shaarang, I can't believe that I didn't notice this when it was posted, but this is one of the best debriefs I've seen on the forum.

In particular, I love that you're willing to share your experiences with anxiety and mindfulness. Anxiety is the elephant in the room when it comes to the GMAT, and the more we talk about it as a community, the easier it's going to be for test-takers to recognize it, address it... and then punch the GMAT in the throat (to continue with your fight analogy!).

Congratulations on the 740, and thank you again for being so open in your debrief. Good luck with your applications!

This is the best debrief I have read. I will surely try to apply these tricks in my prep.

I hope you got the college you wanted

Indeed a great post. Practice is the key. Although i am yet to give the exam but i have seen myself improve on the mocks with practice.
It starts to flatten at a point and probably that's where posts like these give you strength to drive few more extra miles.

Thanks for the de-brief. It was a really generalised one which helps for starters like me.

I think this is an amazing debrief. Its feels so good to read about others stories,when you yourself get boggled down with GMAT prep.
Thanks shaarang for sharing.

Congratulations man! One of the best debriefs. I must admit that it was his debrief which let me approach egmat but sadly even after 1000 hrs or prep my verbal scores have taken a huge dip from V32 in April to V24 in August (last GMAT attempt).
