Just wanted to take this moment to thank all of you for your help in my score. I took the test twice, first score 690, second score 710. I could not have done it without the help from all of you. Thank you for everything, i could not be more thrilled. 700 and above is possible! Work hard, you can make it. Kudos to everyone!

Thanks GMATLA, I really appreciate it.

I'm an engineer, so I figured that the quant section would be easy for me, and I would do "well enough" in the verbal section. Well, I actually didn't do great in the verbal (47, 76%) but I knew that I hadn't done great as soon as the quant section was done. The quant was much harder than expected! But during my break I knew that I would have to do very well in the verbal, and lo and behold I did (41, 92%)

Keep in mind that you can rise above a less than great score in your strength, just don't let it bring you down. If you feel that the quant is weak after the section, just use it as motivation. Once the quant is done, it's done, don't let it bring the rest of your test down.

I wish the rest of you the best of luck, stay focused, work hard, and the score is within your grasp!

Again, thank you to everyone!
