If I bomb the exam, I guess I can blame it on Friday the 13th.

Final prep advice? Have a Thursday night dinner menu of salmon, mashed potatoes, and broccoli (figured fish is good for your brain and potatoes have alot of carbs).

Taking the workday off Thursday to rest up and prepare. GMAT is at 8AM so I MUST be in bed by 10PM.

I plan on bringing a power bar to eat during my breaks and some water. My practice tests scores are much lower on the ones I do the AWAs (640-680 without AWA and 600-610 with AWA) and I think it's an endurance issue. My verbal scores are much lower on my tests with AWA whereas my quants are in the same area regardless of AWA.

Here is my score history
GMATprep 1 (May 2009): 590
GMATprep 2 (May 2009): 550
Real GMAT (May 2009): 530 (37Q/26V)

MGMAT 1 (April 2011): 640 (44Q/34V) without AWA
MGMAT 2 (April 2011): 680 (44Q/38V) without AWA
Kaplan 1 (April 2011): 630 (39Q/40V) without AWA
GMATprep 1 (May 2011): 610 (42Q/31V) half-assed AWA
GMATprep 2 (May 2011): 600 (42Q/32V) full effort AWA
