GRE Post

I scored a perfect 340 on the GRE.


After 20 years of tutoring the GRE — and a total of 6 official attempts — I am happy to report that I scored a verified perfect 340 (V170, Q170, AW 6) on the GRE at home. 


Having finally achieved my long-time personal goal of a earning a perfect 340 GRE score, I am officially taking this opportunity to retire from taking the exam.

As the great champion Ken Jennings once said of playing Jeopardy, taking the real GRE is a young person's game.  I'm 40 now, with a wife and three kids at home, and I'm simply getting too old for it.  Plus, I no longer have anything to prove on the GRE, having now demonstrated my own abilities on the test beyond a shadow of a doubt. 


Finally, I want to walk away from the GRE at the top of my game, like Barry Sanders or Michael Jordan — the 1st retirement, not the 2nd one.

Speaking of GRE tutoring: I've been a professional GRE instructor since 2002, and I can teach you how to get a great GRE score, too!
