Up from 690 the first time around.

Here's how I prepped, for 2-3 hours a day over a 4 weeks period (80-100 hours in total)

1) Bought all 8 Manhattan GMAT books, and covered each of them thoroughly (including online content)
2) Did 1 practice test a week, 2 in the last week
3) focused on the toughest questions ONLY in the GMAT official guide...the rest are a waste of time

Hope it helps!

P-S: I am NOT a native English speaker

congrats on the score?
What was your technique on CR and RC (taking notes, skim then answer, read fully then answer, etc)?

Did you practice all verbal questions or just hard ones?

Ok practice tests: I was scoring 730-770 on the two official GMAT tests, but the old ones.
On the Manhattan GMAT ones, I was scoring much less...but they are very tough on purpose

For RC, you have to do so many questions that you actually get to understand how the people who write them think and the answer they would like to see. I used a simple elimination process.
To be hones,t I have always been good with languages and had a good intuition of grammar rules. I only practiced with the hardest questions (again, thank you MGMAT). Remember, I scored a V43 even the first time around

For me, the gain was really 1) the very hardest verbal questions and 2) the math -- getting quicker and memorize set ways to do the problems, espec probabilities which come up at the 45+ score level.

Hope it helps

M.
