Last month I took my first attempt in GMAT and scored 650 (Q-49, V-30, IR-4 and AWA-4) after preparing for approximately 6 months. After that again prepared for 1 month especially on verbal part and reached the score of 700 (Q-46, V-39, IR-6 and AWA-5). So, I have achieved a 9 point jump in verbal this time but at the same time 3 point drop in quant (May be my focus was less in quant this time). Thanks to all the members who suggested me on various ways to improve my verbal score after I posted my 1st attempt experience here. It was really helpful for me. So, as of now I believe that I am done with my GMAT attempt and currently working on my B-school applications.

Congratulations! Sorry about the Quant score drop - that's pretty common for the section/score that one does not focus on to drop - it is almost a pattern since people forget/lost track of subtle items they have previously learned and lose during the intensive one-topic focus prep period. In other words - it is normal, unfortunately.
