Thank you for using the timer!

There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I'm a 710 retaking. I got a 48/39 last time. My strategy studying these past 4 weeks has been to get SC down (I did all SC1000).
I have also done 13 challenges, and my scores have been better than they were last time.
Last week, in two different sittings, I took Powerprep 1, and got 49 M and 44 V. I did see some verbal repeats, so I didn't get too excited.
Well this morning, i got up at 6:30, and did gmat prep 1 at 8 am. I did essays, math, verbal, everything with accurate breaks. I will take test at 8 am on Saturday, so I wanted to mimic conditions exactly. Well I saw no math repeats and only two verbal repeats (which i gave some answer as before).
I got 47 M and 44 V. For 730.
So im generally pretty excited. I feel math score was due to being tired (and i will practice more the next 4 wknds), but the verbal i think is clearly showing difference. Since ive really gotten SC down, its also giving me more time on RC and CR; which my extension has improved my efforts there.
That said, Im getting real hopeful now that an actual 49M 42-44V is possible, and a 750+ is realistic.
Hello Irish Spring, Well done on your GMAT prep scores. I am in a similar boat trying to not get caught between being too optimistic or confident and downright stresses about the exam. I would say at this point gauge your weaknesses, i have been told that focussing on idioms is a gr8 way of increasing your score on verbal, also just doing quant section on the prep will give you harder questions and this will help you increase your quant score. Good luck in your prep. You can never aim too high!!!
