I just finished giving my GMAT today morning. Got a score of 770 with a split of Q51,V44. I feel I could have done a little bit better on the verbal side but overall I am happy with the score.
I started my preparation around mid October. I started by giving a Kaplan linear GMAT test ( book based ) to see where I stood and what my weaknesses were. I got a 690 with a poor score in quant and reasonable score in verbal. Within verbal, my SC performance was very bad. So I decided to prepare accordingly.
I had prepared with the following materials:
1) Kaplan Premier - Very good book to start your preparation. Helps you to understand the different problem types and gets you up to the 700 level quite quickly. Helped a lot with refreshing my quant skills. Also provides pretty good online CATs and practice quizzes.
2) Kaplan Advanced/Kaplan 800 - I felt this book was not very worthy - I was expecting more practice material and less theory compared to what the book had
3) Powerscore SC - Was very helpful in getting my sentence correction skills to a higher level. The organization of the book was quite good.
4) OG - As everyone would say, absolutely essential. I spent a long time studying OG and analysing the mistakes I made in the OG problem set
5) GMATprep - I took one practice test a week before the test and got 760 (don't remember the split, forgot to take note). I realized that I am not timing the problems correctly so had to work on that aspect. Took another practice test a day before GMAT (yesterday) and again scored 760 with Q50,v42. I could see that the timing had improved.

I wanted to take Manhattan GMAT test and GMAT Club tests, but due to work pressure and family reasons I couldn't devote enough time.
Things went well today in the actual test and I think I eliminated some silly mistakes that I had made in the practice tests and thats why my score improved in the actual. Am looking forward for some rest now, am planning to apply to B-schools only next year. I have a preference for 1 year MBA courses, so need to plan the applications accordingly.

Sorry about that.. I forgot to take note of the split first time and then only realized that GMATPrep does not remember the scores forever. Only thing I remember is that both quant and verbal were less than 50. I have edited my post accordingly.

Wow! Congrats on the great score.
In your opinion, for a Q51, what is the leeway of no of questions one can get wrong?

@whirlwind, I am not sure if there is an accurate way to predict that. I think it depends on the difficulty level of the questions rather than on the exact number of right/wrong ones. In the practice, I got Q50 with 8 wrong answers. I am sure I made less errors in the actual GMAT.

Got the official score report today. AWA is 4.5/6.0 Very disappointed with the AWA score. Hope it won't affect my admission chances.

With you 770, I am not worried about your AWA 4.5 (which is not that bad anyway).
However, keep in mind that GMAT is not everything, so keep on focusing on the rest of your application...
