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.

Chihao,

What do you think of Chen Shui-bian? Do you think he practices brinksmanship with the mainland?
