I am sure a lot of people have asked similar questions. Sorry to repeat this.
How did you study for the verbal section, what did you find particularly useful and what did you find was not as efficient? Did you really have to memorize 3500 words?
I am using the 10 real sat. However, i find my scores to be very in consistent. sometimes ill get 2 wrong in a section, while other times i get up to 6 wrongs......

Someone mentioned to me that memorizing a set of new/difficult prefixes to words used on the SAT would be helpful. Does anyone know where I can find such a list?

You could try Barron's. I'm sure Hot Words for the SAT also has it.

I got the Kaplan's Verbal Workbook. I used the vocabulary in the back... crossed out the words I did know, and made flashcards for a lot of the rest. I studied them religiously for a few weeks as well.
Jumped from a 670 to a 760 in one month.

Unfortunately, memorizing words is pretty much the only way to boost your verbal score. Memorizing root words can be misleading, and they only give you an idea for what the word means. But it could be positive or negative. Anyway, memorizing words helped my score a lot. I used Gruber and the Burchers dictionaries, and memorized every single word in them. Later, if my analogy score isn't perfect, I'll take a crack at the Barron's dictionary
