My 2c.

The Economist. I am in love with that magazine. In my opinion, it is the best business magazine out there. I have been reading it over the last year or so. But my reading has taken on a different mode now - I look at sentence construction and possible CR questions in each article i read.

I find the articles in Businessweek to be a bit light. Not enough content to substantiate some of the articles.

NYTimes - probably rate it 2nd. Competent journalism in the business/tech/science sections. Again I sometimes use the NYTimes as a CR source.

Walker that is a good score. You can definitely score better.

I took the test on 22nd and got 630 Q(47) V(30).

I spent too much time in verifying the answers in quant. Thus, had to guess about 5+ questions in the end. I felt it was possible to score 49-50 as my scores in Prep were mostly 48-50.

On Verbal, CR choices were very abstract than what we see in the forums and Gmat Prep. RCs were also tough. I thought I did well in SC but the result does not prove that

I really need to do a lot of preparation in English before I make the next attempt. I will update you with whatever that helps me improving verbal.

Good luck buddy - remember stay calm - like a monk. Key is to concentrate, not get nervous and not make silly mistakes. You've got the quant covered, make sure you ace it and hit the 51.

Walker,

Best Wishes. Stay cool and alert...Be extremely cautious on the verbal, if possible check twice before you click 'confirm' atleast for the first few...

... less than 3 hours left.

Thank you very much for your support and wishes!!!
I think, even if I do not break 750-level, I have to write a long debrief as I started 7 months ago with a very low score.

Thanks again!
