I took the GMAT this past weekend and scored a 620 (40Q, 35V). My target is 700+. I thought the math was harder than that of any the practice tests I've taken. The GMATPrep wasn't too indicative of my actual score - I scored a 700 (44/41) on GMATPrep. I should be good at math (math/eng background) but for some reason get tricked or flustered by simple questions.

I tend to try to keep each question to ~2 minutes, and I did guess on a few questions that I was running too long on.. Also, I was a bit weak on a few elementary concepts like overlapping sets and statistics. At least I know a few topics I can improve. I've also started on the GMATClub tests and hope to learn many of the GMAT 'tricks' from the club problems.

The verbal seemed similar to OG and GMATPrep. I studied sentence correction, etc. beforehand and didn't think I had missed many questions on the test. However, my score showed differently.

Anyone have any tips for improving my scores? I really dont want to be surprised next time I take the test.

Yea, recently I have come across several test takers complaining about Quant. It has gone tougher. So probably you should look for tougher math problems such as GMAT club challenges and Manhattan CAT tests.
