Hi,

My first try had been in July 2012 and I scored a 630 (Q39 V37). These are the materials I had used the first time around:

GMAT prep 1 - 640
GMAT prep 2 - 600
MGMAT CAT1 - 700
MGMAT CAT 2 - 640
MGMAT CAT 3 - 700

Princeton book - too basic
OG13 and supplemental books - great practice questions but I lacked the basics
Kaplan 800 - okay, not too great

As soon as I got my first score, I ordered the Manhattan GMAT books. I finished all 5 math and all 3 verbal books in 2 weeks while working 60-80 hours a week. Also used Total GMAT Math for additional practice questions and skimmed CR Bible 2 days before the exam.

Took 3 more MGMAT CATs:

MGMAT CAT 4 -700
MGMAT CAT 5 - 740 (4 days before exam)
MGMAT CAT 6 - 740 (3 days before exam)

Actual score: 710 (Q47 V40)

I was hoping for a little higher. But given that I only prepped for an additional month, I am ecstatic with my 710. I have to attribute a large portion of my success to the Manhattan GMAT books. They are truly the best of all the books I used.

I thought about retaking since I panicked on the last 5 verbal questions and thought I could bump my score up another 10-30 points probably.

Ending up focusing on essays and got into Columbia. Will be starting in the Fall.
