I bought Barron's and Princeton and scored 170/170/5.5. The new test is a lot easier than the old one, I think. Barron's is more difficult than the actual test but is still okay to practice with. I never scored that well on the verbal sections back when I took the SATs, but the reason I was able to do so well is because the Princeton Review book has several hundred vocab words to study. I took a few days to familiarize myself with the ones I didn't know and many of them showed up on the test.
