Even before I took my GMAT exam, I had decided that regardless of my result, I would make this post in order to thank everyone on this website.
I'm one of those silent trawlers of GMAT club, the ones who silently read all the interesting debriefs, answer the top questions of the day, etc.
But I would've never been able to achiever what I did without the help of posts from users such as bb, Bunuel, souvik, Tommy Wallach, daagh, chineseburned and so many more users who I have made my unofficial mentors. I know there are plenty more like me who don't post much, but I'm sure we are all very thankful for all the tireless work and effort that has been put into this website. From using @bb's carefully curated compendiums of high difficulty Verbal and Quant questions, to finding @bunuel's precise and logical explanations to answers on all of those tricky quant problems, from Tommy's superb explanations, which always contained helpful example sentences of word usage and meaning, on those head scratching SCs, to chineseburned's now legendary AWA template, I cannot even begin to tell you how big a part of my journey all of you have been.

Thank you all for being such a huge part of my journey. Would never have been able to do it without you. I feel that the least I can do is tell you that there are thousands of others like me who may not be seen or heard much, but are forever in your debt.

PS: Apologies if I forgot to mention your username, but if you've ever had any top posts, I've probably read it and gained much from it.

Hi all, so sorry for the late reply. I've stopped using the website as much after my exam and I just happened to log in to kill time at work

As regards to quant, any post with a reply from Bunuel is pure gold. Not only does he/she answer everything correctly, but the solutions and methods are probably the most time saving and easy to understand. If I had one advice for quant it would be, see as many solutions of his/hers as possible and train your brain to start thinking in the same way. You may know how to get to the answer, but it isn't very meaningful if you're taking roundabout methods which cost you valuable extra seconds.

The material I used for quant was Manhattan subject wise guides. I had read on many forums that Manhattan has harder quant questions, and my strategy for any exam is always to tackle higher level prep material. I like to compare my study process to exercising with leg weights on. If I exercise with extra leg weights (ie, Manhattan quant) for a longer time, the actual weight-less exercises (ie, GMAT quant) will start seeming easier in comparison. The last thing I want to be doing during my exam is freaking out because some question seems too difficult or "out of scope"

As for verbal, I solved every single collection of 700+ questions (for SC, CR and RC) posted by bb on forums (a simple google search should lead you to this). Again, the training weights analogy applies here too. The harder I train now, the easier it gets for me later.

Don't be afraid to get questions wrong. I've had streaks of wrong answers (especially on 70%+ difficulty GMATClub CR questions). Attempt each question conscientiously, but don't be disappointed to get it wrong, because each question you get wrong is just one more addition to your error log. And since you're only as strong as your weakest link, working on your weaknesses is the very essence of the GMAT.
