I finally took my exam today. Needless to say, I was thoroughly pleased to see the score.

(pardon the laconicity of my sentences, i m keying in in-between my experiments)

Summary of my prep:
1. Scattered studies during July and August
2. 3 months (Sept, Oct, Nov) of break. Actually, I m a grad student and had my semester which means courses and research work.
3. Got done with my term in first week of december, dared to register immediately and took the date (3rd Jan). That instilled some discipline in my preparation. Also, I took advantage of winter break (no courses, low research productivity) and used all my time for GMAT preparation. Last 20 days counted a lot.

Practice test scores:
GMATPrep1 : 770 (13 days before exam)
2: 760 (10 days before exam)

Princeton (I took these in summer): 730, 710, 680 (not in that order)
Kaplan (this is the first thing i did, early summer. I WOULD NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL): 640, 620, 610, 590.

Being in school and in an active research environment, I could forego on quant preparation. Moreover, I also scored 50 in every Quant section. I just solved the practice tests and occassionally visited the MATH forum.

I took GRE sometime back. So was familiar with CR, RC. I just had to work on SC. Manhattan and OG were my main sources. I pored over OG's explanation thrice.

Well thats about it! Happy to answer specific queries. General comments: same as those of others (sorry, too pressed for time, but as I said, i ll be happy to answer specific queries.)

best,
parsifal

...and the bar moves that much higher! I swear you'll need an 850 to impress anyone on this forum a year from now!

congratulations!

Ha ha. I should send out my applications before there is a deluge of high scores and mine looks just an ordinary (just saw the other guy getting 790)

sonibubu:
Technique for RC: RC has traditionally been my nemesis. While studying for GRE, I got frustrated to the point that I thought I m dyslexic . In GMAT, I would spend extra time on RC questions, recovering the lost time in SC. I would read the passage very carefully the first time, spending a lot of time. Upon reading the question, I would know which paragraph to look for answer.
During practice, out of 13 RC questions, I would get 1-3 incorrect.
CR: I guess I inherited the practice from GRE.

Hi Tarmac,
Yup! 770 with a V44
Dunno how it works! The %iles are: Q95, V97, Overall 99

by the way, I must thank you for the thread that you started, indicating your score and game-plan. that was a morale booster
Are you planning to apply for the programs that begin in AU2008? Have you decided on the schools?

Thanks! Yep, because I am so late, I am only going to apply to a few top flight schools for R3 just to see if I get in, probably LBS, HBS, Stanford and maybe one more. If I don't get into any, I will just do normal R1 with plenty of time next year and to more schools, which might work out better if I get scholarships.

Oh the one thing about GMAT scores, once you get a decent score, don't question it and never look back. It's like playing blackjack and splitting aces 6 times and winning, it's time to stand up and cash out

I m sure you can just walk-in into any B-school, possibly get a red-carpet welcome, considering your score and work-ex (i surmise from your previous posts in your thread that you have ample work-ex)
My experience is limited (5 years), with most of it being in Research. Dunno how much that counts.
