I took my GMAT yesterday, 20 Aug 2011 and got a score of 620 (Q-46, V-29).

I used MGMAT guides and tests & Kaplan premier 2010 (with CD) for my preparation.
During my practice my score were
MGMAT-1 (Jun 1st week) - 600
MGMAT-2 (Jun 2nd week) - 590
MGMAT-3 (Jun last week) - 610
MGMAT-4 (July last week) - 650
MGMAT-5 (Aug 1st week) - 710
MGMAT-6 (19 Aug) - 680 (took it casually)

Kaplan-1 (May Last week) - 630
Kaplan-2 (july 2nd week) - 650
Kaplan-3 (july 3rd week) - 650
Kaplan-4 (Aug 2nd week) - 680

GMAT prep-1 (Jun 2nd week) - 660
GMAT prep-2 (16th Aug) - 640 (Q50, V-27)

my avg score for Quant = 47-48
my avg score for Verbal = 35-36

I have used 1000 series for all five portions (PS,DS,CR,RC & SC)
Used MGMAT SC guide for SC & CR bible for CR

My target institution is ISB(India) and IIMs(India).

Guys after seeing such score I am broken
I know with this score I head for nowhere

Should I retake the test or prepare my application (I presently serve with Army, will this make a strong profile. But I don't that it will be strong enough to compensate for such a low score.)

and if I should prepare then which all material should I refer to and what should my strategy now.

You need to improve your verbal.

You say your average verbal over practice tests was 35-36. However, note that your final verbal of 29 was very much in line with your GMATPrep verbal of 27 (taken four days before the test). This suggests to me that your "true" level is not 35-36. I think you need to delve into the most recent GMATPrep and analyse where you went wrong in verbal. You used the two best resources, MGMAT SC and CR Bible, but I think you can extract more from these. You need to improve your base and then revist those materials. Perhaps MGMAT's new book "Foundations of GMAT Verbal" could lay the platform. Then you could revisit MGMAT SC and CR Bible. If you can get your verbal truly to 35-36, then with your strong quant you will be pushing 700.

Good luck!

Did you use the OG 12? If you did, I think you could still get more out of it. You should also look into OG Verbal.

In my opinion, the unofficial verbal question stuff you see is subpar. Only use OG verbal material.

Good luck mate!

You didn't use OG material at all??!?!!??! Seriously??

Use OG materials ONLY!!!! After going through 100-200 CR and SC problems, youll get +50 to +100 points like nothing.
