I just took the GMAT and got a 730 on it. This was something I had been expecting - the very first test I took ( without any preparation) was the official GMATPrep Test and I got a 720 on it. After 3 weeks of intense study, my actual score was only 10 points higher ( not that I am complaining) . According to me , the best indicator of your real score is the GMATPrep test - its places you within a 20 point range of your real score. The books that are a MUST for preparation are : Kaplan 800, the OG and the Manhattan guides. More than reading theory, it is important to give many tests and review them thoroughly - for Verbal, it is necessary to come up with a strategy to answer the questions. I have heard many people say that the Verbal section in the real GMAT is tougher than any of the practice questions that you will ever do - this might be true, but if you have a strategy for tackling the questions, you will be able to solve the questions - no matter how tough they might be.

The breakup was : Quant - 48 and Verbal -44. English is not my first language and I was able to achieve the high verbal score only because I developed my own strategy for solving the questions. In sentence correction, things like parallelism and pronoun use are the most commonly tested concepts. The Manhattan Guides are very good for the Verbal section, especially sentence correction.

I hope this helps, and all the very best to future GMAT test takers!
