I got 680 in my first attempt. After 3 months of more study (and that includes LSAT materials), I got a 620. It´s true that I had a really bad week (fever, etc.), but I felt confident to get 700+, so I did not cancell the appointment. I finally got a 620 and felt and enormous depression. That was 3 months ago. During this 3 months I have tried not to think very much about the GMAT, and today I feel strong to retake the study and start a new preparation for my third try.

My target is 720+, and have 5 months to go. Today I´m going to plan the study hours, and Im going to try again.

I´ll try to be very active in this forum and looking forward to read your comments and advices to help improve my score.

Thank u all.
-Noboru.

Hey Noboru - what a bummer!!!!
Sorry to hear about the experience. I do feel 680 is a pretty strong score. With GMAT it is similar to Vegas - sometimes need to know when to stop.

your experience is just like mine
1st attempt - 660 Oct, 06
2nd attempt - 560 Sept, 09 (studied hard for 3 months)
I was not able to sleep for nights after this incident. I was constantly getting 670-690 in MGMAT before the test. I don't know what went wrong with me. Kind of blanked out during the test.
