Thanks for your response Fig.
You are right that the score did not kill my moral. At least I know what point of direction I need to have to improve my score.
Well, I'm wondering about your preration:
> How long it was before this test?
2 months just staying home and study.
> Did u pratice the GMATPrep Test? How many times?
I did one from the mba website and another one from the nova book. I also used the Barrons book ( obviously the least recommended book from everyone here). I felt most of the people just jumped on the bandwagon to say how bad it was and bla bla bla. Actually I didn't think the book was that bad. Yes the Barrons bk doesn't follow much of the model on the GMAT test but it's just some minor differences. At least it has a lot of questions for you to do. I mean every GMAT book has its pros and cons but you just have to take advantage of the pros. Speaking of the nova book, I discovered that a lot of the quantitive questions are quite similar to the book. I highly recommend the nova book if you want an elaborate explaination on maths concepts.
> Have u practice the SC intensively ? (I did 3 times the 1000 SC documents plus the OG 11
, of courese Smile )
Woah 3x1000 SC!
I feel ashamed cus I haven't even finished 1000 questions yet. Actually a lot of the SC 1000 questions are similar on the test. So yeah I did not practice SC 1000 as intensively as you did. I should work more on that in the future.
> Have u felt tired during the Verbal section (usually at the half way) ?
That is really a good question cus I almost forgot about this. Yes I did feel tired during the Verbal section. (for those of you who don't know about this: writing test comes first, then you take Quant and finally Verbal) But I think it has to do with a slice of chocolate
. I ate one after the AWA section, probably it boosted my energy on Quant I guess. But I didn't eat chocolate after Quant and I was running out of energy on Verbal. Like Forrest Gump would say: Life is a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." Never underestimate the power of chocolates if you know what I mean. My point is, it's better to have a little snack during the breaks to have some brain energy on you.
