Hi,

That's my first post on GMAT Club but I've been an active follower of the posts and would like to thank everyone for their posts.

I finally appeared for the GMAT and scored 730 (Q 49, V 40) in first attempt. Hope its a decent score for top 20 US Schools :? ... I started my prep few months ago with a mock score of 570 and then 600. Glad to see 730 finally.

Just to note few points which helped me:

- Stick to the official guide, official questions sets and GMAT Prep Official Practice Tests for practice. These are the best (Especially if you are working and don't have too much time)

- Refer to other material only to understand the concepts.

- GMAT Prep tests are best indicator of your performance on actual GMAT

- Identify your areas of improvement and work on those. In my case, I took egmat SC course which helped me boost my verbal score.

All the best everyone.

Thanks

My first GMAT Prep mock was 600 (Q41 and V32). I referred to mgmat practice tests/books for concepts and then practiced from OG, and G-Prep Qns. Be sure that you revise OG at least once. I practiced OG twice and then compared my ans from each practice session to see which one I got continuously incorrect. That will tell you areas where you need to be cautious while answering.

In addition, you may consider buying additional questions pack from GMAC (works on GMAT Prep Software), these qns cost few dollars but are definitely worth it. These qns, again, are true reflection of the kind of Qns you expect to see on the exam day. I also took 6 MGMAT papers, Quant in those was definitely tougher than the real GMAT. But, definitely a good idea to use them for practice.

Would be great If someone can advise me on the score. Any idea if 730 is a good score or i need to consider writing GMAT again, for the top 20 US colleges?

Thanks for the help!
