Princeton Review and Kaplan are good sources for verbal strategies.
Vocabulary lists are NOT very effective, especially the "grand dame" of all (Barron's). Lists of 3,500 to 10,000 words are a waste of time.

what area are you weakest in? if it is reading comprehension, read a lot and learn how to analytze nad read critically. analogies- get a book that'll help you BS your way through em ( I need one :-P). sentnece completion- get a book :-P

I have Kaplan's Verbal book and it says that all the words in its vocabulary list have appeared between 5 and 30 times on the SAT so I think memorizing words from Kaplan's would probably help your vocab.
Xiggi: are there any good alternatives to memorizing words besides reading a lot?

do you recommend any books specifically for analogies/sentence completions... my reading comprehension is very good

I have "Up Your Score" - I hear from here that it is a really good book for CR (my main weakness). Can anyone confirm this?

There is a very good wordlist in the Grubber's. Memorize it and you should be fine.
