All, I hope below information helps you in some way!

Score - 29,29,26,28 (112)

Reading - Passages are easy, almost similar to reading newspaper. I practiced 4-6 passages, that's all. If someone has prepared for GMAT, this should be much simpler. Regular reading definitely helps.

Listening - If one watches English movies, this section is a piece of cake. I practiced with 4-6 conversations/lectures, that's all.

Speaking - I went through all videos on this forum(link below) and practiced 8-10 times to find myself struggling with the speaking section - the templates slowed me down. I listened to a few audio clips on OG CD(actual responses) and decided to follow my natural speech. Due to lack of practice, I struggled for the first 3 questions in the test - couldn't conclude my responses but was better on the last 3 and somehow managed a 26. Just be confident and give a complete response within the time.

Writing - In GMAT, I got a 5.0, so was worried about this section. After reading a few essays from the OG CD, I decided to present essays my way rather than following templates. The templates may have worked for most of the people but somehow I felt restricted using them. So, I wrote the essays how I wanted to, it goes without saying that I followed only basic essay guidelines: Introduction - Body - Conclusion.

Let me know if you have any specific questions.
