I just wanted to post this because I know I found such posts helpful and maybe I will be able to help someone :)

(I was off work for this duration btw)

I bought the subscription to GMATPrepNow by Brent and started off with it. His explanations are crisp and clear and each module accompanies official questions from the same topic. He also responds back to any query/ question very promptly. I found his lessons extremely helpful and I'm thankful to him for my score.

After going through all the modules whilst completing the OG, I still had a lot of trouble with SC questions ( actually I never really got out of it :P ) But my accuracy increased from 20% to around 60% after referring to Manhattan SC guide

At this time My quant score was around 45 and verbal around 32

I went through the GMAT club math book to get a better understanding of the concepts.

I made sure to only practice from the official questions only. CJ has made a mega compilation of the same and it has more than required questions to practice from.

My mocks scores were as follows :
1. GMAT Prep 1: 480 Q 31 V 25
2. GMAT Prep 2: 640 Q 45 V 32
3. GMAT Prep 3: 710 Q 49 V 38
4. GMAT Prep 4: 720 Q 50 V 39

I couldn't replicate a 710 or 720 score in the real GMAT and end up with a 700

Thanks for the insight.

I did the concepts from Brents videos and Practiced the ques from official ques only.
For all the topics I started with easy level questions and then jumped to medium and hard.

The first mock I took was before preparation, the 2nd one was after my concepts and the accompanying questions from brents video , 3rd and 4th were during the last month

Hope it helps!
