    I know re-writers with 13/14 in sciences and 7s in verbal in a similar grind with no improvement. :(

    Personally, I just got a feel for the answers. Then again, I didn't improve in verbal much throughout practice. It was always between 9-11. Though, the real thing was killer.

    I'd be happy with a 9-11.

      Yeah, Verbal can be a b***h:
      First attempt, 21N, August 2004: 8PS-8BS-5VR
      Second Attempt, 32S, August 2005:11PS-14BS-8VR

      Now for the projected score for my August 2006 (third attempt) score:
      7PS-10BS-7VR...for a grand total of 27.

      Knowing me though, it's probably going to be lower. :(

        Why are you predicting 7-PS and 10-BS when you scored 11-PS and 14-BS last year?

          naus, ~you're right I am in that situation, I have a weak GPA. So I was trying to bump it up to 34+. Well looks like that isn't going to happen.
          Schauden Freud ~Well when I was taking the test I left 10 questions blank on Physical Sciences. I didn't have time to bubble in and the proctor was literally right next to me. I didn't have time to sneak in some random bubbles for those 10 Qs...hence the 7. As for Verbal Reasoning, I had to leave 2 blank and guess on 3 of the ones I was able to bubble in. And as for Biosci, I am a Bio major so those questions were straightforward, kinda like reading a protocol for benchwork.
          But it has been a difficult time for me, and I think my abilities are slowly deteriorating. And plus, I didn't add up my "projected scores" correctly. Shoulda been a 24!~

            Have you guys tried the examkrackers or Kaplan method? I started using a combination of the two method, and verbal was much easier ever since.


            Same, but I wouldn't say much easier. I had focus problems so making it through an entire test was hard. But for the passages I could focus through, I usually got 1 or none wrong.
