+ 130 points but still unsufficient... [#permalink] New post 28 Oct 2009, 10:38
Hi all,

Just took the GMAT for the second time. I scored 560 (Q32,V34). First time i took it I scored 430. In my GMAT PrepTest I used to score 40/42 in Quant but the 1st and second question in geometry just killed the motivation I had when I entered the room.

I just want to say that I will be taking it again until I have a decent score. I will not let the GMAT beat me. No way. I will work again and again. I have highly improved my initial score and will also improve the second one. I am not looking to achieve 700 but I know the 650 is more than feasible so I will get that score next time.

I spend a lot of time reading your comments and your methods and I must admitt I feel part of this forum and will also participate in your discussions, the latter will probably help me getting a higher score next time.

Keep it up guys

130 points is a pretty good improvement - I'd say it is very hard to improve more than that in a single shot. So, first of all - congratulations and a great job!.

Second - definitely possible to improve your score further.
