Kudos for such a good post. I am also in same situation. But today, I give GC Test (free one) and got 29 correct out of 37 i.e. q51. I am planning to give one GC Quant test in alternate days and check the concept for all the wrong answers and for all the correct ans for which I took more than 2 mins.
I think , we just have to prepare our self for the patterns and tricks which GMAT applies using basic concepts
Thanx for the kind words!
In addition to your method of checking concepts for the wrong answers, you may also like to do 20-30 questions on the same concept so that the learned concept is adequately cemented in thought process.
As far as pattern and tricks recognition are concerned, I am totally with you, rather both of them are part of the review on which we are supposed to spend more time. I believe that review is the most valuable part of the gmat learning.
Fire the final bullet only when you are constantly hitting the Bull's eye, till then KEEP PRACTICING.
