I've recently discovered the club.. and more I read, better I notice what I missed so far.. here's my story:

gmat 1 (Mar 3, 2004): 620 Q 48, V 27 (3 days of study - PR)

gmat 2 (Apr 3, 2004): 540 Q 47, V 24 (still lazy but finished PR tests)

gmat 3 (Nov 15, 2004): 670 Q 47, V 34 (worked for a month - finished kaplan verbal, DS, PS and SC section of OG.. mainly verbal section improved comparing with previous gmat)

gmat 4 (Dec 3, 2004): Need 7**

I think my main weakness is SC and me.. I get really worried at the beginning of the exam.. for ex. in gmat 3, I got a weird geometry DS question at the beginning od the exam (#2) and I spent 5-7 minutes on it.. not even sure if I got it correct at the end but I panicked afterwards.. I'm usually calmer in verbal (even though it's not my strength) most probably because I get used to exam atmosphere..

I really need your advices.. please let me know what I can do to improve my score..

thanks in advance!

I'm in a similar boat!

First time(early October), tried to allocate 2-4 hours per week to study, about 3 weeks of studying, got 690(don't remember the break down).

My prof and recommender is the head of the department at a top Ier school, and basically says that a strong GMAT score(his number was >760) would give me a "good" chance at his PhD program. But of course, if I could walk on water, then there is a "good" chance that I am a supernatural being. (yes, awkward phrasing, there are better options for the sentence, sorry been studying too much for the sentence correction - my weakest point).

My strategy has been to study almost every material I can get my hands on - princeton review, kaplan 800, GMAC 3 practice exams, etc.... All the material have a slightly different focus, and the actual GMAT(and to some extent GRE, SAT, etc...) always seems to have some minor material that catches me by surprise. I generally do pretty well in the math sections(800s on GRE, SATs, yada yada), but last time, there was a problem that took me some 10-15 minutes, which I eventually gave up on and selected something to go on.

My exam is on saturday of thanksgiving, and I'm taking the whole week off to study, relax, focus, and recooperate. I find that rest and focus has the largest impact on my performance on ETS tests.

Anyhow, Good luck!

(I've taken, in chronological order, 9 SAT 1, 3 SAT II, 3 GRE, and 1 GMAT. ETS is making a small fortune from me).
