Please Help: Skinnier, taller serif font for the GRE test

Profuse THANK YOU in advance!

I need to know this font. It's on the official test-prep for GRE and (most likely) on the actual GRE exam. My whole future is dependent on my GRE score, which in turn relies on me switching all prep materials into this test font for greater familiarity.

I tried many Serif fonts with Microsoft Word, but to my eyes, they all seem a little chubbier and shorter than this one. I don't know if this has to do with screen resolution or anything else.

Thank you again. You'll be my hero.

Need help with my first serif typeface

Forums: 

Hi everyone!

This is my first attempt to get competent critique about my font. So please, Don’t beat me up too hard :)
I will be very appreciated about any critics and comments.
My first serif typeface I am trying to make a little bit retro, fashy, but contemporary.
It has 5 different serif shapes depending on the position of prominent parts of letters (maybe a little bit too complicated, but I like it).
I know there are still many things to work on and improve, but the main parts I am really not sure about are sharp ends of stems. The stems are the only parts without any serifs and I guess it makes the whole face unusual.
Please look at PDF files attached below.

Help identifying handwritten serif style font

Can someone help me identify this font. I've looked everywhere and so that I don't have this problem in the future, what type of font classification does this really fall under and what type of serifs are these called? To me the font seems reminiscent of an art deco look and school/marker style, but I'm not sure of that either at this point.

Thanks for any assistance you can give me. :)

Here are the beginnings of a type study I did a few years back. I finally dug it out of the myriad files and folders on my desktop and decided to put it up on here for critique.

Some notes as I'm looking at this with a fresh (and more learned) perspective:
1. I'd like to go through and redo some of the weights of certain strokes (the hairline stroke atop the 'a', the bowls on 'a' and 'd')
2. I think the character widths need some refining.
3. I'd like to put different tails on the 'a' and 'd' that more closely resemble the serifs on the 'd' and 'l' ascenders.
4. The serifs to the left of the 'i' and 'l' are indeed longer than those on the right (to mirror the serifs at the top of the ascenders)
5. I'd like the dot atop the 'i' to be heavier.

Beautifully crafted Flare typeface

Forums: 

I'm looking for some typophile's advice on some beautiful flared typeface. I really enjoy Aviano Flare (http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/insigne/aviano-flare/) but I can't seem to find any similar typefaces that spark the same emotional feel as Aviano.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated as I've been searching for a few days now. Thanks in advance!

Desperately need to know this cracked serif font

I'm looking for the font I lost that I used in a design. I'm pretty sure I downloaded or paid for it somewhere but I've lost the file and have been searching online for the font for 17 hours. Please help! I don't know the name. I need it for a couple products I'm making for a client and the deadline is by tomorrow. The font has to match, as I used it as his logo on all his other products. It will be a huge let down if I can't reproduce this for him. Here's my email address: SpittingImageGraphics@gmail.com
THANKS FOR ANY HELP OR INFO!

Typeface used for National Geographic's new 'Found' blog

National Geographic has a new blog showcasing forgotten imagery,
it also features a rather lovely italic serif for its masthead.

Initially, I thought it was a Barnbrook face due to the seated italic U, I was wrong.

Anybody have an idea as to which typeface they've used here?

Font ID: serif, with numbers only

Anyone have any ideas? I ran this sample through a couple of other font ID sites with no matches yet.

The story behind this font, in case it helps in any way:

My boss had me redo a set of business cards for a number of new recruits, but he doesn't have the originals, so I'm tasked with recreating them from scratch. I scanned his card in and re-arranged the numbers so as to not reveal addresses/phone numbers.

The curious thing is that all the alphabetical letters were done in Century Gothic, but the numbers were done in this unknown font, and thus I only have the numbers as a sample.

The closest match I've found so far is Courier, but differences are still there.

Any insights are much appreciated!

Thank you in advance,
Ryan

Deconstructing serifs on broad-nib based typefaces

Forums: 

I'm breaking down typefaces to try understand their construction — brush strokes, direction, angle etc (manual Kalliculator you could say). Currently I'm looking at broad-nib based typefaces, and I'm hoping someone could shed some light on their design and construction with regards to serifs.

This is what I think it may be: the white lines being the 'brush', starting at 30 degrees
and arrows the direction it travels — are these serifs shapes constructed without regard to the brush or do they follow it some how?

Another example is Dolly, where the serif is asymmetric and I've no idea how that's drawn,

Thanks

Confounding font

Hello everyone, this is my first post here. I couldn't figure out this font with whatthefont or identifont or the help of a few co-workers, or going through my whole font library one at a time, so I ask if you recognize this font.

I have a photo of the font, and a version where I blackened a selection of the letters, and a version where I blackened and sheared the letters back to an angle that seemed non-italicized. Thanks guys.
