For the sciences, figure out any weak areas and make flashcards.

For verbal, there really isn't much you can do. Getting in the 12-15 range is 50% getting good passages and 50% luck.

So that makes it 100% luck, huh ? Besides practicing verbal sections to make sure you finish everything on time, there isn't anything more you can do.

I'm having this problem too. I think it helps to try and focus your energy on eliminating stupid errors (determine what question types trip you up, recheck calculations, etc etc).
