I am taking the test in April and will probably get a 75% score. I also still do not know what schools to apply for a Masters in Applied/Industrial Math. Any suggestions?

May I suggest high doses of Red Bull and/or coffee for people who can not finish early enough. I tried it with a practice test and finished with 40 minutes to spare.

## Masters in Applied/Industrial Math

I really cannot wait to have this test over and done with (with a respectable score of course). These GREs have very very little to do with the actual process of studying higher mathematics in a masters or phd program.

It's like enjoying mathematics as an undergraduate is enjoying the occasional beer. The GRE test expects us to shotgun 66 beers in under 3 hours! (No wonder I feel drunk after completing these practice tests)

Anyway, I must admit though, that studying for this test has been a wonderful review of all of these subjects... It has given me a true appreciation of how vast of a subject mathematics really is.

Are you an engineer looking for schools in applied/industrial? I'm progressing towards mathematical/theoretical physics.

I am not required by most schools to take this test but it seems like too much "fun" to pass up. I am having to teach myself a few of the topics just because I am not taking them until next year but I am kind of excited for it. Going back and reviewing all the material I never fully understood has been fun and rewarding.

But if you go to any of these schools: Univ. Minnesota, University Delaware, UIUC, Ohio State, or Purdue, how do you like them?

One semester, I taught discussion sections in the mathematics building, Altgeld Hall, and it's somewhat worn down, but not as much as the Social Science building. Other than that, I know very little about the Mathematics department there.

For applied math, Yale, Cornell and Brown are very good universitiesBut if you go to any of these schools: Univ. Minnesota, University Delaware, UIUC, Ohio State, or Purdue, how do you like them?

From my experience of taking GRE Math, I solved all the sample tests within permitted time but I did not finish the real test in time, I left some questions unfilled. The real one is much harder, there were many "word questions" and I hate those

My recommendation is : do problems in REA GRE math practice tests http://www.amazon.com/GRE-Mathematics-R ... 878916377-, you will see many question as "tricky" as questions in the book

I'm somewhat certain that if I were to buy the newest edition, I would only stand to gain the math review section since the tests appear to be an exact reprint. I doubt the review section would offer anything new.

I'm looking at many different schools. I hope to get into a place like Columbia or Northwestern, but my numbers might fall a bit short.

Has anyone heard good/bad things about Michigan (Ann Arbor) or Iowa (Iowa City)?
