  1. Hi all!!! I'm an incoming senior at Purdue who is about to take her GRE for the first time in August. I am currently on a study plan with Magoosh. For those have relied on magoosh, did you feel this program helped prepare you for the test? What are some good tips for studying? What do you wish you knew/did differently? Best!~
  2. This is an argument task topic off of the ETS page. I used a random number generator to pick the topic, and timed it out to 30 minutes. I am using Magoosh as my study prep, so I am using the guidelines used from them! This is my first attempt at an argument task, so any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance! Topic: The following is a letter to the editor of an environmental magazine. "Two studies of amphibians in Xanadu National Park confirm a significant decline in the numbers of amphibians. In 1975 there were seven species of amphibians in the park, and there wer
  3. I'm using Magoosh as my GRE Study Prep, and following the guidelines they used! I got the topic off the ETS website and used a random generator to pick the topic. I timed myself exactly 30 minutes. This is my first attempt, so it's probably pretty rough :) and this is an Issue Task Essay! Topic: Educators should base their assessment of students' learning not on students' grasp of facts but on the ability to explain the ideas, trends, and concepts that those facts illustrate. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the recommen
  4. I'm using Magoosh to study for the GRE, and while I do great with the easy and medium questions, I struggle with a lot of the "hard" or "very hard" questions. I've heard that the math practice problems on Magoosh tend to be harder than what's actually on the test. Is this true?
  5. Hello! I take the GRE in 6 days. I'd like some advice on how my remaining time would best be spent studying (specifically math). I'm using Magoosh, and while I do great on the easy/medium questions, I really struggle with the hard or very hard ones. Should I continue practicing and mastering these medium level questions or should I focus on learning the hard ones? Also, I plan on applying to Ph.D. counseling psychology programs. Does anyone know how much GRE scores matter or how much weight is given to them for these kinds of programs?
  6. I currently have Manhattan for GRE, and my first test score was acceptable (163/160) but not for my top school. I've exhausted most of the materials and practice tests with Manhattan and was wondering if anyone is currently using Magoosh? How is it, do you feel the practice tests have been helpful?
  7. Today I begin my journey to take the GRE for the second time. I'll be honest, I didn't study at all last time I took the GRE almost a year and a half ago (not even a practice test; I must be crazy/stupid). Shockingly I was not pleased with my score. Who would have thought? Anyway I'm ready to take this seriously now. I'm trying to apply for PhD programs in psychology in the Fall of 2017. I've signed up for a GRE test on July 15th. That gives me about 5 months a prep time. I was wondering if anyone had some strong study plans? Currently, I have the following prep materials: Magoosh;
  8. I'm taking the GRE for the first time in a few days, and I would really like it if anyone could help critique my essays. I have no idea where my essay scores lie on the GRE scale from 0-6, so if anyone has any advice or comments, please let me know! I would really like to improve as much as I can in the next few days, if possible. Anything is appreciated! Prompt 1 (Issue Task): The best leaders are those who encourage feedback from the people whom they lead. Essay 1: Leaders throughout history have all lead in their own way. Some do their best on their own, while others c
  9. 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
  10. I've been working really hard to better my score in the other sections, but haven't hit the essay portion of the test as well as I would've like...Thanks in advance for taking a look at this. Everything you need is below. Here is an official scoring guide as well for ya: https://www.ets.org/gre/revised_general/prepare/analytical_writing/argument/scoring_guide Prompt: The following is taken from a memo from the advertising director of the Super Screen Movie Production Company. "According to a recent report from our marketing department, during the past year, fewer people attended
  11. Taking the GRE is just a few days! I've been working really hard on the other sections, but am worrying a bit about the essays...Thanks in advance for looking at this,everything you need is below. Here is a scoring guide as well: https://www.ets.org/gre/revised_general/prepare/analytical_writing/issue/scoring_guide The Issue: The best way for a society to prepare its young people for leadership in government, industry, or other fields is by instilling in them a sense of cooperation, not competition. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagr
  12. Some weeks ago, I took the first of the two PowerPrep exams after going over the GRE's quantitative content in their quantitative prep book and doing the practice questions. I got a 170V and a 164Q. I had done no real verbal prep besides doing a few vocab apps on the bus en route to work over the past month or so. These were good scores, but I wanted to improve my math performance (and touch up on the Verbal section: I missed one critical reading question but still got 170 with the curve), so I subscribed to Magoosh. They seemed to have an extensive bank of questions they wrote. With on
  13. This is my first go at this. Because I timed myself, it may be rough (and maybe easier for you to grade). I understand I may need more length to this, but I am more interested in critiques on having clearly addressed the instructions and the creativity in persuading the audience. Here is a scoring guide to help: https://www.ets.org/gre/revised_general/prepare/analytical_writing/issue/scoring_guide Everything else is below. Thank you in advance! Prompt: The best way to teach is to praise positive actions and ignore negative ones. Write a response in which you discuss the e
  14. So, this was my first go at it, so it'll probably be easy for you to grade. Having said that, I know I need to work on getting more length within the 30 minute time frame. I'm more interested what you think about how fluid the essay is and what assumptions you think I missed or also could have focused on. Also, here is some grading criteria that might help:https://www.ets.org/gre/revised_general/prepare/analytical_writing/argument/scoring_guide. Everything else is here below. Thank you in advance! The prompt: The council of Maple County, concerned about the county's becoming overdeve
  15. Hi all, if you could please, please take a moment to evaluate these short writings for me I would really appreciate it. Also any thoughts on how long these should be generally? I added the word count at the bottom of each. One is an issue prompt and the other and argument prompt, with the topics above it. Issue prompt 30 mins Universities should require every student to take a variety of courses outside the student's field of study. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the claim. In developing and supporting your pos
  16. I took a full-length Magoosh practice test (including both essays) and scored Q149 and V164. Two weeks and more prep work later, I took the PowerPrep I test and was surprised to see a far lower verbal score: 157 (quant remained the same). That drop is three points larger than the lower range Magoosh predicted for verbal. The only reason I can think of to account for the big drop in verbal is making test five hours long by a foolish coincidence. I started taking the "demo" PowerPrep test thinking it was the real thing - that involved writing two full essays and answering about half a secti
  17. Has anyone with a Magoosh GRE premium account taken the Magoosh practice test? Did you feel like it was worth your time as far as predicting a somewhat accurate score? How does it compare to ETS powerprep software practice tests? My GRE exam is on Friday. Not sure if I should spend my last few days taking practice tests or just reviewing relevant material.
  18. Hey just wanted to give everyone a heads up that magoosh is having an extra 20% off sale today because of Valentine's Day. Got the 6 month package for $80 instead of the usual $100. I'd been waiting for something like this to make me purchase so I finally did haha
