thanks for your advice.
720 Q49, V39 (95th percentile)
Finished the GMAT!! Glad that's over with, so glad that I don't have to take it for a second time. I've been frequently browsing this forum for the past couple of weeks, and have benefited from some of the advice/tips that were provided by other users.
As such, I hope to do the same by providing some anecdotal advice.
Some information about myself--recently graduated from college in US, will be entering the investment banking industry. Preparation time: 6 weeks, with about 20 hours per week devoted to studying.
Test day: be aggressive and paint a positive mental picture. This was stated elsewhere in the forum and it really is great advice. Picture receiving the score you want and never doubt yourself during the test.
I found the Quantitative section to be virtually identical in difficulty to GMATPrep software, and much easier relative to Manhattan GMAT's section. On verbal, the difficulty was very similar to that of Manhattan GMAT.
Thus, doing Official Guide problems would be essential in preparation, as they accurately portray the difficulty of the real exam.
Materials used: Manhattan GMAT 8 guides, Official Guide 11 (all 3 guides)
