GRE Subject Test

In Search of Artifice is a blog written by Joshua Eckroth recently it rated some good GRE subject test preparation material:

GRE Computer Science (REA) 5th Ed. (2004) – 1 star,

GRE Computer Science (REA Test Preps)(1998) – 1.5 stars,

GRE Computer Science (Graduate Record Examination Series, Gre-21) (1997) – 1 star,

GRE: Practicing to Take the Computer Science Test (3rd ed) (1997) – 2.5 stars.

The last one in combination with ETS’s official sample test (PDF, 53 pages) should be a good start in your preparation strategy.

Another incredibly useful resource is Christopher Scaffidi’s (CMU) booklet (PDF, 117 pages).

For extra study material, check out Howard Zhou’s (Georgia Tech) notes.

Admission Stanford etc

Admission in Stanford ,Harvard , MIT or other Top of the line Universities

According to my experience :
1.All require GRE subject Test. Some claim that it is not needed but in order that your application stands out I recommend you take GRE subject Test. This will facilitate a decision in your favor.
2.They need some research work. Preferably published individually or jointly with a professor. You may even have some peer reviews. People plan this well in advance and somehow wriggle through and get their name inserted along with a professor.
3.Your field of interest should match with a professor willing to accept you.
4.Excellent Recommendations.
5.Outstanding essays

6.Excellent GPA
7.Good GRE and TOEFL scores
8.And above all apply early.

All or some of these come to play to decide on your application. And above all pray. There is nothing to beat luck.
If you are admitted by these institutes than financing your education will not be a problem.
