    The GRE is a joke, seriously. Don't waste your time studying.

    I got mediocore scores on mine without trying and still got into my PhD program no problem. If you're in the sciences, don't sweat it, most programs don't even give it a passing glance, it's just forced by the university in a lot of cases. Seriously, don't waste your time studying, just look at a few test sets a week before and you're fine.
