I sincerely hope that your score of 690 takes you to your desired program.
I find myself ending in a similar score and hence my writing to you.
I am a retaker(last score being 630, V29,Q47. I have self prepared from MGMAT, Gmatclub and OG this time to improve my verbal to 33/34. Sensing to scale further, I had taken up eGmat
couple of months earlier. Though the course along with its instructors is fantastic, I think, I might land up around 689/690(actually have taken a MGMAT CAT yesterday and scored 660). I have my GMAT date in about 20 days from now.
Alongwith brushing upon concepts taught at eGmat
and striving to apply the wonderful processes for SC, CR & RC, I feel I need to have a timing strategy in place(make some guesses based upon your takt time after having devoted extra time for the first 10/15 questions etc).
It is on the above that I need your suggestion. Did you try to adopt such a strategy whereby you fumbled on the time or was it that you did not apply any strategy at all and treated every question on its merit?
I am sorry if my post is a bit too lengthy as I am slightly confused on the actionable left to maximize my score.
