Just came back from taking the GMAT and I'm a little shocked with my score - 680 V36 Q47.
I'm mostly just shocked at Verbal score. I have never scored below 40 in any exam and this just came as a huge blow. I took the Economist
GMAT tutor course and here are my scores.

- Free CAT - V44 (Wednesday - 26th June)
I went to the exam feeling super confident. I slept well, I had went for a little run, had a great breakfast, listened to some music, did some math calc to warm up my brain. I checked in at the center in Chicago downtown, and the Pearson people were super nice. The AWA section and the IR section felt relatively easy and I thought I was ready for the Quant and Verbal.
My math scores have been in the range of 45-48 and I was not surprised with the 47. I even timed out on the very last question. So I'm really surprised at the Verbal score. Granted, at the break after the quant section, I was pissed off at timing out and was thinking about whether to re-take the exam. But I cleared my head and was ready to ace the verbal section. I found the verbal section difficult - Usually I finish with 10-15 minutes remaining. Today I finished with 1 minute remaining. I found the questions gently getting more difficult and I thought this meant that I was getting previous ones correctly and I'm now moving into the really difficult territory.
I'm even thinking of calling GMAC to dispute the verbal score. I just simply cannot believe that I would mess up so much. I've always considered verbal my strong suit.
I couldn't find any recent postings regarding disputing the scores, and I'm wondering whether you guys had any thoughts, suggestions, any anything else in between. All told I think I'll have to deal with the GMAT again
