Hi Friends and all GMAT Aspirants,
After a long wait and relentless study sessions I am here to share my experience of My GMAT with all. This journey can't be complete if i don't mention a few names. I would thank Daagh sir for his clear and detailed explanation of SC questions, Syantank for his expert on topic that only few dared to explain ,carcass for his vast collection of official questions ,Buenel for his Quant questions , Karishma for help in CR questions and last but not the least BB for founding such a great website to help students for the cause.Please accept my heartfelt thanks.
After a hiatus from my 680 score in 2011 I thought I would never be able to score good and though myself to be unfit to pursue MBA.Got married had a family life when I realized that the Dream of MBA is something that i have to fulfil. But at an age of 34 starting to study again was a huge task. But the GMAT club made it look very easy .I only had to be consistent rest all was GMATclub all the way.
I followed advice from experience of Syatanak who has written such a wonderful experience to share.I first read manhattan guide of all SC ,CR ,RC,& quant .Very good book i must say you could download soft copy from torrent network .It took me around 20 days to go through all the things that i had missed in the five year gap. Then i started solving questions 13 of RC ,13 of SC ,13 of CR , 19 of DS and 19 of PS on daily basis .This practice was very important to my success. It ensured that i got good in the sections that i was weak and also maintained my consistency of the subjects that i was good at.The Explanations provided by experts helped me correct some misconceptions that i could not gain from the book. The workbook provided in the tab helped me recollect all the questions that had attempted wrong. Bookmarks allowed me to put critical learnings on hold for future use.I have no words for thanking this noble cause for helping students prepare for MBA.My advice to all aspirants would be to please don't look questions from unknown sources they will only make you confused .Attempt questions from only reputed sources like Manhattan ,veritas or the great official guide.
Thanks to all from the bottom of my heart.

Now, you can think of schools and application instead of worrying about GMAT or doubting your ability.
Like you, i am also an older candidate, maybe even older, and am pushing for a GMAT score higher than 700 to raise my chance of getting to my dream schools, schools that i could only go to and attend their classes in my dreams.
The only reasons that recently read these debriefs is to keep my moral and believe in myself that it is doable.

All the best with your application season.
