I agree. Definitely ask for your test to be hand scored.

PR wrote the questions, so no, they're not official questions. The questions in this book are TOUGH, so it's great practice.

Several schools are starting to take your highest score, so I would get the PS bible and retake.

Princeton Review does. I don't know about Kaplan.
Some people get test anxiety much more than they do everyday anxiety. But, just because you take meds for it, doesn't mean you'll always have such bad anxiety or that it will limit you in a law career. Part of dealing with anxiety is getting therapy and learning coping skills, so that you either consciously change your reaction to things that make you anxious, or avoid them if that isn't possible. I know someone who took anxiety meds for a while to get through the worst of it, then learned coping skills and gradually tapered off her medicine. I agree that there's a chemical brain component to anxiety, and some people will always need medicine for it, but so what? Some people need to take allergy meds their whole lives. Big deal.

Great advice. When I took the GMAT several years ago, I was relatively new to the area I was living in, and drove out to my testing center in advance. It was very helpful to know exactly how long it took to get there in similar traffic, where it was and what the building looked like. I'd recommend going inside as well to see where in the building the testing room is. It's not always clear, and if you're taking the test at a university, it can be hard to find the room!
