680 Q(49), V(34) 89% [#permalink] New post 07 Feb 2006, 12:51
I just finished my test about three hours ago. What an experience!!!
First I want to say that I am satisfied with my score, although it was a little bit lower than my original goal of 700. (What's more, the better part is that I can apply for my dream school now).

You can see that I did fairly well on math. I have to say that I owed that totally to Gmatclub. I began preparing for GMAT since mid 2005 and initially I focused on SC, RC and CR. But over the past three weeks I focused on studying math. I did a lot of problems in this forum. It is definitely helpful. I didn't do many challenge questions. (maybe they were too difficult for me) , but I still want to thank Praetorian for giving me access. That is very kind of you, indeed. The real questions are similar to those appeared here. (For those of you still yet have to take it, practice as much as you can.) I want to thank Giddi, duttsit, ywilfred, vivek, laxieqv, I’ve learned so much from you guys.

Now I want to talk a little bit about my test experience. I think it was horrible. (that is why I decided against taking the test again.) I managed to finish every section in time. The math questions were all difficult. I got stuck on a couple of questions (the sad part is that I am so sure I practiced these kinds of problems in this forum. That is why it is important that you do those difficult questions again and again, so you remember how to solve them). I did not encounter any combination or permutation problems.

After encountering several tough questions, I lost my concentration and became uptight. But luckily I was able to calm myself down a few minutes later. I think it is very important that you not get nervous during the test. The more nervous you get, the more mistakes you will make. Well, stillm I can't believe it is all over now. Thanks again, GMATclub.

giddy, I can't tell whose verbal section is more difficult, the GMATPrep's or that of the real test. Guess they are not much different.

As for the so-called erasable boards, it is not erasable. I guess only the test administrators have the special tools to erase all the scribbles when we finish. (so it can be used again later). What I got was a five-page notepad (both sides usable) and a blue ink pen. (My fingers were stained blue when I walked out the test center). The pages are yellow and made of plastic. If you use up all the pages, you can ask the test administrator for a new notepad. I don't think you can reuse the page. (you can't erase those scribbles yourself)

Hey Duttist, that is the same score you got right? Are the percentiles the same this time?
