hey, buddy, you must be very industrious and goal oriented, but besides studying regular verbal gmat materials try to put some more efforts on basics of English grammar. You might already noticed that Cliffs TOEFL is widely recommended here on this site. I studied it myself - compact and to the point.

I will continue playing as long as the game lasts.
I will continue playing until the game ends.

He will work as long as he's employed.
He will work until he's fired.

She will marry Tom as long as he is faithful to her.
She will marry tom until he sleeps with someone else.

Make sense?
