustive . Thanks.
  11. Hi there, I am going to take GRE this Sep, and really think its cool to get some buddies to build vocabulary together and practicing some verbal reasoning questions. The daily/or every 2-day conversation include: - Word challenge: we will ask each other words and the opponent need to explain the meaning of words in plain English. - Verbal reasoning test: we take the sample test together, and after 30 min, we will compare the answers with each other and explain why we came up with that results. We then will look at the correct answers, read them and discuss if we cannot understand clearly the solutions. Short introduction about me: 1. Graduate in UK, target to be enrolled in PhD in Finance in 2013. 2. Free time: I am available most of the time until Sep. 3. For chat: find me on skype/msn: thanhlex84
  12. Hi! Brent It says - Subordinate Clauses don't have Subject or Verb and don't stand on its own as a meaningful sentence. Ex - When the auditors left. Help me in understanding this. In above example, aren't 'auditors' the subject. Isn't 'left' a verb form. Yes, the sentence isn't making any sense though. Is this an example of a Subordinate Clause? What if we drop 'when' and rewrite it as 'The auditors left'
  13. Hi all, Here's a Sentence Equivalence question for the new GRE takers: Notwithstanding the odds against him, he _________ the general principle very forcefully. A. Enunciated B. Articulated C. Nullified D. Refined E. Weakened I thought the answer was: But the OA is: Any thoughts on this? Regards, mantrapad

  17. Consider dis - The houses on Canal Street, many of which had been damaged in the storm, looked abandoned. Is the sentence separated by commas (,many of......storm,) a subordinate clause here? Would it be called an Appositive since it is describing the houses on canal street. How different is a subgroup modifier from Appositive? Thanks for help

  20. Hi! I request the forum members to share specific guidelines/rules/tricks to solve CR questions. At times, I find CR section easy and extremely tough at other times (esp. when my mind wanders off). After going through few of the available resources for tackling CR, all I understand at the end of the day is that I need to just read the argument carefully, find premises & conclusion and then apply my common sense. I have not come across any specific trick that can help me crack CR ques with some logic and in less time. I have listed down some basic but helpful tips on CR which I have complied from the resources I refer to (basically, short notes dat we prepare). I request all members to contribute. It is giving me nightmares at times. In analysisng an argument, look for conclusion Premise +Assumption = Conclusion Use T-diagram Make use of BOUNDRY words – words that restrict the scope of argument. These words can twist answer choices slightly. E.g % vs. Number Look for extreme words in the answer choice. GMAT never uses many extreme words in the argument, and hence answer choices cld be twisted accordingly. Always eliminate the wrong answer choices by cutting it on the scratch paper. Don’t do it in the head Always paraphrase the question in your mind and mentally prepare your answer. Paraphrasing an answer involves quickly speculating on what you expect the correct answer would be. This is imp as the answer choices will be presented in a manner so as to confuse you on which is correct or incorrect. When u have an aswer ready mentally, you can attack the answer choices with a better logic. Always read all answer choices. Never leave any choice untouched As you read, separate the answer choices as contenders or losers. Always be on lookout for modifying words. These words could be of types – Entirely, many, some etc. When author presents views of others without making commitment himself, avoid answers that take a certain position or makes flat assertion For main point ques, try to find out the conclusion. Then look for paraphrase of that conclusion in the answer choice. In main point questions, answer choices that repeat the premise mentioned in the ques is wrong.
