I have recently completed my GMAT. I have scored a 740(49Q 40V 6IR). Thanks to GMAT Club for helping me through the whole preparation. Now can you people help me out in choosing which colleges should I be targeting. Below is my profile:

GMAT Score: 740(49Q 40V 6IR)
Work Ex: 3.5 years in IT Services
CGPA: 9.08

Any sort of input is valuable.

Materials Used
Various GMAT question of the day sites (GMATClub)
GMAT Club Test (really good Quantitative and Verbal books compiled by the experts here)
Official Guide 2016
E-GMAT Verbal
GMAT Prep Mocks
1st Mock(GMAT Prep) : 530
After prepping for 4 months:
GMATPrep 1: 720
GMATPrep 2: 740
GMATPrep 3: 730
GMATPrep 4: 680(This one gave me a heart attack)
Actual Test: 740(Q49, V40,IR6) will upload verified once AWA is released.
What I recommend (short version)
-Use the EGMAT guides for the verbal(Great one for Non-Natives)
-Make sure to have a solid plan to tackle each of the three types of verbal questions (and each specific type of question for the three types)
-Use the OGs to practice questions
-Practice every week with a set schedule
-Definitely take one day off every week
-Take 3-6 practice tests
-Sleep 8 hours in the week(s) prior to the test date

What didn't help me
-Error log (lots of people swear by this, but it didn't help me); I just took note of general topics that I struggled with
-Studying without breaks (I did get burned out about 3 weeks before my test); take breaks!

740 is an excellent score. Do you mind sharing the stages of your prep to help other people? Are there any insights you'd like to share?

Excellent.
You scored excellent and basically, conditioned other parts of your profile are tuned, sky is your limit, go for any top school do you wish to go.
However, a question:
Except GMAT Prep mock tests, what other mock tests did you take and what were your scores?

your study plan in the last 30 days leading up to the exam.

Except GMAT Prep, I used GMAT Club tests for practice. Furthermore, I used Veritas Prep Free mocks. Other than that, You can also try Free mocks available with London Business School official page by The Economist.
Veritas Prep: 650(Q50 V29)
Veritas Prep: 710(Q51 V37)

your study plan in the last 30 days leading up to the exam.

I started my preparations in April and continued till June 30th. I completely devoted my last month in practicing mocks and trying new problem sets. My most important aim was to take care of the timing issue. Although I scored 700 in almost all mocks, i still was low in confidence till the end and this showed in my exam. I was expecting a 50 in Quant(Being a Indian which is kind of obvious), but i did some silly mistakes through the way.

It would be really helpful if anyone can help me out with my college selection and profile enhancement.

Regards,
Satyabrata
