680 (42Q, 40V) [#permalink] New post 04 Nov 2003, 10:08
took the test yesterday and was rather disappointed with the result. I did not expect my quant score to be that low. Granted I was not expecting 50, but had hoped for a 45 or above. Does anyone have suggestions for materials to improve this? I used kaplan and OG this time... I guess I could use another source. Additionally, I would like to get away with not even touching the verbal section during my next preparation. Is this possible? I'd say I devoted 80% of my time for this attempt at quant, and apparently, it still wasn't enough.

you mean the powerprep exams? I took them... 47Q on the first and 49Q on the second. I thought the first was representative of the actual exam in terms of quant difficulty, but the second was much too easy. I didn't receive tough math problems and I finished about 3 mins before time (which was a complete anomaly for me) I'm thinking I may have had an off day yesterday. Maybe I shouldn't have taken the exam in the morning. Maybe I didn't review my answers carefully enough because I was worried about timing... I agree though, practice is the only way to overcome feeling uncomfortably on the test.

Same exact score [#permalink] New post 09 Nov 2003, 12:07
Hey Duncan,
I got the same exact score & breakdown as you did.
My time management got screwed up around question 12.
I got some real tough ones, that I knew I could solve but wasted way too much time. Got rushed on the last 10-15 or so.

What really sucks is that my quant went down from a 44 on my last atempt.
But to put things in perspective we are still did better than 90% of gmat takers. :-)

Not sure if I should retake or not?

yeah, I'm in the same position. I think I'm going to give it another shot and just prepare for the quant section only. hope to take it again in 3-4 weeks. did your overall score go up? I don't want anything worse.... do schools necessarily see your scores if you take it again? or can you select to not send your report to anyone the second time around, then pay the extra money to send them later once you know that you've improved?

How it works.. [#permalink] New post 10 Nov 2003, 15:32
Here's how it works...............Either you can submit your scores or you can choose not to. When you do submit them all scores are submitted if you wrote the GMAT multiple times. The schools receiving your scores can see everything (ie. your whole GMAT history is laid out for the schools).
