GRE Kaplan Practice Results

I took a practice GRE test with Kaplan this past Saturday (from home). I swear the exam is about stamina only. 2 hours into the test I was tired and just picked random answers to get the test over with ( bad bad!).

Anyways here are my results:

Math - 141

Verbal- 150

I definitely have to take more tests to build my stamina. Definetly need to dedicate at least 2 hours a day until test day - taking the GRE on June 30

Preparing to take them in June.

GREs post-poned

I switched my GRE date from February 6, 2012 to June 30, 2012. Since I am not applying to any programs this cycle, there is no need for me to take the GREs so soon. Plus, I just want to it once. So if I have more time, I can study more and master the GREs.
