There is exactly 2 weeks before my exam. Yesterday was my first day of “real” studying. I know that 2 weeks may not seem like it’s enough time to study for it but I know I can do it, well, I don’t really have a choice now.
I have been studying for the GRE’s on and off for the past year or so. I have just been too scared to book my appointment to take the exam. I have been out of school for so long now and I haven’t done any math since high school and it just scares me that I will do extremely poorly on the math section even though I know that the math section may not be as pertinent to the programs that I may apply for as for other programs. I often wished I had taken the GRE’s either right out of high school or the summer after first year of college.
So, I have decided to focus my studying on the math section first. I can study vocabulary whenever (I have downloaded a great app on my phone that Kaplan has made which makes it easy for me to go over a bit of vocabulary everyday). Today, is my chores day and to figure out what my course of action for studying tomorrow will be. Yesterday I left the school a bit earlier than intended because the math section was just frustrating me too much. I read the sections in August and I still can’t do the drills, so it’s time to reread and write down some notes that I think will help me. Create a little cheat sheet while I work through the problems now. By next week, I hope I won’t be needing those cheat sheets.

I must take this first step to reach my goal. I just need to focus on my GRE s right now. The countdown has begun.
