I took the GRE a while ago when the now outdated method of scoring was in use. I scored a 1410. My GRE has since expired and I need to take it again. Additionally, I need scholarships. I'm broke. I have a crummy job, and there is no way I can go back to school without crushing the GRE again... hopefully better than I did the first time.

I'm a little worried that if I study and spend all of that time I can't earn a better score. I have been busy, haven't read a book since college... I'm worried that I've been dumbed-down and that I should just avoid this all together. Any insights?
