GRE Prep Stress...

I just took the practice GRE at home, and it was rough, I tell ya. Mostly I think my problem was time; I didn't finish one of the math questions, and definately made some mistakes that were caused by rushing. It was harder to keep myself moving slowly and steadily as I got more tired and therefore more nervous. The good news is that I got in the 94th percentile on the verbal section, which was better than I had done before. The essay part; not so good. I figure that I only got a four and a five, for a 4.5 score total, mostly because I didn't leave enough time or space to be able to go back and organize my essays. But I did much better on the second one than the first; mostly because I had more of a sense of the time and so tried to pare down my arguments so that it would all be cohesive. I think I will have to concentrate on having a general structure laid out in my head for the introductory paragraph and conclusion paragraph. Blech. I certainly hope that people will be prepared for me to call in some pep talks in the week before and some sort of celebration on the night of the 16th.

I think I am going to go take a nap now. urgh...
