Get a copy of the Kaplan GMAT800 and study the SC tips religously. Then read as many verbal posts (both SC and CR) as you can in the forum. Go as far back into the archives as possible... Take a piece of cardboard and cover the bottom of your PC screen so that your eye doesn`t automatically read the first person`s answer below. Be sure to keep an error log, and copy and paste difficult problems into a folder that you can later printout and use as flashcards the week before the test. This should pump your V score up 5-7 points. Good luck!

Is barrons a good study guide for math ?? or should i look into another book also. Thanks for your advice about the GMAT 800. I will go and buy one of those today.

I am looking into applying for the Masters in Professional Accounting program at UT Austin and couple of other schools in the state of texas. Is there someone on this forum who you know, who is a UT student or Alumni. I just need to know what is a competitive GMAT score to secure a spot.

Are the practice tests harder than the real GMAT ? or is that just a myth ?
I havent fared very well on the practice tests. lower 600, and some high 500s ..i wish to push this upto atleast a high 600s before the test date.
