Preparing for the GRE

Who We Are. Free Resources. But what kind of physics is on the exam? These days, nearly all physics grad programs require or strongly recommend the Physics GRE. Quick side note: we've created the world's leading online GRE prep program that adapts to you and your strengths and weaknesses. Not sure what to study? Confused by how to improve your score?

Here is some information and general advice for the Physics GRE exam. ETS takes about a month to process scores and most graduate school applications are due in December and January, so November is the de facto "last chance" to take the Physics exam. The December test usually conflicts with Stanford's final exams, anyway. If you can adquately prepare, taking the April exam is ideal since you don't have to study for the GRE while preparing grad apps and, in the worst case, can "fall back" on the November exam if you don't do as well as you'd wanted. GRE subject tests are paper-based multiple choice exams that are administered at certified testing centers on Saturday mornings. You'll probably need a ride to get there. The exam is questions and three hours long.

The physics GRE is the test you must take to apply to physics grad schools. Its like the SAT but for physics. And just like the SAT, it really is a poor indicator of how you will do in grad school. But, its a hoop you must jump through, so here are some tips and resources. That comes to seconds per question, so speed is the name of the game.

Should You Take the Physics GRE?

The physics GRE is a standardized physics test that covers the material of most of the undergraduate physics courses you take at MIT. It is a test designed to help graduate school admission committees and fellowship sponsors assess your understanding of the field. Thus, you will be required to submit physics GRE scores in most grad school and fellowship applications. Your raw score is the number of questions you answered correctly minus one-fourth of the number you answered incorrectly. Then, your raw score is converted to a scaled score ranging from to The conversion between the raw score and scaled score depends on the difficulty of the administered test. Here are some tips given by graduate students in the physics department on how to prepare for the physics GRE:.

Quick links. If something about the physics GRE it isn't already discussed in here then please put it in here. New poster here! I also have all the old exams and Griffiths QM and Electrodynamics. I'd like to know how people approached those books. How should I read these books?
