Back in February, I bought an immense GRE practice book (literally the “5 lb. Book of GRE Practice Problems”), and I’ve spent the past two months working my way through it. Yesterday, I took the GRE, and earned a score higher than the score I got back in college. Granted, I barely studied then because I was taking tests nearly every week.
A few months ago, we taught Henry to ride a bike. He had mastered a balance bike before turning 2 and flew around the neighborhood on those tiny wheels. We thought that putting him on a pedal bike would allow him to keep up with us on family bike rides.
Where were we? Oh, yes, I’m still jobless and now spending every spare moment studying for the GRE. If Amy can paint eight walls in 47 minutes, and Tina can paint 13 walls in 34 minutes, how long does it take the pair to paint 16 walls? Stumped?
