730 (Q50 V40) GMAT [#permalink] New post 20 Mar 2010, 11:26

Hi All,

I originally had my appointment in the last week of January. I wasn't prepared and postponed it to this week. Gave my GMAT this week and got 730.

Attached is an excel sheet I prepared during my preparation provided on as-is basis. I am sorry but I cannot support any questions regarding that. Some of the stuff from some sheets may not make sense.

The most useful part of preparation was taking the CATs frequently. I took over 15 CATs and over 10 during my last 3 weeks of preparation. Of the CATs, I found 800 score's 5 tests to be excellent no matter what people say. Manhattan's 6 tests have also been of tremendous help. I got about 3 680's, 1 660 and 1 700 in those tests. I would say Manhattan is tougher than the real exam and the standards are really good. And, I cannot praise GMAT Prep tests enough. I took both the tests twice.

For books, I did OG 11, OG 12, Princeton review, Princeton Verbal workout, Kaplan 800, Manhattan SC, RC, CR, and the word translation. I would recommend not to do Manhattan word translation. The real GMAT questions I faced were relatively easy, and less lengthier, straight forward etc. Manhattan SC is excellent and many success stories praise it. OG 11 and OG 12 also helped me a lot. I now feel I over prepared, but no harm done. I don't know if Verbal workout helped me at all, but I cannot criticize it. My Math skills were pretty good since the beginning and the reason I had to postpone was because of my verbal skills.

The only piece of advice I can give to all is to do as many CATs as possible. During my real test, I was not worried about the time at all. I guessed on a 5-6 question in the whole test, but I was never worried about that time and that is going to help me a lot. I also used the headsets provided by the test center and that helped me a lot. I felt I was the only guy in the whole room although there were more than a dozen test takers.

Well, that's about it and I wish you all good luck with your test and thanks to gmatclub for answering my questions. I will try to give something back by filling your score estimator.

Which reminds me that the GMAT score estimator is another great tool invented by these guys.
That helped me a lot as well in estimating my score and staying modest about my expectations.
