Pointers for taking it? I didn't exactly study but I did familiarize myself with the format so at least I know exactly what to expect going into the exam so there were no surprises. I did best on the two timed essay portions, and was about even in the math and verbal portions of the test. Take advantage of your ability to navigate the exam and skip over any questions you don't know the answer to initially. Then, when the timer for that particular section gets low, go back and fill in answers after you can narrow it down to 2-3 choices that you think may be right. Also, use the scrap paper they provide and research some tips and tactics online to better your score.

the essays are surprisingly esoteric. all the examples i'd read were significantly less vague than the ones i encountered on the actual test. they don't really give you anything to go on... just a one-liner like "Nature versus Nurture" and it's up to you do develop where you want to go with it structurally.
