Thank you for using the timer!

There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Thanks to everyone who said congrats or gave me kudos. Now to answer the questions..
Did you prepare any flashcards/notes during your preparation? It would be great if you could share those with the members at GMAT Club. - Were the math questions on the real GMAT similar to those in the GMAT prep/OG? Any advice for us doing well on the math section apart going through OG guides?
I did not make much use of Flash cards. I used Slingfox's notes (thanks slingfox!) for an additional review. I did not prepare notes of my own.
Yes I think the math questions in the GMAT were very similar to GMAT Prep/OG, though just a slight notch harder I felt (maybe because of the stress of exam day). I think in general they are very comparable.
If you dont mind could you please your background? Are you international student, Are you engineer etc...
IS English your native language ?
English is not my native language, but I did grow up learning English, so I guess you could say it is a strong second language. I grew up in an English speaking country in Asia. I think my comfort with English helped me in CR and RC but SC needed serious help. In terms of other background, I work in finance.
I think u r basically 700+ person. That is the reason you have never got below 700+ in CAT
Thanks for the compliment, but that's not entirely true. In my diagnostic/early tests, I got about 600+. It was the Manhattan GMAT books and OG practice that caused the improvement.
Could you tell us how much did you score on Knewton test?
I think Knewton score was 770.
Did you find that you mastered everything MGMAT was able to throw at you or were there some topics that just did not stick...even at the end?
I was able to follow everything on the MGMAT while I was reading it, but I wouldn't call it 'mastered'. I still got many questions wrong, and had trouble remembering all the concepts at the end of it. I think the second read helped, and practicing with questions helped.
