I've been using the Kaplan GRE Prep Plus 2018 book to study for a few weeks (at first, passively and for a solid 3 weeks with multiple hours a day dedicated to practice problems and the online resources), and my practice test scores are getting worse. I take the test on Saturday and am confident that I will need to retake it. I'm wondering what study resources to use for the second time around. Perhaps the Kaplan method isn't helpful for me, and I'll find more utility out of other self-guided practice books/online resources, or if studying in person with a tutor or even taking the Kaplan course in person will be best. Does anyone have prior experience with not seeing their scores improve after studying? If so, what method was most helpful for moving your scores up? Thanks for the advice!
Hey everyone! I'm new to the forum so please bare with me! I'm about to be 26 years old and I finally decided to pursue my dream of becoming a licensed school psychologist. So far, I've been given the opportunity to interview at Fairleigh Dickinson University for their MA School Psychology program (accredited and have a Psy.D advanced standing track). I was recently accepted to Long Island University- Hudson for an M.S in School Psychology with Bilingual Extension (Not accredited), and Iona College for an MA in School Psychology (accredited). I plan on moving to Florida but I did not make the application deadline for the University of Central Florida's School Psychology EdS program, and it's unlikely that I would get in. Here's my dilema, I meet above all of the requirements for Nova Southeastern University's Psy.D program (and I really want to get in!) EXCEPT the GRE standard cut-off score. What my goal is for this specific program is a combined score of at least a 300. The first time I took the GRE I scored very low (combined score of 274). In my defense, math was never my best subject and I also did not prepare for the GRE at all (I did not study and I did not know anything about the test format, length, etc.) and I kind of went in blind. My question is will it be possible for me to go up 26 points on my GRE? I purchased the ETS GRE prep book straight from the makers of GRE and I was thinking of using Magoosh what do you guys think? Is Magoosh trustworthy or should I try a private tutor? Thank you guys Alex
