I got a call from our son James yesterday. He had just finished taking the Graduate Record Exam (GRE). Except for the essay portion they get the results back immediately afterwards. He got a 560/800 on the verbal portion and 800/800 on the quantitative portion. This is particularily noteworthy because it is an online, adaptive test. The questions presented get harder if you are getting them all correct or easier if you are having difficulties with them. He said it was “brutal”. He just barely finished the problems in the time given. He was pretty “up” about things though–as well he should be. We are very proud of him.
