I had posted this topic in another popular gmat forum..Didnt get much help from there...pls guys help...i wanted to fight back..
I had taken GMATPREP1 without any preparation as a diagnostic test and got 570. I understood I was weak in verbal and concentrated on Verbal during my preparation. I had read the MGMAT SC
guide and Powerscore CR
bible multiple times (close 5 times) and had a very good accuracy with last 50 questions in OG. But I dont know what happened on the GMAT i got only 18 in Verbal section. Got 620 in GMAT Prep2, 590 in princeton review, 580 and 590 in Kaplan
online events. But scored 530 on the real GMAT. I cannot digest this score.
Of all the Tests that I have taken till now I have scored the least in GMAT. I hope it never happens to any student. I also felt that the test was tough. The very second question i got was a permutation and combination problem. First 15 were very different most of them were DS questions and the last 10 were very easy. Finished the last 10 in 13 minutes(44 in Quant). I though the verbal was not that difficult. But i couldnt think clearly on the CR part. The duration of the test had taken its toll on me. I couldnt think clearly on CR and I wasnt following the technique that I had been following during practice (I was using POE- process of elimination on each question). I have never done the AWA part during the full length test. Thats the BIGGEST MISTAKE I made. Also I think my preparation had some gaps. I wasnt reviewing the mistakes that I was making. Need your help on the below questions. I am planning to take on GMAT again and prove myself the second time. I am aiming for 700+ score.
1. How to prepare mentally and physically for the GMAT.
2. How to review the wrong question is Verbal.
3. How to improve in Verbal section. I used MGMAT SC
and Powerscore. Also suggest good practice material for Verbal.
I'm really frustrated with my score. Just a week before the GMAT i had score a 620 on GMATPREP2. Guys, Friends, Tutors pls help me fight back.
