EDIT: I finished the GMAT just now and got a 760 (51Q 44V). I'm glad that this was consistent with my practice test scores. I'm surprised and pretty happy since I haven't had time to do much GMATing over the last week.

See my practice scores below. I will post my strategies + lessons learned later.


Below are my practice test results. Will post my actual GMAT results + strategy (or maybe mistakes/lessons learned?) in the next 48 hours.

Kaplan1: 690 (50Q, 38V)
Kaplan2: 730 (50Q, 40V)
Kaplan3: 660! (50Q, 36V)
Princeton Review: 750 (51Q, 43V)
GMATPrep1: 760 (51Q, 44V)
GMATPrep2: 780 (51Q, 46V)
GRE PowerPrep (I figure I could use the reading comp practice): 1510 (800Q, 710V)
GMAT PowerPrep1: 780 (50Q, 49V)
GMAT PowerPrep2: 760 (50Q, 41V; I didn't finish the verbal section)

I'm shooting for a 750+ but honestly I'd be perfectly fine with a 700+ and in the grand scheme of things, my life would probably turn out just as well with a 650+. I just hope these Kaplan tests underestimate as much as people say.

Take some chocolate or power bar with you. Put them out of the bag in the locker for easy access. Take a few bites when on breaks. They will sure help you!

At the test:
- Arrive at the test at least 30 minutes early. Bring multiple IDs just in case some expired. :-)
- Do concentrate on the first 10 questions of each section most. At the beginning of each section, the total number of questions and the total time allowed are stated.
- Maintain a focused mind and a positive winning attitude throughout the entire test.
- Do not panic. Focus on one question at a time. Focus on one section at a time. Do not think beyond your current section and lose your concentration.
- Do not get fixated and spend unreasonable time on any single question. It will not make or break your score. Because the score per section is partially based on the number of questions you answer, try to answer as many questions as you can.
- Do not leave any questions unanswered before the section time runs out. Always submit an answer after some educated or blind guesses. Remember that you cannot skip questions or change an answer once you confirm it.
- If something is wrong with the computer, or if someone is bothering you, or if it's miserably hot etc., signal to an exam proctor. The proctor walks around in the test room every 15-20 minutes.
- Pace yourself and keep track of your progress by checking the amount of time you have left on the test screen. Each section is 75 minutes. You have about two minutes per Quantitative question and about 1.75 minutes per Verbal question.
- Pay attention to the number of questions that remain in a section. There are 37 quantitative section questions. There are 41 verbal section questions.

i'll just add - get there early, since it takes some time to sign in. however, if the line is long, and you find that your scheduled start time is rapidly approaching - DON'T panic. the only thing that will happen is you will start late, but you'll still have the same amount of time to finish.

other than that, just clear your head tomorrow, make sure to eat enough beforehand, and bring your ID, test confirmation printout, and a positive attitude to the test center. good luck!
