Verbal: 440
Quantitative: 730

I registered for the exam a month ago and intended to study for it (books, vocabulary flash cards, etc), but didn't spend as much time as I intended and did horribly on verbal (quant. isn't so hot, either).

Should I retake it again before they change it this August?

What is your subject field? If you are planning to go to a grad school in math, physics, or possibly chemistry, your general GRE scores don't matter that much as long as the rest of your application looks good; general GRE is more of a formality in these subjects.

Different story for the subject GRE though; that's the exam that you actually want to do well.

See post #8 on here (if you are planning to go to a grad school in physics): https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=284463&highlight=Physics+Grad+School

I plan on going to grad school for physics. Thanks for your input and the link. It was very informative.
I hope to take the Physics GRE later this year or next year.
