    I took my first practice GRE thus week. Got 55th percentile on quantitative reasoning and 95th on verbal. Its a stunning difference from what I got on standardized tests when I was young. I always did the best on math and reading/language were my worst scores. I think as an adultt, reading comprehension is something you practice constantly. My tutor says I should not do anything to prepare for verbal at the moment and relearn all that middle school math, algebra and geometry which I have long forgotten. It is coming back bit by bit.... He also said I'm unusually motivated .

    I have some old math textbooks and solutions manuals that I am working through. The Wolfram alpha site (free or paid) can also be useful to show step-by-step directions on how to solve problems.

    Also, for the psychology GRE, I am just reading through a couple intro to psych textbooks.
