Well, it's over!

I don't mean to sound arrogant, but I was slightly dissapointed in my score when I saw it. I had been in the 740-760 range on GMAT prep and the 720-730 range on MGMAT. My verbal slipped from practice to the real thing, the Q score was about the same. I don't know why, but the verbal seemed harder on the actual test than the prep. Do I have plans to retest to shoot for the 750? Absolutely not! I will heed to the advice given by many that your time is better spent on your essays once you hit the 700 mark.

As far as the prep, here is what I used:

MGMAT
gmatclub tests
kaplan 800 tests
GMATprep
OG 12th edition
OG Quant Review
Kaplan GMAT 2010 edition

I have to say, the test makers seem to be getting more creative with the quant questions. I encountered a couple question types that I had basically never seen before in all my prep. Not that the math was more complicated, just the question type itself. Rest assured, however, if you do the 25 gmatclub tests you will have trained your brain to look for the pattern necessary to solve. I cannot stress it enough- gmatclub tests.

On to the next phase...

Congratulations! This is a great score!
No, don't retake. Not worth wasting the time and half the time people get even less - too much risk taking into consideration R1 is around the corner.

Good luck with essays and don't look back!

jackhrobbins,

Congratulations - 720 - is a great score.

I encountered a couple question types that I had basically never seen before in all my prep.

Can you tell us a little bit more (within the legal limits of course) what you mean by new question types? (e.g - Area of a hexagon kind of questions or...)

As far as new question types, I did see a couple geometry related questions that looked unusual. So yes, I would brush up on the geometry if you haven't already. Like I said though, I think the gmatclub tests really assisted me. I had taken the GMAT once prior, and scored 44 on quant. I got to a 48 due to those tests. Of course, I scored a 47 on verbal last time! But the difference between a 47 and a 41 is less than you think (98 percentile vs 92 percentile). In other words, I think a 48 vs 44 on quant is a bigger gap than a 47 vs 41 on verbal.

I took it in 2004, 44 Q 47 V...730.

Although many are claiming the test has gotten harder in the last 6 years. I would tend to agree.
