Hi All,
I started my preparation for GMAT a week ago aiming to score above 700 (took leave from office) and opted for Kaplan for practice.

The following are my scores.

Day1(sep21)- Kaplan(2014) 700 Q50 V23 (shocked as I did not expect 700 at all)

Then one of friends who was preparing for GMAT suggested me to take Manhattan tests( more close to GMAT scores)

Day3- Manhattan MGMAT CAT1 600 Q45 V28

I thought 600 seemed to be a realistic score at this stage, and finished Manhattan's SC guide in 8 hours and was very confident give a better performance for the following CATs.

Day4-Manhattan MGMAT CAT2 610 Q46 V29(lol!! 8 hours of effort resulted only in an increment of 1 unit)

Reviewed the post exam analysis.

Day5-Manhattan MGMAT CAT 3 620 Q47 V29

I was frustated at this point of time and decided only to take verbal section of CAT as I had no much time left for preparation.

Day 6- Manhattan MGMAT CAT4 370 V31,Manhattan MGMAT CAT4 380 V33(skipped the quant section)

Day-7 At this point of time I thought may be 1 week is not at all sufficient to get a score of 700 or above and decided not to waste my friday night,and had some beer with my room-mates( I Knew that if I had 8 hours of sleep, 3-4 pints of beer would not affect me either mentally or physically)

Day-8(sep28) GMAT 700 Q50 V34 (woww..I was expecting somewhere around 640 to 660!!)

Conclusion: Do not get demotivated by MGMAT scores, quant section is tougher on MGMAT CATs compared to actual GMAT and you could safely add 2-3 points more on quant and 1-2 points more on verbal on the actual GMAT.( I am talking about the 2013 version of the MGMAT CATs)
I would also suggest to have beer the night before the D-day

So.. the good news, is that your practice scores are already in a good range. That said, I don't think it's realistic to think that you'll "land the plane" in a week. There's much more to 'study prep' than simply taking practice tests.

For what it's worth -- I'd encourage you to check out these two links -- they provide a good framework to think about putting a plan together.

Good luck!
