Mad props to Steve Levitt for accurately describing how my GRE prep is going.
Yes, bhaiyyon and behenon, we’re taking the GRE on Nov 6th. Salient observations so far include 14-hour work-days (so I have no time, or energy, to prepare on week-days), a complete and total amnesia regarding probabilities, Euclidean geometry and other high school math, a surprisingly good showing in vocabulary, and a complete cluelessness regarding which universities to apply. I’m taking one thing at a time here; looking at maxing the test for now.
- Curiously enough, we, ‘take’ tests in American English, and ‘give’ tests in Indian/British-English. Both refer to the act of answering questions in an examination.
