I See Dead Pixels

I read a few GRE prep books and a few websites about tips for the exam.  They all recommended simulating the sterile testing room by taking a timed practice exam on a computer with no distractions. 

Yeah, I did all that but that didn't prepare me for the "Alien Invasion" font I was distracted with. Everything I read on the screen felt too pixelated to me and I was straining to read, the only thing missing was the single button mouse and the 8.5 inch floppy disk.

I don't know, maybe I was the only one whose LCD monitor was hooked up to a Commodore 64 but my tip for anyone preparing for the GRE is to switch out your Ariel or Times New Roman for a highly pixelated font
