Got it!!!

Almost did not prepare since the previous attempt (710) and still got 30 points more. It shows how luck is important in GMAT. Thus, do not underestimate it!

Thank you everyone (BB to you especially) for your input and good luck!

Wow, I don't think I'd write it again if I had 710 in the first place. But congrats! Can you also supply your scores with Kaplan PP and such?

I guess that picture of your "girlfriend" was quite a motivational tool.

As for preparation: my advice would be very standard and boring - practice, practice and practice as much as possible.

One important advice: if during the test your brain tells you that the answer is "C" and your "gut feeling" tells you that the answer is "D" - pick up "D". The only difference between my first and second attempt was that during the first attempt I was doing everything by brain, and during the second by "gut feeling". Second was much better in terms of verbal.

That picture would make a great poster... seriously, I have not seen a shot like that in NYC at the poster stores/galleries. I think it would sell well.

Cheers

agree. it is the beautiful depiction of the sense of photography and imagination. black & white has added an extra aesthetic touch to it.

How come you retook the test when you got 710 in your first attempt?
I thought the GMAT had dimishing value after a certain level (say 680 -700).
