I have now officially registered for the GREs. I have 7 weeks before this bitch of an exam. It isn't really an exam that measures how smart you are, but rather if you've learned how to beat the test. It's a money grab (at $149.80 US) and piece of crap really.
So I must cram into my head words such as: uxorious, mendacity, and gravitas. Which to me isn't nearly as scary as solving a quadratic equation or trying to decipher this:
If n is an odd integer, which one of the following is an even integer?
(A) 3n + 2 (B) n/4 (C) 2n + 3 (D) n(n + 3) (E) nn
ok so I do know that in this case the answer is D, but in theory, I will only have about 10 seconds to figure it out.
Now that I've registered I'm hoping my motivation will increase. I started studying at the beginning of June, but the pace wasn't exactly stellar.
Wish me luck.
