Okay, so I didn't see another thread like this so if there is I'm sorry!
I plan on applying for Masters programs in planning for the Fall of 2010 after graduating from undergrad in May 2010. I'm looking into the GRE and am trying to figure out the best way to go about it.
I plan on taking it in October, and then again in February for later applications if I feel like I need to. (Is it bad that I will only be able to take it once before the first applications are due? I just decided to go ahead and apply directly out of school and there dont seem to be any early dates offered.)
My main questions are:
Is it better to take it computer or paper based?
What prep books can you recommend?
Are the classes worth it? (I was looking at the Kaplan class but its very expensive - has anybody taken this? Thoughts on the class? Are there any other classes that are possibly cheaper?)
Really any advice would be appreciated! My GPA is not great so I really do to do top notch on the GRE.
