18 out of 20

Finally-- a GRE Quantitative score to report. 18 out of 20, and only two practice sections left before I plunge into the Kaplan book's various drills. As before, the mistakes were stupid, i.e., the result of carelessness-- and this despite my having had extra time to go back and check my answers (the timed sections give you 35 minutes to answer 20 problems; I'm becoming a lot more confident with the new, revised formats).

The good news, I suppose, is that I seem to have left 16/20 territory; while I'm not 20/20 yet, I'm hovering in the 90%-95% region. This bodes well for my eventual scaled score, even if I don't get the fabled 800: I can at least proudly market myself as a legitimate 750-or-above kinda guy.
