I have already been accepted to a great CRNA program that starts Fall '08, but I am going to be re-taking the GRE in the next couple of months to better compete for scholarships
. I took my GRE in late Sept '07. With literally 6 hrs. of study time, on 4.5 hrs. sleep, and after a 2.5 hr. drive I scored a meager V-520, Q-510. Evidently, the obligatory >1000 helped get me in...but I need 1100-1150 to reach scholarship
range at my school (U. of Cincinnati).
Anyone taken the test after the Nov. 2007 changes?
I read somewhere that the short answer/fill in the blank questions are experimental for now and that you may only see one per GRE (or none). I am really hoping that 2 months or so of study time can get me the score I need, any input would be appreciated from folks who re-took the test and scored higher on test #2 (like before and after scores).

You might get one question that is fill in the blank (either verbal or quantitative), but it will not count toward your score. Otherwise, the test has not changed. Good luck!

I used the Kaplan book as well. Very helpful. I also tutored another student on the math section and did a lot better on the math section because of it. Studied vocab every few nights for eight months with little improvement. Before studying, I got a 480 verbal and 660 math. After studying, I got a 520 verbal and 790 math for a 1310 total. Also, I had two full writing sections. One section was the real thing and the other section was for future tests. Only scored a 4.0/6 on those.
