I know these posts have already gone up on the forum and many people have answered it but I am still going to ask. I just gave a pre-test by Princeton Review and the score was miserable...It was a 490 ( Verbal-22 and Quant-37). I would really really like to improve this score and get in the high score range sometime.
So would highly appreciate any advice from anyone of you guys!!! Seriously need help that's why asking . .

The best way to get your verbal up is to read for at least 30 minutes every night. Pick up a copy of the Economist or any classic book. I highly advise reading the book Arguably by Christopher Hitchens for the month leading up to your test. It will sharpen your brain in SC, RC, and especially CR.
