Guys finally I am done with GMAT. I just got back from the test.
I scored a 650 (Q 48, V 31). Considering my preparation, this is far below my expectation. But it could have been worse. That is why I am not very unhappy. I am glad it is finally over.
This is my second attempt. On my first attempt on the 7th of September I scored 600 ( Q49, V23). I was really devastated with that score. That is when I started to become active in the forum. my first post of the forum was
I started with a poor verbal aptitude. This forum helped me improve my score in the verbal section. 50-point increase in 3 month is a fair achievement. I thank a lot of people for that. GMATT73, jamjatang, Duttsit, Himalya, Laxieqv, TechM, Joemama, Freshna, GSR, Paul, Vithal, ParveenRao, RahulRao and so many other members inspired me. I am very grateful to you.
Looking back at my score, I know I can still improve a bit, but I don't think its worth the effort. I would be more delighted if my quantitative score were at least 49, matching my last score. But hey my total score improved 50 points..... so I can't complain....
I think the 1000 series, ETS paper test and having access to the challenge folder contributed to my improvement. But it wouldn't be possible without the active participation in the forum.
Thank you guys a lot. GMAT club rocks. I will still be around. I got tons or resource with me. If any or you need any material just give me a buzz.

Congrats nakib... that's a great improvement. I'm sure if you ever decide to retake the test, breaking the 700 barrier will not be an obstacle for you. Thanks for all the questions and the involved discussions. Good luck w/ your apps.
Provide us some more insight into your prep and how the test went.
Good luck for your apps... Hope you'll stick around.
