OK....Let me take a deep breath. Ha.....So the D-Day is 11/09/09 @ 12 Noon. The real fun now begins. 4 days to go - 96 hours and counting.

Tasks for these last couple of hours are building my confidence, improving my concentration, reducing my stress levels and lastly crossing my fingers.........

This is not parallel in structure!

just kidding!

Good luck with the test, I really hope that you hit your target, I mean not just hit it...hit it so hard that it goes on a orbit around a distant planet, say pluto!

.....oops! pluto's no longer a planet!

Tit for tat.....ha....

Yep, I decided I am going in - It's like a NOW or NEVER......My GMATPrep Exams score are pretty much hanging around 700 - 710 - occasionally spiking to 740.

I will have to do my BEST and Hope for the Best.

Wow.....2 more days to go.....Preparing for the GMAT is one type of art and Controlling the stress and keeping oneself calm is another level or art.

Phew.......Need to relax more......Well I guess I will have stop reading the GMAT debriefs for the next couple of hours. Reading Successful stories make me think what type of debrief should I be posting And reading some of the NOT SO unsuccessful stories make me worry, what will I do if I happen to be in that place.

mrsmarthi, i'm convinced you will do great. do you know why? you scheduled your test on my birthday!

looks like you have the right idea on how to approach the last few days. in addition to this, i read through dozens of inspiring quotes and messages. however, it all boiled down to one short phrase, made famous by nike:

just do it.

I definitely am going to follow your verbal strategy- S.L.O.W. D.O.W.N Even though my average in Verbal is on mid 30's I really wish to have upper 30 in the real deal. Hope this formula will take me to my dream score.

Thanks you for the good wishes........Believe me....the last couple of hours are even more tiring than preparing the exam. Phew......

This Monday, my GMAT story will definitely come to an end.......I am confident that this time around, my score will never be below my first attempt(mere 590). I am much more confident in my verbal preparation. So I am sure I will be close to my target score - magical number of 7XX. All I have to do is keep my anxiety and stress levels low.

I see a strange feeling the last couple days. I just don't feel like reading / preparing anything for GMAT. Is it common?

Well....I think I lost the match again.

My score is 650 with Quant 49 and verbal 29. I went in with an expectation of atleast 680+ and came back with a reality of 650. Anyhow..... GMAT is now done and over.

Now I have to see how best I have to do for my apps......

Thank you all for encouraging me all the way during my preparation. Will try posting a debrief......very soon.
