Dear All
here is my embarrasing story
Started my prep - 01-Jun-13
Exam date - 07-Aug-13

Books / material used - All MGMAT guides, OG13
CATs - GPrep1 (620), MGMAT 1 (640), MGMAT 2 (650), GPrep2 (690)
Actual GMAT - 560

After reading the experience of many fellows out here, I was quite confident to clear the exam with score of 680+, but all logic / learnings fell apart when I saw 560 (Q-43,V-23) on my screen. I could not believe this for a while, hoping to see the refined score on next screen , but I had to accept the truth.

First of all, this experience is forcing me to believe that GPrep is not at all a true (or near to true) indicator of your actual score. One week before the actual exam, I took GPrep (G49, V36) and during last 1 week i did few practice Qs from OG and revisitied the notes. I am thinking I made a mistake by changing my strategy a bit during last week - I decided to spend list more time on first and last 10 Qs in Quant and Verbal. I will do some more brain storming and try to share if I get any good learning, though till now my gut feeling is suggesting to go ahead and try the test again without any much study.

Any suggestions from you guys would be really appreciated.
