Yup, proud of you bhaya!

As for me . . .

1. Shukr'Allah for getting me through those tough 6 yeas, away from my family, getting me through days where I was just in my flat on my own, when friends were partying in places that didn't suit me . . and of course, the related issue of being apart from my Amma and getting both of us to this point, where I can finally start to move to a another stage in life.

2. Though it was for a short time, for giving me a wonderful father that I am so very proud of, and that during Abba's short term on this Earth, for giving us a very close relationship.

3. For my wonderful loving (extended) family, both here in the US and abroad (India, Pakistan, England). Without them, I don't know how I would have gotten through tough times or even more recently, to have that support while being away from home (England family).

4. For my online family  - (yup, that means YOU!) have 'met' so many wonderful people that I can call my brothers and sisters in Faith and some of whom I hope to meet in real life insha'allah - I truly mean this, not just for brownie points (though, those are welcome! lol).

Alhamdulillah for all that He  has given me, both which I had prayed for and which He granted me without me asking for it.

Thank You Allah for  making me born as a Muslim,giving good parents,good siblings,for providing decent means of livelihood,for making me free from any mental or physical disabilities and making me free from any debilitating illness,for good education and good friends.


There are soooo many things to thank for!!!Can't count Allah's blessings right now!!

well, it isn't that awesome sadah, it's more than what I was expecting though..I was expecting somewhere around 1200 but the range is 1300-1500..donno how this will translate into the new scale though. it's supposed to be out in november.. I just hope it's good enough.

And trust me, you won't need any tutorials. I was planning on taking them so I went for a few days and didn't find 'em necessary. Although it would've boosted my preparation time from a few days to at least a month Tongue

I used ETS's "The official guide to the GRE revised general test" and Barron's "New GRE 2012" . I've heard great reviews about Gruber's and Princeton Review but personally I found Barron's better because it has more practice questions than test taking strategies. Gruber's and Princeton are a little low on practice and full on heavy on strategies, especially Gruber's. But, you make your own choice based on what suits you. This is what worked for me. I'd still say that ETS's book is a must have coz it gives you a more accurate insight into the GRE. You can take my books if you want, for free. You'll only have to pay for the courier service which I guess will be more than the actual cost Cheesy

And don't forget to keep practicing as much as you can. Take as many mock tests as you can before the actual test, it really helps. I took just one and I regret not having taken more. Most books have four practice tests in them - two paper based and two on a CD. ETS's book comes with the powerprep software(you can also download this from ets.org for free). It's loaded with one test which according to most people gives you the nearest picture of what your real score is going to be. But, it didn't give me my real picture Tongue I guess I did well just on the test day Grin

Good Luck!

I trust you. Insha'Allah you will have more than required.

I so much appreciate your offer. Yeah I guess I wont need tutorials if at all I could give it much of my time, and I will do just that. A friend gave me alot of material on both exams. Considering the proximity I think I should rather limit to that, plus I can just purchase little more here. I had started going through that of Toefl but because of my final yeah thesis and exams I had to give it a break. Now that I'm almost done with that, sky is my limit. I visited ETS site but have not check any of their stuff, though I have a hard copy of their guide and the Baron's you mentioned, I have not heard of it.

Jazaks.

3-4 hours a day for a month is enough according to most people. I did much less than that so don't follow me Tongue

There is a lot of material available on the internet as well but, you can't always be sure of it. I strongly recommend that you get the ETS book so you can have a standard with which to compare other material. For example, the Barron's has solid geometry whereas the GRE never asks a question on that, ETS's book doesn't have even a single concept about solid geometry except for a few things on volumes of cylinders and cuboids. If I had relied only on Barron's then I would've wasted my time studying something irrelevant. That's what you should be careful about. On top of that, there's the difficulty level. If your material has things that are easier than what's required then you're doomed. And make sure all your material is for the revised test, there's still a lot of material on the older pattern that's being circulated. If you've any other questions PM me your email and we can take this conversation there. We've already spoiled sis Jannah's pet thread Grin

I've read somewhere, that a person who makes duas for others, the angels ask Allah to give the same to that person that they are asking for their brother/sister in Islam.





Wassalaam

And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186

As salaamu alaikum -

The Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم  said, “The supplication of a Muslim for his brother in his absence will certainly be answered. Everytime he makes a supplication for good for his brother, the angel appointed for this particular task says: `Ameen! May it be for you, too’.” [Muslim].
