hey mainhoon, I just finished the test today. I have the same split, but my score is 720 (Q50, V37). 10 points more than you

ok.. thanks, this one from GMAC does not make sense to me. minimal increment in score is 10 and one can get 2 different scores with the same split? well makes me wonder even more if worth retaking.

Flashback Background V Prep & Info - I saw on these forums MGMT SC and Powerscore CR highly recommended. Accordingly I bought both. I only read the MGMT SC book. People say it is the bible, honestly though I did not find the material well organized. I used Aristotle's SC Grail (very very useful) and this one other resource the 200 or so GMAT Prep SC questions list - that links to the questions on the MGMT SC forum - extremely extremely useful. For my SC prep, I just read through those 200 Qns and their explanations (Ron Purewal is God) + Aristotle SC Grail + Glanced through MGMT SC. I did NO preparation for RC or CR. Honestly here is my take on these 2. If you think about it, for RC and CR, the answers are right there, right on the screen - you just need to think and find out. So I am not sure if any "strategy" for these makes senses (did not for me though). So what I did do - was to read CR and RC from the OG (and I can say that the real thing is very similar to the ones in OG) - and that should be enough, really enough. You cannot be tricked too much in CR and RC. SC - a whole different ball game. I am pretty sure that I got lost in SC as I always could narrow down the answers to 2 choices and I must have picked the wrong one most of the time. Well the RCs and CRs I was very confident of in the answers, but SCs are tough in the real thing. Also unlike Q, I really don't know of a good strategy for time management in V. Obviously the kind of questions are different and you get thrown a RC, CR or SC at any time, so I can't think of a good strategy. One that worked for me in the tests is to make sure that you are not off by 5 mins when you take the difference between the time remaining and 2 x no of questions remaining. No scientific analysis, just experience. The other thing you need to note is that unlike Q, where you do not have to glance at the screen for 75 mins (you read the question and get down to working it out), the V requires you to stare at the screen for 75 minutes, and that can be draining - I sometimes feel if they had V before Q, may help! I would say if one focuses on SC - one can do well in V, the RC and CR will come to you. The SC is where you NEED TO KNOW the rules. The SC is unforgiving.

Agree, except for 1 thing: you don't need much practice in RC and CR because you are Native. But for most of us diiferent rules apply.

Have you seen the "1000SC" document? People think that this is a good practice, but some consider it irrelevant.

Actually what is native? I am from india, is that considered native? Well you can practice rc and cr, what I was saying is that I am not confident there are any well defined strategies for them though..

I thought you live in US, and if you have been living there or in other English speaking country for a long time, I would consider you Native (less Native but still Native anyway).

Congrats mate!
Great score!

Once I observed a difference of 20 points with the same raw scores.

Look, does redbull help to concentrate? I did not use it extensively before and I am wondering does it really help?
I have heard other rumors that after first 15-20 minutes, one may feel tired and fagged.
