(GRE Success! ) File - Monthly Reminder


Hello,

This is to remind you that you are still a member of GRESUCCESS, a group that aspires to help people, and dispel rumors regarding GRE, TOEFL, TSE, and other standardized tests, as well as, the entire application process in general. The group is also attempting to broaden its arms with quaint research on general aspects and observations of studying abroad. Please feel free to mail your concerns to the group by emailing to gre-success <at> yahoogroups.com

1. If you have any private queries, or if you are shy of asking a question in front of hundreds of people, let me re - assure you that you are entering a group of cultured people who will not laugh, disapprove or hold you in disdain. If still, you are apprehensive, please mail your queries to me at yamanoor <at> yahoo.com

2. Kindly try to make maximum use of the group by accessing and contributing to the links, database, files, photos and calendar sections of the group. Please be discreet. I shall remove any offensive material. Kindly add to any of the relevant tables in the database. Please upload files that you think will be useful for the members in the group. Kindly check for, and abstain from adding too large, or virus loaded files. Please upload any photographs of yours that you would wish to share with us (This shall be subject to scrutiny though..flimsy bikinis and flashy pets are fine...but I still insist on cross checking! :)). Also, please upload any important deadlines that you think might benefit the group. It is also not a bad idea to put up your birth date, test date etc on the calendar. This is a group full of fun loving people and we would like to share your joy!

3. Unfortunately, our group does not have the rights to use the polls section. I don't know how that came into existence. Kindly bear with me. We shall use free tools available on the internet for the same.

4. Please try to visit my home page http://www.yamanoor.com/gre/ to take advantage of the resources linked, that shall help you in your entire application process.

5. Also kindly note, I strongly discourage any personal messages or communications across the group. I will be moderating without exception, any messages that are either low in utility, or are sensitive, racial, or disapprovable in any manner.

6. It is my earnest request that you tell more friends about the group so that we can help serve a larger group of interested people. Also, if you have web pages, kindly consider using the promotion tools to make the process of subscribing easier for your visitors.

7. Do mail in more suggestions as and when you wish and think it is necessary. Every word is listened to.

8. A final note, as you see, the group's objective is to not only help and provide suggestions, it is also to dispel all sorts of rumors about the process that keep cropping up now and then. So, it is upto you to ask as many questions as you can.

Thanks for being a part of the movement.

Good Luck

Srihari

Re: (GRE Success! ) Improving your Language Skills

Hello Praveen,
 
You are welcome. There are some good websites listed on the group site. I am afraid the list is old. We did not know how many people were using them, so we did not update them for a while. I will try to get started on updating the website list as soon as possible. A good Google search, however cliched, is of course always recommended.
 
I will update the group once the list has been updated. Meanwhile do visit the group website, links and files section. Several people have uploaded interesting files in the past.
 
Good Luck,
 
Srihari

Hello Everyone,
 
I recently typed this up for someone close to me. Though it is not a comprehensive guide, I thought I will share it with the larger group anyway. Do let us know if you are in need of any help with improvi ng your reading, writing or speaking skills.
 
Good Luck,

Language Improvement is a long process. Don't try quick fixes. Practice quite a bit.
 
In the beginning, pick up good books and read slowly and deliberately. Make a note of how language and punctuation are being used.
 
Take a whole host of online tests: Reader's Digest (will be tough in the beginning, but that's okay), other websites.
 
Ask me for help. I will continue to correct your language for your benefit.
 
Find out if RD is cheap, or if there are other very high quality, yet cheap magazines you can subscribe to. You can also get by reading used books.
 
For language, here are a few authors I suggest: J.K. Rowling, P.G . Wodehouse (you will need a dictionary with you. He is among the best authors, and twists and turns language as much as he can, a great learning experience!), Charles Dickens, Alistair McClean, R.K. Narayanan, Agatha Christie, Ngaio Marsh and maybe a few more.
 
I know you are very busy, but try to fit in a reading schedule. I used to read in the bus, during breaks, during travel and so on and so forth. Reading while eating is also another option.
 
Let me know what else I can help you with for your language skills.
 
Srihari

Re: (GRE Success! ) Regarding toefl

1. You look up the test format, take a sample test, identify your weak areas and you start attacking them with a plan. This would include preparing, taking tests and so on..
 
2. Whether or not two weeks are enough is determined by your skill level. You should also realize that TOEFL is not all that straightforward, even though it is very easy. They do try to trick you - so give yourself a little time for strategies. Frankly, after preparing for GRE and based on my background, I just read up the stuff on the train leading to the exam..

(GRE Success! ) Re: Fwd: Need ur Suggestions!

Hi Raja
Welcome to Gre-success! You must start looking through web pages
of various universities, departments and research groups that interest
you and try to come up with a list. Then it might be easier for others
to comment on your chances. It may not be possible for anyone to give
you a list, because most people here do not know your interests. You
know your interests best! Hence, my suggestion would be that you work
on it. It is also very important to understand that MS programs are
often non-funded and you may need to fund yourself for at least a
semester.
