The last time I took the test was in Jan of 05. I've since gone on to other things and given up on B school for a while. I'm thinking of trying it one more time. I heard that the company administering the test was changing. Aside from that, is there anything else I should know?

I honestly think the verbal has changed in some fashion
I used to score 45+ on the old software and every single other verbal test I had back then. However, I was only able to score 40 on the real exam and on the new GMATPREP. I am not sure if the difficulty changed or the algorithim changed...but I honestly think something has changed

The test gets more difficult each month. I took it in August and at that time, Gprep was very close to the real test.

RC's are shorter, but the questions are more difficult.

CRs are a lot tougher.

SCs are about the same.

Math is way more difficult.

I had no problem with verbal, and scored in the 97th % without ever studying for it, so I'm afriad to try and mess myself up by doing anything with that.

The math I struggled with beyond belief. You can read my post test report from way back, but basically I got a kaplan tutor, went through all their stuff, did the OG as well as the Princeton guide, but still did terrible on the math section.

What is more difficult about it now? My weakest area was geometry, but I also had a lot of trouble with the more advanced DS questions of every type.
