I'm not sure if I should be stressing here or not but I just took my first full-length practice GMAT.

I haven't taken any prep courses or completed any type of reviews.

I scored at 590 Q42, V31. I'm optimistic I can improve this, especially since I just winged it but I'm interested to know how others did the first time they took a shot at the GMAT.

I'd also be curious to know how you did after 3 months of studying/reviewing/etc. I have found a bunch of posts on people who improved significantly, but I'm interested to know more form a larger audience.

I've been following these forms immensely, and have already found considerable help.

1st GMAT Prep: 720 (after having studied for 10 hours or so)
Actual GMAT (1 month and 20-30 hours of preparation later): 750

I'm sure that you'll improve a lot over the course of your preparation. It took me some time to get a "feeling" for the GMAT, especially when it comes to the reading comprehension questions.
