730 - Q45, V45 [#permalink] New post 28 Mar 2008, 09:43
Lurked in the prep section a bit last week, so thought I would add my experience.

Got a 730 96%
Quants 45 78%
Verbal 45 98%

My biggest concern was waking up in time as the test was at 8 AM. That is normally la-la land time. Kinda embarrassing for an engineer to have sucked in the quant section :oops: but hey. Did finish the Manhattan sentence correction book, which I have to say is rather good. Anyone know if schools weigh in the quant% when doing admissions? Should I be worried about it?

Things I leanred. Joe Bloggs has to be retarded. Watching an episode of scrubs for every 1.5 hours spent on preparation is therapeutic and my case seems to have helped. . Jobs cramp your style. Expect 2 hrs of useful prep on a workday and 6 on weekends.

Seriously.. A friend gave me that book and its gotta be absolutely worthless.

I think of the books that I had, Kaplan was the toughest and official review was good practice.

Congrats Daszero, that is an excellent verbal score. I hear they look for an 80/80 split, and your quant seems right on target.

I have no idea of how the patterns ended up to be honest. I think it was closer to 12/12/12. As for test scores, don't let it bother you too much. I scored about 50 points higher than my average score on the 3 tests that I took, if that helps. I think being relaxed and rested is key.
