After almost a year of procrastination, Gave my GMAT today in Finland.
I had given a GMAT earlier this year in Feb with dismal score which I ended up cancelling (620 - Q47, V 29) because it was nowhere near my cut
Got a score of 710 ( Q48, V39, IR 6 ) Will share a detailed debrief over the weekend. But short answer to most common questions

-Yes 700+ scores are achievable by anyone who puts in their efforts!
-GMATprep score are nearly as Accurate as the Final ones atleast for me had scored 700(GP1), 720(GP3), 720(GP2), and 730( GP4)..
- Had bought MGMAT tests but they were a big factor in shattering my confidence. I would suggest stay away from those.
-For Quants , PLS PLS PLS invest in GMAT club tests. They are the best resources in the market today. Quant theory, predominantly used GMATclub Quant book+ few online resources.
-Verbal, I had signed up for e-GMAT online Verbal only. I tried to follow their process for SC, but for me it didn't do good I guess.
But yes CR and RC, their process was really helpful in improving my score. I completed the scholaranium only for SC. Did a little bit of CR to check my accuracy. Did not practice RC from their site. For RC used only OffiicalGMAT Review 2018.

Ping me up if you have any questions or points you would like me to cover in my debrief.

Once again thanks to the entire GMATclub community especially Bunuel

Congratulations on the massive improvement. Eager to hear your verbal journey from 29 to 39. I myself have taken the exam twice with verbal scores not ticking.

Congratulations!! Amazing improvement. I work with e-gmat too and found the SC process hard for me, however their meaning focus approach changed a lot my strategy and helped me.

Thanks for sharing.
