3rd Time GMAT [#permalink] New post 02 Apr 2010, 07:23
Hello guys,

Hope everyone on the forum are well. Hapy Easter to everyone.

I have been watching the forum quietly since I have last written to you regarding my GMAT. As some of you probably know my GMAT experience of two times [Official Scores 420/460] is not as good as I would have liked. After exhausting myself really badly during my preparation for the two attempts, I have taken a couple of months break and decided to take the exam again on 1st week of June 2010. I got the books today that's been suggested on this forum.

I know "Nothing is impossible" - But can anyone suggest how realistic it is to improve the score by 220 points in 2 months time? I was really low on confidence after I took the exam second time and scored only 460, because I put a lot of effort, but definitely there are deficiencies that I have to work on. And are there any good indicators that will tell me as I move ahead with my preparation before June that my score will improve? Can private tutoring be a good option?

I really look forward to hear from you guys. I know you all are very helpful. So please feel free to tell me any strategies that you think can help me in improving my score.

See this post for my general suggestions/thoughts on this subject: should-i-retake-gmat-thread-retaking-gmat-strategies-83339.html

I think it will be tough for you to get 220 points in 2 months and probably impossible taking into consideration that you have already done some prep and exhausted a number of resources.

You need a complete overhaul and start with books such as MGMAT Math Foundations and Kaplan Verbal Foundations and only after that move on to actual GMAT prep. Don't take tests for a while but instead focus on basics...
