I promised myself that I will post my experience no matter the result. I am happy to report that I scored 700 (47Q, 39V).
I ordered my OG a year back in Sept 2005 and I didn't have a very solid study schedule. That hurt me very much because I became very stressed and I didn't know how to approach this test. In the last 1.5 month I became so tired of thinking about it that I paid the fee and scheduled my exam.
I had the honor to 'meet' a lot of intelligent and hard working people on this forum, and although I haven't been an active member I watched the evolution and the results of several members.
I think it was easier than the GMAT Prep. Math became very, very easy towards the end of the section and I really thought that I wasn't doing very well. Verbal was decent and the difficulty level remained steady.
I was praying for 640 but I was lucky enough to get 700.
My study books:
OG 11
GMAT 800
Kalpan
Princeton Verbal and Math Workbook
I didn't have any standard deviation, combinations, permutations, probabilities. Just plain math.
Verbal was also easier compared to GMAT Prep.
I don't know if I was lucky or just very relaxed but I am happy with the result.
Last night I got home from work around 4.30 and I had a nap for 3 hours. I went out for dinner, came back and got another 10 hours of sleep. I felt very tired and I wasn't sure if I'm going to do well. But I told myself that I have to try and if I'm going to fail I will try again.
Good luck to all of you and take it easy.
The advice that helped me most: SET THE DATE!!!!!!
and also have a Red Bull between math and verbal

congrats mary_m, looks like today was a rather postive day for a couple of other test takers as well! It's nice to hit that '7' mark - and here's wishing you success in your admissions preparation!

(oh - you might also want to edit your subject line to add your score so people know about it at first glance)

Congratulations Mary! Outstanding score

As for the red bull, I'm gonna tuck one away in the locker between the two sections.

Thanx!

Good job. I hope to get that on the retake.
I will make sure I am well rested this time.
I was so tired during quant I couldn't think clearly
