Congrats!

So you basically attribute the 5 point increase in Q to the GMAT Club Tests? Was there anything else that you did, or did you just go through the GMAT Club Tests the second time? How many times did you revise them and how did you study them?

Congrats!

Any tips on trying to calm nerves the day before the test? I've got mine coming up this Saturday and sometimes have the anxiety issues you are talking about. I've been scoring above 700 on the GMAT Preps so I think I'm in a good position to knock it out of the park.

i just took my gmat today, unofficial score=680 (46 quant, 36 v) The quant is around my average quant, but the verbal is quite possibly the lowest i've ever gotten. Needless to say I'm really dissapointed, I'm really happy to read your story, and i hope in a month's time I can accomplish the same. Do you have any advice for gaining some consistency in verbal and math? my scores sometimes seem to swing +/- 4 in both directions on both sections. which is the difference between a 680 and a 730...

Out of curiosity, which school has a guideline of 75 percentile for each test?

I used your plan as a guideline and it paid off big time. 690 -> 750 in six weeks! Thanks!
