Congrats.

Could you please share your study plan and the list of books that you used? It would be very very helpful.

Thanks much.

Thanks everyone, I appreciate the comments. I'm not applying to business school for a little while, but I hope things turn out well for everyone applying this year (R2 and R3).

kaptain - I actually know someone who got a 50Q/45V and earned a 770. I guess there's a small bit of variance between your two subset scores and your actual score. I don't mind all that much since I'm satisfied with my score. If, however, my 51Q/44V ended up being 650 or something like that, then I'd feel a little cheated knowing the subscore breakdowns of several other people.

dkGmat - I don't know the exact word counts for my essays but I would say they were on the long side. For both essays, i wrote about 3 sentences in the intro, 4-6 sentences in each of three body paragraphs, and 3 sentences for the conclusion. I strongly suggest writing 5-paragraph essays if you can help it, instead of 4-paragraph essays.

JoyLibs - my study plan basically included both GMAT preps, both taken twice, some kaplan tests (which I basically ignored), a PR practice test, and GMAT powerprep. I studied for maybe 5 or 6 weeks prior to my exam, between 5-10 hours a week.

Thank you for the wonderful debrief with the suggested tips. It would be interesting to know what books you used apart from the tests for preparation.

Congratulations and it was a great help reading your post. I am about to embark on my GMAT prep and will follow the points that you mentioned so I get into a good habit from the beginning, rather than try to fix it later...

If possible, can you help me out by replying to my post at:

Hi,

Congrats on a wonderful score!
I am no way near to scoring such a stellar grade, however I will be happy if I get up to 680+ range. My main issue is: Timing.
Any suggestions on how to improve on timing?? I can answer a question in 3min which is obviously not going to get me anywhere during the real GMAT.
Got a stop watch and I'm trying to time myself. But what do you do when you get kind of panick during a CAT/real exam? Then I guess randomly and ruin my score very well.

I agree with your suggestion of reading the entire RC passage. I tried the short cut and it does not work. I would say to other GMAT aspirants to spend the time to read the passage "calmly" and in a "focussed way" and then answering questions will be easier and would take less time.
Yes, while reading you'll feel like the time drill machine is putting holes in your brain.... lol... but thats the only way to do it.

Again, your score is awesome. Just reading about how well others score makes me feel happy and keeps me excited towards improving myself.
Good luck. Amber
