750 - Good enough! [#permalink]
10 Jul 2006, 03:19
Just came from the test center, completely pleased with the result:
750 (Q50, V40) 98 percentile
One more proof that hard work pays. Taking in account my relatively poor English and forgotten math skills, I am sure that everybody can if he just work hard enough.
Anyway, here is my short overview of the test:
Math was as I expected it to be, not too tough, although much harder then the OG. Got about 4-5 questions on probability and combinatorics, some were really hard though. Some extremely easy questions on geometry, and many ( I mean it ) questions on number theory.
Verbal was a sad surpise to me. Majority of the SC questions were extremely hard, in most I did not even know what they were testing. And I was relatively good in SC. At least I thought so. Did not get even one boldfase, but CR was quite hard. RC was relatively easy, except one where I was unable to undertand what it is talking about so I just separated it into smaller statements in the form: if A then B , if B and C then D and so forth. I guess it helped.
Anyhow I finished the verbal , guessed last two questions as I had only about 20 -30 sec. to spare, clicked Next , and prayed god to get more then 650. You can imagine my condition when I saw the score...
Well, that's all folks. I just want to repeat it once again, hard work will surely pay. So just do it! (C)
Awesome score deowl...Many congratulations .
You were great in the verbal section and nailed most of the explainations.
You deserved a little more in verbal considering the way you tore the CR's apart .
Anywayz 750 is indeed a great score...Best of luck with your Apps and do stick around the forum.
Wow, amazing score. You have to tell me your secret of getting such a great verbal score. I'm planning to but Manhatten GMAT sentence correction, did you come across this book for guidance. Feedback is god Thanks
Realy pleased to get such encouraging posts. This forum is great , but its members are outstanding!
alimad: I am not sure I can give an advice on Verbal since my score is relatively
low. I never used MGMAT SC book. The only resource that I used is 1000SC and SC forum at http://www.testmagic.com. The explanation that you can find there are invaluable. Pay special attention to those given by Eren and 800Bob . I didn't do any special training on RC or CR. I tried to increase my reading rate with EyeQ software , but after two weeks of training didn't notice any difference. My reading speed is about 300 -400 wpm depending on the difficulty of the text.
If anybody has any additional questions on my strategies or tips , I am not going anywhere , so just ask
