man u have 20 yrs of exp.. wow awesome..

crossing 680. i guess as aim-wsc said.. download GMATprep and write and see where you stand.. and then work on your weak areas...

there are quite a few GMAT forums from where you can get practise questions ( scoretop.com, testmagic.com) .. practise them and I am sure you can get more that what you want.

and yea one month probably requires more than 4-5 hours of preparation per day.

and definetely check this post by Eric the Great.

Definitely download the GMATPrep tests...they're free and they're a must along with the OG. There's another free practice test on www.review.com, but if you can buy that company's book, Cracking the GMAT, you'll have another four tests.

I suspect you're rushing and that you're making yourself nervous. You should be thoroughly reviewing the fundamentals...you pretty much need to relearn much of your math. However, a 680 is a high score and a great start.

Panicking is only going to make it worse, so take a deep breath, and focus on learning what you need to learn to do well and be confident.
