Hi all,

I just wanted to share a couple tips from my testing experience, might be helpful to you guys.

The actual test was pretty close to the GMAT Prep tests, but the reading comprehension and sentence correction were harder IMO, with the critical reasoning the same level. The quant section was pretty standard, maybe only 1-2 questions that were ridiculously hard. I also really had to pee for the last 15 min of quant, no doubt this messed up my focus haha. I got a subscription to GMAT Pill for the SC videos, they were, in my opinion, the best money I spent. The videos were very clear, and extremely helpful. The GMAT Club tests were invaluable earlier in my prep, just building up my quant chops so when I saw a hard GMAT quant question, I knew how to tackle it right away. Although I didn't hit Q50 or Q51, if I didn't have to pee really bad for that last 15 min I'm sure I could have hit that (make sure to pee fully during the breaks!). However, in anybody's last week before the test, running through every hard OG question, GMATPrep question, the two practice tests, and retaking the two tests to find extra questions is the most valuable thing you can do.

I didn't really put in too much time other than two weeks before the test when I just hit it hard for 4-6 hours a day, and let this serve as some inspiration to everybody out there that a little hard work will go a long way.
