Even though this is my first post in the group, I have been following the forums for couple of weeks now. I just wanted to share my experience with everyone else as this is the purpose of the forum.
I took the GMAT last year and scored a 660 (Q47, V34). I applied to couple TOP 10 universities hoping that my GPA and essays would help me to get in but it did not happen.
So, I took it again today for the second time and get the 700 score.
I studied for 3 weeks, and took the last Friday off from work. I worked 2 hours at evenings and 4-5 hours during weekend. I just studied little hard last Friday and stopped studying on Saturday (after taking the GMAT Prep and going over the incorrect answers) I peeked for half an hour to the Official Guide in the morning of the exam.
GMAT Prep I= 660 (1 week before the exam)
GMAT Prep II = 700. (2 days before the exam)
I had various books when I first started but just used the official guides after reading the forums and finding some mistakes on the books.

I am not planning to retake the exam because it is really exhausting and I think that I have a legitimate shot on the schools that I am planning on applying.
I believe that GMAT is behind me now and I will start focusing on the essays for the schools.
