First time poster, long time reader :)

Just got back from my writing today, after spending the last 2 weeks (Christmas/New Year's holiday at that) studying.

I was scheduled to write Dec. 20, but had to re-schedule due to some work committment.

Anyways, an interesting thing that I experienced was that I did NOT get a single probability (permutation or combination) or standard deviation question on the quant section.

I had read that these topics are only visited if one is doing well on the exam, yet I didn't see one (weird...)

Anyways, here are my practice test results (in the same order as I took them):
PR 1: 610
Kaplan: 620
PR 2: 600
PP: 700
PP: 660

As you can see, I was all the map (no idea why), but I guess I did the best during the ACTUAL thing, which counts the most :)

I studied by going through each book one at a time. I started with PR, then the 2 verbal books, and finally Kaplan 800 (pretty much in the order of difficulty). I also did quants first, then verbal since I knew my quants were better.

I did the exercised in the books. After which I did the CD/online tests (in the order I stated above)

Background = Engineering (so the quants were pretty easy, especially the problem solving stuff. I had a little problem with DS, but it's mostly just needing to think clearly and focusing).

Yes, the lack of the probability was definitely weird. I thought I was doing badly due to this fact.

I know I could have studied more and could have done better (I started "studying" like a year ago, but was never serious about it until I booked the test - which I subsequently had to move. So for the last year, I would say, I studied a total of 40-50 hours, and then the last 2 weeks, maybe another 70-80 hours), but I figured this score wouldn't keep me out from any school.

Drop me a note if you need any help. I'll try my best.

However, to be honest, even after getting 85 percentile on verbal, I still feel like I am "guessing" on alot of the questions, especially SC. LOL
