In all agreement to the author,preparation classes are a definite no unless you are someone who is absolutely incapable of focussing or self-learning.
I would try and shed some light on the reading s/c which is a little neglected overall.Most importantly there is an compilation of the topics for both issue and argument portion on the test.Make sure to at least skim through all the topics.One is sure to see a number of topics that are very slightly different from each other, and that cuts the chase down by several hours.
Since I took the test immediately following the changes,there was not much reference material avaialable.The approach I followed was read these topics,segregate them into about 10-15 broad categories,and then write one thoughtful,effort intensive essay on each.Believe me there is enough room to make minor manipulations in these essays and use the rest as it is on the final test.Remember,type these essays and not write them.You will see it helps organise thoughts better,in addition to enhancing your typing abilities (speed+accuracy).Better take this advice,it's coming from someone who scored 6.0 on this s/c
There's ample info avaialble on other s/c so go read elsewhe

a book for etymology of wrods
by bhaskar on Apr 05, 2005 08:06 PM

this is to add one thing abt the article. students preparing for GRE or CAT can read "world power made easy" by Norman Lewis. its a great book and gives you the ability to make out the meaning of a new word that you encounter with. And its very interesting also.
