730 (q 50, v 40) [#permalink] New post 26 Nov 2003, 05:03
Hi Guys,
took the test today and got a 730, and i am very happy with the score. if i get a decent AWA i dont want to take the gmat ever again i would like to thank the members of this forum.


Had a very disturbed sleep last night(inspite of sleeping pill). went to the center in a kind of daze. thought that i was going to cancel the score.

now about the test.

got a somewhat easy argument topic in AWA. that kind of gave me a boost. the issue topic was also okay. wrote 5 paras for each.


quant. quite a few perm-comb and probability questions. i would like to think that i got most of them right. For this i would like to thank stolyar for his explanations. the quant got very easy after about 17-18 questions and i thought that i had screwed up as expected. nevertheless i kept going. even went to the rest room in the middle of the quant section. And finished 2 minutes early.

found the verbal okay but i kept performing POE(Process of elimination) on every question. got 2 b2b RC passages, 40 lines long. no EXPECT questions for CR so i thought i had screwed up again. but decided to accept the score keeping my fingers crossed.

i think i might have been lucky that the questions i got wrong were experimental or this day was really lucky for me.

i will write another post tomorrow about my preparation.

once again i would like to thank BB, Stolyar, AkamaiBrah, Mikhail, wonder_gmat, for their logical explanations and excellent questions.

i am sorry if this post reads horrible. hope i write the essays better.



regards
jay

thanx guys,


about my preparation:

like it has been said for an infinite number of times OG is the best preparation material. i finished nearly 80 % of the questions in the OG for every section.

Also the Quantitative problems(particularly perm-comb and probab. questions) posted on this forum are excellent. I found them a big help in my preparation.

I found kaplan good for SC and Quantitative.

my powerprep(taken before the OG) scores were 670 and 750.

kaplan tests are good in the sense that they keep you grounded :) . my scores in them ranged from 560 to 630.

Good luck to all you guys who are going to take the test!
-jay
