Preparing for the Physics Subject GRE Test

The Society of Physics Students in conjunction with the Office of Undergraduate Studies, have put together a FREE GRE preparation course for OSU Undergraduates. The idea is to provide materials and course structure that will help students prepare for the Physics GRE Subject Test, as efficiently as possible over the period from September thru early November 2010. This web page will be the primary source for materials, schedules, and links to solutions.
