700 (48q/38v) on gmatprep - 1 week to go. How can I improve? [#permalink] New post 17 Jul 2011, 18:56
Hey guys, I don't want my title to mislead anyone. I KNOW that a 700 is an AMAZING score. I am 24, female, Brazilian... 700 is just what I need.

I took GMATprep1 a month ago and got a 670 (42q/40v)

Then took the GMATprep1 again 3 weeks ago and got a 680 (48q/35v)

Today, 1 week before my exam, I took the GMATprep2 and got the coveted 700 (48q/38v).

However, I'm not confident for next Monday. I mean, first of all, I used these tests in Dec/2010 to start my studies. Therefore, they weren't 100% fresh to me.

I mean, I barely remembered anything, but still, I'm just not confident that this was 100% accurate. Considering I got a 700 at home, without the adrenaline and with a test that wasn't 100% fresh to me, what are the chances that I will repeat this performance come test day?


I took the GMAT on December after not studying much at all and got a 580 (35q/35v). I scored between 620-660 in the prep tests, and 580 in the real exam. Therefore, I'm very scared of this test. SO scared. I have spent the last 6 months studying, even went to Manhattan GMAT Bootcamp in NYC in February, so I should keep in mind that I won't probably repeat that poor performance.

Verbal is my strenght, but I have improved so much in math. And verbal still fluctuates between 35-40. On this last test, I got 7 questions wrong in Verbal. 1 CR, 1 RC and 5 SC. So, I should bear in mind that I should probably focus on Sentence Correction this last week, right?

Also, what should I do to keep my stamina in math? A 48 is more than I could ask for, I started very weak in math.

I appreciate all the help, and sorry for being incoherent. I'm so nervous. Getting this 700 in prep made me realize that I'm close - but will it be enough?

Any tips, advice? Realistically, can I reach the 700 in 1 week under official test conditions?

For the last week, the best thing to do is use the GMATPrep Documents!

There are hundreds of SC and CR questions. Use these documents and find solutions to them on MGMAT Forums. That should help you improve.

But do so after you have completely exhausted the GMATPrep Software

I'm going over my error log and the harder quant questions for me on the OG. That's what I'm doing for quant.
I'm going to go over my 13 mistakes on gmatprep1 now as well...

As for verbal, I'm going to do a ton of SC questions from the OG.

I can't believe I only made 1 mistake in CR and 1 mistake in RC. I would like to say that I really improved CR by reading whiplash's CR bang bang guide - that I got here at gmatclub.

I might do gmatprep1 again on Friday before the exam... but saturday and sunday I only want to focus on the essays and maybe memorize some formulas.. no heavy studying.
