1st GMAT practise Test [#permalink] New post 28 Jun 2013, 00:18

Guys,

I have appeared for my 1st Mock Test from Veritas Prep. I scored 530. q36v16. It has completely demoralized me. I read somewhere that mostly people improve by 100 points max. I need some feedback on this. Any sort of guidance/experience sharing is most welcome.

Regards,

Subhojyoti

There is a great deal of variation in student improvement. For one thing, your improvement depends a great deal upon why you got the initial score that you did. If you ran out of time at the end, you may see a significant jump just from learning to finish on time. Also, have you studied at all, or are you brand new to the test? Are you comfortable with English grammar, with reading passages in different subject areas, etc.? How about math? Did you miss problems because of small errors that can easily be controlled for, or did you consistently find the problems difficult to understand or manipulate?

I often see students improve by much more than 100 points, but it takes a lot of hard work. You have to be very consistent at looking at what you're doing that is and isn't working and then targeting your practice to build on your strengths and address your weaknesses.

Good luck!

Thanks a lot for the insight. I could not complete ir on time. In fact I could only completely few questions. I was completely unprepared for the test. I considered it to be the first diagnostic test. English is not my native language but I have a decent enough grasp on it. Rc was quite difficult for me to get the feel. I bought few mgmat materials and of to master the verbal section. Could you suggest few good books apart from mgmat, though I feel mgmat has covered topics quite well. For cr I intend to buy cr bible by David killoran
Thanks

That depends on what you want the other books for. Our 8 books are meant to cover the complete range of material on the test, but you will of course want to apply those skills by practicing in the Official Guide. I'll leave it to others to discuss whether our books are the best for your needs, but are you looking for *supplemental* material? If so, in what area, and are you sure you need more books? Most people find the three Official Guides and our set to be *more* material than they want to work through! :)
