    Tasks To complete
  1. Print Departmental materials
  2. Register with all on-line application sites
  3. Figure out who needs what information>
    • Statement of purpose?
    • Summary of research?
    • Specific types of recommendation letters

  4. Breathe

7 months to get the applications done. I want to get them all done by December to get them in really early and out of mind. It will take a month (apparently) to score the subject test. So, earliest it will orobably get out is mid-December. I must remember to call Berkeley December 5th to check my status adn explain when I took the subject test if it has yet to arrive.

    Other Tasks
  1. Other Programs?
  2. Study for GRE Subject
  3. Register for GRE
    • Registration begins in August

  4. Take GRE November 12th (most likely date based on previous dates
  5. Retake GRE general? (is 1300 good enough?)

I have 4 months to study for the subject test. Should be good. I already have a test book. I need to find good study materials that I can take to the gym. An hour or so 4-5 times a week for 4 months gauranteed? Pretty good since that's not counting other study time.

Any idea what books would be good? I'm thinking general psych texts, pretty much. :|

Looks like a lot, but I've already taken a big step just by organizing everything.

Princeton Review materials are always good. Not sure if they do subject specific GRE tho.

General psych texts are what they recommend. And I do beleive that the Princeton Review offers some subject test books... In fact, I have one somewhere...

Is there content in the Princetin books? The book I have has 5 tests ans a glossary of 2000 common terms which is good, but not really conceptually useful.

So much to relearn. I tried a few random questions from one of the tests adn got them all wrong.

Didn't you know that you automatically fail the GRE if you can't spell the name of the study guide right? Geezus man... start studying.

The lack of knowledge of the location of said book gives you an idea of how much I've used it.
That being said: not a clue. Sorry. I just know that's what we were told to study from (back in the day when I was actually going to take the GRE.. when I had hope for the future and stuff. Ha.).

Anyway... still hating you. Bastard.
