You are very right.. MGMAT guides are the bibles for gmat preparation.. For critical reasoning .. MGMAT strategy didnt worked for me.. Reading Comprehension.. GIN's guide is superb.. :-D
Ofcourse.. all these are best only with very good practice

Hussain my friend - I am wishing the very best to you from all my heart. You have worked hard and have shown immense dedication in the face of difficult circumstances. And you've managed a great score!!! Please accept my wishes and I hope to see you in some business school or other. Please keep us posted of your success. Which schools are you applying to? Are you planning to apply to the IIM's Ex Ed program? I for one have applied to IIM Ahemedabad's executive mba starting on april 19th 2011. Let me know if I can be of any assistance to you.

Regards
Saurabh

Congrats....mate and best of luck for your application
I love your post
You only talked about the Quants throughout I mean 700+ question but in that case you didn't mention anything about 700+ questions for Verbal.....
Can you throw some light on this as well..... :-)

For advanced verbal questions, I think GMAC is the best source to rely on. For this purpose, one should go through every bit of verbal problems available from GMAC. There is powerprep, OG, VG, paper tests & above all gmatprep. You can also use the tag list function at this forum to find the hard verbal pool of questions.
