  1. Hi everybody, A friend of mine is desperately seeking participants to fill out a very quick questionnaire for her MSc thesis. I'm sure many of you realise how difficult it is to find willing participants so I'd be forever grateful is you can spare 5 minutes to complete the survey! Here is the link to the questionnaire: https://kingstonpcs.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_2o4uVGJGpPPWFff The study is very interesting, aiming to uncover the importance of parental influence on alcohol addiction. Many thanks
  2. I took the pGRE already once and got a less than idea score. I will be taking it again in another 6 months. What is the best study material, besides the previous exams (I know about those already) that you used to get your pGRE scores up? A book? Study guide? Textbook? Trying to get an 800+. To be clear, I am talking about the physics subject test.
  3. I suggest that we create a list of the best study apps. I just downloaded One Note, I did not have it on my computer before. Pomodero is pretty good too. Anything else?
  4. Anyone apply to the masters of child study and education of masters of teaching?
  5. Hi, What is some good reading to do in the summer before starting a graduate program in speech-language pathology? Also important to mention... I graduated with a bachelor's of arts in English. I have NO clinical experience, except about ten hours of observation. I've taken biology and chemistry, but other than that, I've had no other "hard" science education. I was accepted into a program designed for us 3-year students, but is there anything you recommend reading to give me a head start? Perhaps about anatomy, disorders, etc. I just want to be on top of my game. I appreciate it so much! Thanks!
  6. Hello all! I have applied to the Master of Arts- child study and education at OISE, and was wondering if anyone had received interviews offers yet? (to start school in 2016 fall) The waiting is making me extremely anxious... especially since I thought I had a good chance of being accepted
  7. Hello! My name is Kristin Corey and I am a doctoral student at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. I am conducting my dissertation study on FORMER caregivers of people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias that will explore the health of caregivers after caregiving ends. Participants will complete an anonymous online survey that will take approximately 20-30 minutes. Participants must (a) be 18 years or older, (b) be a former caregiver of a person with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia, (c) have provided informal, unpaid care (such as assistance with personal care, managing of finances or medical care, housekeeping, or meal preparation) for at least 6 consecutive months, and the person who received care must be deceased. You can access the survey by clicking on the link below. Please consider taking the survey if you meet the criteria and/or forward the link to individuals who have cared for a person with dementia. Many participants are needed! Thank you very much!! https://umassdartmouth.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_dbTt4NMpjF7wQlf------------------------------Kristin Corey Gerontology Nurse Practitioner/PhD Candidate University of Massachusetts Dartmouth kcorey1@umassd.edu
  8. The Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER) announces its first ever summer course hosted in the vibrant capital of Greece. Spend two weeks in the summer of 2017 exploring the city and learning about central topics in art & architecture of Ancient Greece. Students (graduate and undergraduate) and non-students (practitioners, researchers, academics) who would like to learn about ancient Greek art and architecture are welcome to attend. The aim of the course is to introduce Athens’s arts and architecture from antiquity to modern times. The first week is devoted to arts and the second to architecture. In addition to regular (formal) 39 hours of lectures the course includes visits to most important sites of ancient and modern Athens and its surrounding islands (Hydra, Poros, Aegina) and archaeological sites (Acropolis, Parthenon, Delphi, Mycaenus, Epidaurus). Guest speakers and two roundtable discussions on the future of teachings and researching arts and architecture in a global world with invited speakers from different countries and different continents are also an addition to this course of study. For more information, visit www.atiner.gr/501aa.
  9. Hi there, I'm a kiwi who did my undergraduate in New Zealand and Australia (two degrees). I'm currently looking for options for financing my studies in the USA for grad school in engineering. Apart from the Fullbright (which everyone seems to know only about), are there other options for financing/funding both my tuition and accommodation? Any helpful advise would be much appreciated Cheers,
  10. Hello all! I'm trying to study for my 2nd time at the Biology GRE subject test and am looking for more interactive, class or video study sessions. Simply reading doesn't seem to be doing it for me. If only there was actually a test prep course out there! Any suggestions? I had seen a review here: http://study.com/academy/course/gre-biology-study-guide-test-prep.html#courseNavigation and was wondering if anyone had feedback about review courses on there as well.
  11. Hello! I am a Masters student at University of Leicester, and would love for my fellow psychologists to fill out my survey for my final year project! The research focuses on attachment and personality styles influence on romantic relationships. The link is below: http://goo.gl/forms/OgjxAedzLVwlAC8W2 Thank you!
  12. I have an opportunity to apply for a zoology grad program, but I will have to take the subject specific GRE since my undergraduate degree was not in Biology. I have been working in a natural history museum since undergrad building my experience, but that means my bio knowledge is rather specialized (taxonomy, anatomy, evolution of the taxa I've worked with) so I haven't needed to know the Krebs cycle or steps of Mitosis since high school. I've been taking a few bio classes on the side, but the other students are on completely different study tracks or way beyond rereading Bio 101 textbooks. The program would be on the specialized things I already know and am working on, but I still have to jump through the hoops everyone else does for admission. I've already done the general GRE and ended up with good enough scores, though I'm still waiting on the official mailer with my writing scores and percentiles. Now its just subject specific and plugging away on the research I'm doing at the museum. I'm hoping there are a few people who would like to chat regularly about the sorts of general topics that would be on the test that we all might not have reviewed in a while... even if they're not taking the test and just want to chat about enzymes or horizontal gene transfer, or need to review the topics for a specific class or something. I've got a giant Bio textbook on my desk to start reading and its a bit daunting to go it alone.
  13. The study of crime is an important aspect in criminology as it helps students understand the concepts applied in criminology. Students learn different concepts in criminology. For example, students learn on sources of crime, how different theories are used to explain crime. Also, students learn how to measure crime. Reflecting what one has learned is important as it helps one apply the knowledge acquired and identify major issues in the area of study. Most students find it hard to reflect on what they have learned. This paper analyses the concept learned in classes so as to demonstrating understanding. Also, the paper will show how to apply the knowledge gained the society. The thesis statement is reflecting the content learned in class and applying the new knowledge in future. Stephan-john
  14. I'm planning on taking the GRE in about three weeks but Im panicking a bit. I'm a foreign student (foreign to the US) and haven't had to take an exam thats in the same format as the GRE before. I'm currently doing a masters and work when I'm not studying so I've found it hard to find the time to study. Can anyone give me any tips or advice on how to study for the exam or what to expect? I'm getting quite desperate at this point lol.
