Main Question or Discussion Point
I spent a whole year taking practice tests and I took an entire princeton review course. I have studied intermittently for the last 4 months. I memorized the entire formula sheet from the kaplan math book and more and maybe used 2 of the formulas on the test. I took 4 practice tests and scored a 165 in quant on the highest one...but now I took the real GRE and got a 158 which was the score I got on the first time I ever took a practice test! All that time studying was for nothing. I feel so depressed. I am a math major. There's no reason why I shouldn't score a 170 on quant. I dont understand why I can do all of this advanced math and plasma physics with a 3.8 gpa but I can't get a good score on a middle school math test. My resume is otherwise impeccable but no matter what I do I always screw up on the GRE because there isn't enough time to solve everything.
