Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Wow. simply awesome score.
You mentioned here http://www.gmatclub.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=28401 that you took the test in midtown. Taking mine there in May. How was the test center experience?
Also- could you comment on how you thought the actual test content compared to practice materials (GMATPrep & OG, in particular)?
Mid-town was great. People working there were very pleasant and helpful. And for New York City, it was pretty quiet surprisingly (although they do have ear plugs if you want them).
Test overall was a little different than GMAT Prep -- I think the GMAT Prep test are the best of anything out there on the difficulty of the questions (although Manhattan GMAT does a pretty great job as well). For math, the questions were much different actually -- they required more thinking, and less calculating. Verbal was actually a bit easier than I'd seen before. Overall, get used to GMAT prep, and you should be fine.
on that note, I ended up retaking both GMAT Prep tests, and although my new scores weren't that much higher or different, I did end up getting a bunch of different questions. I didn't do the reinstall or what have you -- just clicked start, and got pretty much a new set of questions.
From your posts last week it was clear that you were already with your prep.
Please share you prep staregies esp for Verbal and do hang around.
Good luck for your apps
