    I read a while ago (Dec 2010) that you should aim for upwards of 550 for verbal and 700 for Quantitative, I'm not sure if this still stands but it is a good starting point

    It's nothing more advanced than what you studied when you were 15, just review those topics on any GCSE revision website. A competitive score is entirely dependent on the school and the program. But if you insist on having a study guide get the princeton GRE one. I never looked at the math section, but the verbal section was decent.

    Do you mean the GRE Subject Test in Mathematics, or the GRE General Quantitative test?

    The first one is very tough, advanced and tricky; but considering you getting a high score, it can itself grant you admissions to top (US, UK or worldwide) universities in relevant courses (Computing, Maths) without academic excellence.

    The second one is below A-Level, and needs practice for speed and accuracy. Nothing complicated at all. Keep in mind that from August 2011 the GRE General test is gonna get revised, and there will be changes to the test.

    I meant the first one.

    I have good GPA and good TOEFL scores. But u see I am an international applicant, so my application has to be stronger, esp. I am applying for Masters in BME. I am worried about my recommendation letters since I honestly feel that they are slacky professors from the univ i did my undergrad in. secondly, i need to have a competitive score in GRE test and GRE Math Subject test.

    Hence I need to take alteast 1 subject test.

    Do u have any links or e-books for this subject ? Any help is most welcomed.

    I'm planning to take the Subject Math test in the summer as well, as I really "need" to go to a top US university in California. I'm planning to do a GRE General and Math Subject test in the summer, and a GRE Computer Science subject test in November, to ensure a place in a top US university for PhD.

    I haven't searched for it yet, ETS sells some stuff and there are mock exam question on their website. We should be in touch for exchanging info during the summer.
