I enjoy photographing flowers, more so then studying for the GRE.

I enjoy photographing flowers, more so then studying for the GRE.

I took my last and final practice test for the Physics GRE. I have read online that people tend to step up their game for the actual exam and I believe this. By the time I reached questions eighty on the practice test I was finished with it. I did not really try for the last twenty questions (as in no math was done) and ended the test with forty minutes to spare.

For this practice exam, GR8677, I received a 760. For a week an half of study I improved my practice test score from 590 to 760, 180 points. My goal was to get 800 and I feel that I can now do this. In the end I have two pages of notes for every topic to look over and memorize (mostly relativity gamma factors and atomic orbitals) before my actual exam tomorrow.

Just one more day until this part of the graduate application is complete. This weekend I will start working in depth on my personal statement and continue e-mailing professor at programs that interest me.
