Link to your GMAT debrief: Well, I really don't have enough to say, so I would just type it here. MGMAT really gave me too much overconfidence in verbal; I was scoring almost 95-99% in the last few tests. So the GMAT score was a shocker. I didn't spend any time preparing for AWA, just saw a few templates. If your critical reasoning skills are strong enough, and you know how to express your ideas, do not waste time practicing for AWA. Quants is manageable, though I could have scored higher if I had managed my time better. For the last few questions, I was literally biting my nails as the clock was ticking. That's all. PM me if you need to discuss any strategy. I think there are some pretty awesome write-ups here so I'll just STFU ;-)

Super pumped so I had to post this. Somehow skyrocketed from 650 in practice tests to 710 over the past couple of days. Then hit exactly the same score for the actual GMAT. Took most of the GMAT Club Tests and after trying those the actual GMAT was much easier. Whew! It's over!

770 (Q 51, V 42)
yes! another Indian Male Engineer (IME) :|

scary time...think i messed up the first one in quant, otherwise remember missing out on one more question, still can not get that answer. here's my 2 cents, hope this helps (at least a few more IMEs, man we are the darn unlucky bunch...have to fight for everything :( )

1. entire quant is easy! even if i did not know a formula, can work out from basics.
2. avoid slipping into CAT mode...time is unlikely to be a constraint!
3. i had 75 mins, no one would care if I completed in 50
3. i took 74 mins, and did every addition (even 79 + 65) on paper, read the question again, and verified every answer!
4. i desperately needed a 50+ in quant to breach 750! gosh, this was a test of patience
5. i had to save my energy for the verbal section,

Verbal
1. hate myself for the SC mistakes! last 4 practice tests i had made a mess of the simple questions (the company... are... kinda) and that continued even today! definitely...[i]made a mistake in so...as..eeeeek![/i]

mistake - in preparation itself. highly recommend Manhattan + OG, simultaneously. Even if you remember every rule in MG, it's difficult to apply those rules in an exam setting!...read MG SC, refer to the specific questions in OG and solve them, scrutinize them (even the ones you get right), and make notes...

for heaven's sake pl stop casually written e-mails, ym/Gtalk, blackberry messenger. and STOP reading blogs!!! GMAT does not give a damn to humor! shun literature and beauty, GMAT english is an algorithm (except for some arcane rhetoric questions)

2. RC - was never a natural strength. practice tests were nothing great! but I did practice like crazy...worked on 25 full length LSAT tests over last - on screen and under time constraints.
highly highly recommend powerscore LSAT RC; especially the passage diagram technique.
second tip - visualize what you read! imagine the molecule that attaches itself to a protein, the protein that swims across the blood stream, the nerve cell with hundred of dendrites ready to accept the molecule...
after the passage step back, and collate thoughts...will save immense time in main point, tone, and other overall inference questions

3. CR - had to be my savior and indeed it was! am sure i got all of them correct, given the mess i would have made in SC. I think the preparation helped me a lot here:
a. finished CR bible over a span of one month in May
b. wrote 25 LSAT tests in May - June (i.e. approx 1200 questions), loved doing CR and hated myself for every mistake
c. analyzed all mistakes (including those in 10 full length tests) to spot error patterns. was particularly vulnerable to - weaken, assumptions, mimic...
d. convinced myself of these - one and only 1 conclusion exists (most of the time, at least in GMAT); there always exists ONE obvious answer!
e. many times the darn-this-is-stupid-and-obvious" is the true answer. MBT answers are like ... OMG-kya-ch***apa-hain :P

however, the GMAT CR seemed exceptionally easy (scared the hell out of me!) and in not a single one i had to re-read the options! inshallah...CR eventually became an ego fight!

on the hindsight, what I think I did right:
1. basic reading to develop the fundamentals of CR; do not have a natural talent in CR. read the bible in between the lines
2.did not get into the nonsense of test-series i.e. write, see score, skim over, create a discussion thread in a forum, and forget! does not help in improving!!!
3.Umpteen practice and (more important) analysis of every mistake in RC and CR. 60 min analysis for a 120 min test. can remember most of the RC and CR mistakes
4.LSAT! LSAT! LAST! the tests did rip me apart! this test format is just too good (love this format as much as I loved jee and olympiads! it just exposes the fundamental flaws of our cramming based education system...no doubt, we produce pathetic diplomats (now jump to weakening this one :))
6. Quant - no ego! stay focused on a 50+ and save energy
7. flashcard - prepared, often repeating the same topic, around 300 of them...200 for SC, 50 each for CR and RC. counting the # cards related to a particular mistake in CR, helped a lot

what could have been better:
1. did not follow a structured SC practice...developing my own algo to solve! verb-->pronoun-->modifier-->read vertical-->meaning change...
kinda never liked SC...that was the mistake
2. RC - read the LSAT bible a tad too late. could not apply the principles in practice. Manhattan is good but assumes a natural reading efficiency... can not help a 37-38 breach the 44 mark. the LSAT bible can...
flipkart takes 21 days to ship this book...i ordered it too late
3. started practice test a tad too late...10 tests in the last 14 days, not right
4. flashcards were not stacked in an organized way; so could not refer to all of them in the last few days

btw, i really envy the 2012 test takers...integrated reasoning ROCKS, it just does! kudos to GMAC for including this section...it has everything...RC, CR, logic games (more reason to follow LSAT :)), data interpretation!!! thoroughly enjoyed the IR experimental section (though was concerned about my SC performance)...!!

am contemplating writing the LSAT! the logic games section is so enticing!!! but have to see it the midst of my schedule; am sure 'll never go to a law school...

next...can post my test progress (manhattan 6+ kaplan 4)...if anyone found this post useful.

p.s. i wrote this post in a rush (going out for evening drinks). request a pardon from the die-hard SC enthusiasts for the language and construction errors (including those in the p.s.)
