720 Quant 47 Verbal 44 [#permalink] New post 06 Apr 2006, 19:42
Hi!
Got through my GMAT today. I was crushed by an abudance of number theory questions, my weakest math subject. I still pulled through witha 44 on verbal and 47 on quant.

My overall score is certainly high enough to get into the top five but I am not sure if I would benefit considerably from retaking. Anyone have any advice on that?

Adaptive practice tests were 710, 730, and 760.

I started my studying with The Dummies Guide. I then moved onto Princeton Review and the Official Guide. I skimmed through Kaplan and did several computer based practice tests.

My comptuer crashed during the beginning of my essay but they quickly moved me to another computer and tech support added time to the essay. I didn't actually lose anything as the computer constantly backs up.

Based on information here, I asked the proctor to find the best whiteboard marker and after testing several and inspecting the nibs, she chose one! I found the white board booklets to be sufficient and I don't think they cost me any points.

That's an awesome score. Are you crazy though? Why on earth would you consider retaking. Not only do you have a 720, but your verbal and quant. is very well balanced. My advice, move on and close the GMAT chapter. Good luck on your application, now go enjoy a few cold ones :beer

Im sure it was harder... you must understand the OG gives you a broad overview of difficulty ( the last few questions are rather tricky in the OG ) but even my PP tests are much harder than the OG11

I'd say my test was far harder than even the last 50 question of the OG or the Powerprep questions I encountered when I scored even higher on a sample test.

Hard is sort of subjective thought. I probably only had two straightforward questions. The hardest questions that crushed me were the multiple part number theory question, of which I counted at LEAST 8. In any practice test I did, I don't remember ever getting so many of those.

Thanks for your encouragement!

I did indeed have a few beers per your recommendation!


Well, on to the next test. Saturday = foreign service exam!

Hi Emstone,
Thanks for share your views. I am really scared man since QS is tougher in real GMAT. Good luck to you.
