Tennis Ball .... congratulation
But, frankly, I was also expecting more. 750+ is a good judgment for you.
There are very few people, who deal with quanta as well as verbal equally well like you....
Good wishes for the application phase

Your 51Q shows two things:

1)quant is a better predictor for bschool success
2)51Q shows an expertise in a subject

What keeps Federer motivated? Nothing really, it's just that it's too easy for him. He is just that talented, and the competition plain stinks.

Congratulations. I didn't know about your verbal skills but I knew that your quant was truly first rate!

Inverse GMAT Experience [#permalink] New post 13 Dec 2006, 08:05
Hi, all. So fun to see another person hit 700+ and be able to call it quits. Definitely inspring.

But I was wondering, does anyone have any thoughts on discrepancies between verbal and quant? Would a 710 with more equal V/Q scores be better than my or Tennis-Ball's scores? I had sort of the opposite experience to T-B's: ran out of time in quant, scored a 41 (64%). Scored a 46 (99%) in verbal, with 20 minutes to spare. I also got a 710 total.

But I have to say that my celebration was short-lived, as I began to fret about my relatively low Q score.

Any thoughts?

It may mean differently for different degrees.

Update:

AWA is 5.0, same as SimaQ's. It is within my expectation, and I'm satisfied with it.

[quote="tennis_ball"]I just took my GMAT here 9am this morning. The score is 710(94%), Q51(99%), V34(71%).

2. For Math, familiarize yourself with all the fundamentals first, then practice. Nothing more to explain on this.


Hi Tennis... if you still visit this forum... I have a query for you. You advised in your debrief that "For Math, familiarize yourself with all the fundamentals first, then practice".

Which book/resource would you recommend to brush up the math fundamentals. As for my background, I haven't studied math beyond high school ... but I do not get intimidated by numbers either.

I would appreciate advice from anyone.

Thanks in advance.

The covered math is at high school level, although I didn't study standard deviation when I was in high school. But I was familiar with SD concept when I studied my CFA some time ago. So no worries about basic math here.

Basic concepts are covered in the offical OG, but they are abstract and may be hard to understand. Any other prep books will include all the math concepts, but I found "Kaplan 2007 Premier" covers it extensively and explained it very well with examples. The list of all formulas at the appendix of the Premiere is the best reference you can find. From there I completely cracked through the probability questions. After reading it carefully, probability is just about understanding what the question is asking to me.

Princeton Review's math coverage is a little simple to me. They are good reviews, but not very good if you wanna crack difficult questions.

So I hope this helps. Also why get familiar with concepts first before digging into the questions? They are the foundations the questions are built on. If you are strong at it, you can handle any math questions thrown at you. Once u are good at the basics, use many questions to practice.

Update: got an interview from the school. and waiting for the result. yes, luckily I didn't re-take the test. So if it's enough for ur range of schools, no matter Harvard or Wharton, spend ur effort elsewhere. :-D
