Hello all,
Although my story is not the happy one, I would like to share it with you.
I took the test today and got 590.
The breakdown is Quant : 47, Verbal:25

I started the exam calm. The essays were OK. The quant section was fine. I have background in engineering and although I did not study much, I am satisfied with my quant score. I am a non-native speaker so I spent almost all study time on verbal mostly from gmatplus which I was getting almost 80 percent correct. ( I also went through OG)

Well, I started the verbal and went on to question 30 and was almost five minutes behind what I supposed to be. Suddenly I felt bad, went to the bathroom and threw up. When I came back I only had 2 minutes and 11 questions left. Knowing that I shouldnтАЩt leave anything unanswered, I just randomly pressed the answer botton without reading neither the questions nor the answer choices.

I would like to know whether the verbal score 25 means that I got 25 questions correct out of those 30 that I had the time to answer ? if it is so, it means that I just should practice on overcoming the stress otherwise well don't know what to say.
I hope my experience does not happen to any of you.

Sound like you got nailed by the stress. I have to take my test soon, and I know, it is a bitch. You just have to relax - take a couple of practice tests from Kaplan/Princeton. Try to simulate the test conditions, at least you will help calm your nerves.
