I wanted to know how other people scored vs. how they scored in the actual GRE to compare the standards.
I thought I wrote a pretty decent essay for Princeton Review's test... It had some examples that was only superficially touched, but I still thought the essay was better than the one I wrote on the actual GRE. I didn't have actual concrete examples or a developed conclusion in the real one (I ran out of time). Both had "elementary" word usage.
Princeton Review: 3.5 (post-GRE)
While we're act it, I might as well compare the rest of the scores...
Princeton Review: 151V, 155Q (pre-GRE)
GRE: 155V, 159Q
So how did you do?
And if anyone has any tips on scoring at least a 5, please send them my way! I have been studying intensely for this portion. My biggest fear is that, come test day, the prompt they will give me is the only one I haven't prepared for!
