I’ve spent the better part of today poring over the Verbal Reasoning chapter of my GRE study book.
I wasn’t exactly worried about verbal reasoning initially. I’m a reader and a writer; I like to think that words are my strong suit. But then they started throwing around crazy words like “ameliorated” and “iconoclasm.” That’s when I decided I might need to make some vocabulary flashcards after all.
Something else I noticed is that when it comes to questions taken from a passage, I score exponentially higher when I’m interested in the passage subject material. Got 100% on the Wuthering Heights passage questions. Got 0% on the Soviet Union agriculture passage questions. Not good.
In other news, it’s the Strawberry Full Moon tonight. Go outside and enjoy it.
