verbal really tough?

    I took the GMAT test last week and got a 560 (Q:47, V:21). The test turned out to be much more difficult than any of the practice tests i took.

    What shocked me was my verbal score (I thought I had reasonably done well on this section). The 21 I got was around 12-14 points lower than my GMAT preps.

    Now I am really scared to take this test again. What's the best way out for verbal.

    i took the test second time last week and i got same score as yours...560, Q47 and V21...i have lost hopes..i did my best to improve verbal , always got 34 in the prep tests and landed up with 21 . i had given the exam very patiently and reading each and tried to answer each answer correctly..i have no clue what made my score go to 21..
