Congratulations and Thanks for the debrief! Always find debriefs very inspiring.

So quick question, did I understand correctly that you felt the official gmat quant sections were easier than the actual test day gmat quant section? How did you find the Verbal and Quant sections compared to the practice tests you took?

Thanks.

What I meant was that the when compared to the GMAT Prep mock tests, I personally think that the actual test day GMAT Quant is a bit more difficult. Verbal of the mock tests and actual day are on par in terms of difficulty.

Again, do take my feedback as something that was applicable for me and not as a line in the sand. Practicing higher difficulty questions never hurts.

Take away:
3. I used a lot of songs to hype myself during the entire journey. I can make a list if you like. Also, take very good care of your diet/health in general, you want yourself performing at 100%.

Congratulations Akhil!! Love the debrief!

I am sure the song list would be much appreciated by the community (yours truly included!!!). If it's not too much trouble, then I would request you to create your list and share it here.

And I cannot agree more with the "diet/health" comment. Quite often than not, while balancing all the competing priorities, we forget the single most thing that keeps us running - our body.

Regards,
