660: Blew up my verbal score [#permalink] New post 12 Aug 2005, 11:35
Hi,
I have been a member of this club but didnt post. I write my GMAT today and scored very poorly in Verbal. My score was 660 of which 51 (99%) was my Quant and 27(46%) was my verbal.
I have never scored that bad in my verbal. The very 1st Power prep I took was 2-months ago without any preparation and scored 32 in that. So, it is very hard for me to believe this score. Anyway, I have to start preparing again -- any advice is mot welcome.
I must say thanks to GMAT club for my Quant performance. I wrote 6-GMAT club tests from the Archive and got from 70-98 percentile.

Thanks

Did you complete the AWA each time you practiced taking the test?

Did you have a sense that you were underperforming on the V section during the test?

I wrote AWA most of the time I took the test. The minimum I got was 29 in Verbal in Kaplan. When I took PowerPrep for the first time before touching OG -- I got 32 in Verbal. So, I really dont know what went so wrong today. Lately when I was taking Cambridge test, I never got more than 10 wrong in Verbal.

it is a lot about the test day.....and verbal is a lot about a few fundamentals and enough practise. so if you are in a mood for a retake - make sure you do the OG verbal section well... i posted my experience here a few days back - and though I didnt score very well in verbal - maybe you can draw something useful out of whatever little i did

also - there have been many high scorers - and you should read what each did to handle the verbal menace - who knows, which methodolgy will work for you...

all the best.
