All I can say is take the test twice if possible.

I think that the confidence of having already been to the text center and having earned a decent score would have provided a 20-30 point boost if I had the opportunity to take the test a second time.

The GMAT requires endurance and although I had my strategy down I realized that during my test I kept thinking "I just want to get this thing over with." This attitude most likely resulted in sloppy mistakes that kept me from that 700+ score.

3 Books (besides OG) that I thought were great for prep:

-Kaplan GMAT 800
-Manhattan GMAT's Sentance Correction
-Powerscore CR Bible

Good luck to everyone!!!
