GRE Prep Group - First Meeting

We can select a different location for future meetings if people want.

This place is right off the Diversey Brown line.  Buses stop there as well, and I think street parking is easily available.

If you have any books or other study materials, please bring them.

There is no cost but, to keep the group running, $2 donations are appreciated.

First meeting agenda:

- Introduce ourselves -  when we're taking the test, what we want to work on, etc.

- Plan meeting schedule, times, and locations

- Discuss study materials and strategies

I look forward to meeting everyone.

    The next meeting will be posted shortly. Lauren, I don't have specific recommendations for texts, but make sure it's up to date. The test was revised in August 2011, especially the verbal section. I believe the test is always changing slightly, so the more up to date, the better.

    Thursday evenings are usually good for me. I could do the occasional Tuesday morning, but every other week, I have my psych appointment and every Tuesday evening, I'm working.

    Thursdays are good for me im usually done with work at 6. not that my schedule has to be the only influence on the meet.. Mike, is there any text you would recommend picking up for the meeting or in general. like I said, its been a while since I've been in any formal learning institution and could use all the help/advice I can get :)
    Thanks!
