Ask me anything about the GRE that can't be answered with a simple google search, and I'll be happy to reply!

How many times did you have to give the GRE to get that score in Quant?

Hi chgre, I had to take the revised GRE 3 times to achieve my top score of 168 on Quant. (I also took the old GRE twice.)

How much do you charge for reading comprehension ? I have read the official guide and other explanations and I do the know the points they emphasise on, but I am unable to apply them.

Well, I charge...quite a lot, at least for a GRE tutor. I'm here on GRE Prep Club not to find new private tutoring students--although I do occasionally--but to share free information with students who might not be able to afford the services of someone like me.

-Brian

p.s. If you're still interested, then here are my detailed rates.

Hi Brian,
I found you on Reddit and then stumbled upon you here. I was wondering what you think an achievable score is for a person who studies "unconventionally". As of now, I don't have any books, but instead do a lot of practice problems on this forum and learn from them. For lessons, I watch videos, but spend more time practicing them than watching, as most people point out. My worry is that because there is such an abundance of material online, that I might not sharpen ALL the skills I need for the GRE.

Should I take a Practice Test and get a baseline feel for how my studying has taken me and then possibly readjust or is it possible to get away with my current way?
