670 Q-47 V-35 [#permalink] New post 16 Nov 2005, 22:48
I wrote my GMAT today for the first time and I'm quite happy about my score. I had been aiming for about 650.

My preperation:

- I started off with with PR Cracking the GMAT
- Then I did GMAT 800
- Finally I did as much of the OG 11 as possible, basically covered the difficult questions, I found the easier ones to be a waste of time...
- Also since discovering this site about a month ago it has been a very valuable source for math and verbal questions and more importantly to read other peoples experiences with the GMAT

I only took two practice tests

- PP 630 (before OG)
- pp 700 (After OG, one day before the test)

I took the test at 9am and it went quite smoothly, the washrooms were really far from the test area which was annoying but other than that it was good.

I was happy with the essay topics I got and I used up all 30 minutes for each one. I'm curious to see my scores on them.

I took my times with the math section. I finished the math section on the PPs with time to spare so I took my time in the real test. A couple of tough questions took me 5 minutes each to solve but I got them right in the end and I think it was worth it. I recovered the time on some of the other questions by not rechecking the answers that i felt I got right the first time. I finished right on time in the end.

The verbal didnt go as well as I had hoped or as it did on the PP. Although I felt I was getting tough questions the whole time, I got a few SC that I simply didnt know how to answer. Still finished with 10 minutes left at the end of the section.

I was pleasently surprised to see my 670 score after filling the survey and left the center happy :-D no real complaints about the center.

I'm applying to four schools in Toronto area and i'm hoping 670 will be competitive based on the average GMATs accepted. I know I could have done better especially on the Verbal, but I dont plan on writing the test again, I will work on my apps instead.

Congrats! I agree that you should focus on your apps. Retake the GMAT only if really necessary or if you have the luxury.

All the best for your apps!

Thanks alot!
Yeah I agree I think my time is better spent on the application right now, and this way I can apply to an earlier round. I'de rather do that than retake the test.
