I wrote a few days ago and scored a 720. If you score 680 and above DO NOT REWRITE. There is no difference between a 680 and a 750. >680 means that you can handle the workload and intensity of an MBA program.

My 2 cents worth :

I started prepping for the GMAT about 8 months ago. A few Qs here and there. Did about 1 hr a week for the first month. Took the next few months off.

Don't waste your time with Kaplan strategies courses etc. Use only the OG. Cram . I did about 2-3 hrs a night for 4 weeks then Wrote. The GMAT is a fitness test. If you leave it too long you will get sloppy. Focus and study for 1 month solid. I felt the Math was just as easy as the OG. Verbal was like taking the toughtest 41 Q from OG. There is no evidence that the Questions get harder. They are the same throughout the test. Don't waste your time with probability. I got one and it was easy. Similar to the OG ones.

Best Strategy
Buy the OG for $35 study for 6 weeks then go write. Then never look back.

My feeling about the GMAT : You have to write it, so do so BUT it is an absolute waste of time and utterly useless. I learnt nothing from it whatsoever - apart that it was a pain in the rear and that I lost valuable time with Family. I'm glad it's over. What a load of crap.

Good luck to everyone else.

Congratulations on the great score!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts about the GMAT, I think most will agree here that the GMAT is something one'd like to get done with very quickly!! Anyways, good to hear you emphasise the power of the OG, I'm not using any other material at all, unlike my last attempt and I'm hopping I do better this time around concentrating on the OG way of doing things!

Hey, thanks for your post.
It seems everybody is taking the GMAT.
I like your advice about never looking back - it is so true since GMAT is mostly useless after you took it. I think only people like me can't get over it :lol:

Good score; 700 and up is good.
