Dont remember the exact breakdown, but Q/V scores were almost identical (at 80% each).

Unlike the first time, I was better prepped for the Quant this time around. Using the OG, as well as some problems from GMATClub (esp. the perm/comb guide), I was able to raise my quant score by 25% from the last test. Pretty standard stuff - % change problems, tricky absolute value, tricky mean/median/sd, coordinate geometry. No work , speed, or mixture problems. One easy probability and one very tough combination problem. However, if you KNOW the Official Guide (and not just the answers, but the concepts, and the 'methodology' behind ETS's thinking) then an 80%+ quant for you is definitely do-able.

After the quant section, I read through my scratch paper. I figured I had gotten 8-10 questions wrong (all after the first 10), and thought that probably 1/3 of them were experimental. I knew that, if I did well on verbal, I'd be home free.

Verbal seemed like a joke once again...or so I thought. I was convinced I had only gotten 1-2 questions wrong total for Verbal. But then the score of 660 showed up, with only an 80% in Verbal. I was shocked. To this day I still cannot figure out where I went wrong. I had read that getting a verbal/math question wrong very early on can hurt your score by 50-60 points - and I truly think this happened to me.

My Practice:

PR CAT 1: 650

PR CAT 2: 650

PR CAT 3: 700

PR CAT 4: 690

PR CAT 5: 710

Kaplan 1: 610

I also used the Crack-GMAT math tutorials and exercises, which I thought were great.

I got a 640 the first time around, with a 92% in V and a 57% in Q. I knew I had to boost the quant bigtime, so I did. However, I'm kicking myself for dropping 10+% in verbal.

I'm leaning toward taking it again ASAP. I want to break 700 (I'm targeting the top-10), and feel I'm literally only 2-3 questions away. 660 is in the ballpark, but I want some more insurance.

I've pretty much done all the prep I can do in math - now I need to do some more verbal practice problems.

Any advice? Does 3 times (And hopefully not 4) look bad to the schools?
