For any of you who have taken the GMAT test more than once did you find yourself more anxious the second or third time around?

I've been scoring between 670-710 on my past 3-4 tests, but somehow I find myself more nervous now than before my last test when I was scoring between 610 and 670 (ended up with a 630). Probably because I am petrified of scoring worse!

And to top it off, work has been very rough these past 3 weeks. So much work, stress, other people on my team are dropping the ball and it's just been very bad timing to happen right when I am in my weeks of final preparation to take the test again (on the 23rd).

Does anyone have any destressing advice? Like, that the GMAT is not the end of the world and it'll all be fine? ;-).

Either way - I wanted to thank you guys for all your help these months. Answering my questions regarding verbal/quant questions, strategy, and just overall suggestions have been so helpful. As I push into this final week of studying and loads of stress, I want to wish you all good luck!

The GMAT is not the end of the world! Seriously it's not. Here is a link to my guide for the last week of the GMAT. I was freaking out and figured if I wrote out what I "knew" I should do. It helped me tremendously and I hope it's helped others. I scored a 650 first time. Studied for 3 months and scored a 720!
