Got 720 with a 99 percentile in quants. Verbal was a bit low...77 percentile.
My powerprep scores were - 740 and 720
Princeton Review website, i registered with a book i got - 700 with target of 750, 610 with target of 800, 720 with target of 750 and 710 with target of 800.
CD 2003 - 650 and 670.
Peterson - 3 tests - 700-740 in one, 740-760 in another and 670-690 in the last.
800score's 5 verbal and 5 quants - Verbal average was 43-44 and quants average was 50.
Now for the material i used -
Started with Princeton Cracking the GMAT
then moved on to Kaplan
2003 CD and then to Barron's GMAT. Meanwhile started taking tests. Test on princeton's website and then Barron's test.
After that had a break cause i got GMAT dates two and a half months later. I started again with 800score's material. Then did the Powerprep CD. From here on - i started identifying my weak areas. Then i moved on to Kaplan 800
about 1.5 months before the test. About 20 days before the test I was through with Kaplan 800
and then started looking for material on this great site and few other yahoo groups. Solved a few questions of gmatplus.
About 14 days before the test i started the OG - Official Guide. About last 100 questions of SC, RC and CR. Believe me- this is the best resource. If one can repeat all the questions of OG [b]internalizing[/b] the errors - one has to get above 700. I guess - i really missed out on spending enough time on OG. Else could have reached 750.
So thats it...any questions are welcome.
Day before the test i took a Peterson's test and on the day of test - i revised the Kaplan 800
and crammed an AWA template.
Test Exp - I got easy topics on both AOI and AOA questions. Then i moved on to quants. Quants has been always very easy for me and this was no exception. Only standard deviation questions were tough and a few questions here and there. One needs to be careful not to make silly mistakes.
Verbal - This is where i lost it a bit. I got a seat near the door and it kept banging all the while - so many student leaving and coming in. I got only one bold faced CR and was easy. Sentence correction was a bit tough with questions on participles. RC i had 3 small passages and 1 real huge passage with even the questions being lengthy.
To be or not to be....
