710 - Q50/V35 - short debrief [#permalink]  19 Aug 2008, 05:30
AWA - usual argument and issues, I had a template in mind. Finished it within time limit but dint get enough time to proof read the argument essay. I make a lot of spelling mistakes while typing so there could some typos. Not sure how much it’ll affect the score. Fingers crossed.

Took a break.

Math : I’m an engineer (by qualification) so math is a strong point for. I’ve scored well in practice tests and I could complete the math section with average 10-15 minutes to go. But this GMAT math section was a killer. When I clicked the last question the clock was showing 0:03. It gave me couple of easy questions in the beginning and then it started the assault. Very – very difficult DS questions, I had to apply CR logic to solve one of them. Definitely it was way harder than GMATprep.
I think I’m fortunate that I got 50. After the test, I was expecting something in 40s.

Took a break, had a Red bull

Verbals : Same story as Math. Very difficult as compared to GMATperp. Started with an easy SC question and after few SCs and CR gave me a RC with very small passage, but in all the questions 2 answer choices were very close and I had to go back to passage again and again to verify my answers. Finally just clicked one and went ahead. CR is my strong area in verbal and I think I did well in CR. I dint get any bold face. Finished the section 3 minutes to go

Practice tests

GMAT prep1 – 750 (Q50/V41)
GMAT prep 1 (retake) – 730 (Q50/V38)
GMAT prep 2 – 730 (Q50/V37)
Princeton test 1 – 700 (Q50/V37)
MGMAT test 1 – 730 (Q49/V41)

I could have done better in Verbals. I was aiming for a Q50/V40 combination.

EDIT 1: I forgot the thank you note … Thanks to all… you guys are great…
EDIT 2 : the million $question, should i ratake ? ... ( Guys i just want a lot of Nos.... cuase i'm least interested ) Last edited by durgesh79 on 19 Aug 2008, 07:04, edited 1 time in total.

Congrats, durgesh! That's a great score. Don't re-take. You've broken the 700 barrier, which is enough for any school. It may even make you look bad if you re-take.

Great score durgesh. I would say Do not retake unless you are trying to get a high enough score to teach somewhere.

If I get into Columbia or Kellogg, those are in big enough cities that I might have a shot at teaching for Manhattan. I've really started thinking about it after posting so much on here and I really enjoy it. _________________ ------------------------------------ J Allen Morris **I'm pretty sure I'm right, but then again, I'm just a guy with his head up his a$$.

Congrats. 710 is a good score.

If you looking for top 6, I would suggest you for re-take.

YOU ARE A 750+ CANDIDATE.

All the best

Thanks guys,
I've posted my profile in "Member's Profile"... you can checkout if interested.

Lesson learnt :

Do not skip AWAs during the practise tests. I did that and i think its one of the reasons for my lower score in Verbals. With AWAs you actually have to go through two and half hours for focused brain activity before you even start the verbal section as compared to only 1 hr 15 minutes if you dont do AWA during practise....
i felt drained out in last half an hour of the exam.

Congrats, Durgesh!
You needn't to retake, IMO, unless some of the schools of your choice requires specific % in verbal. So I think it would be better to concentrate on the applications now...
Good luck!
