Great job walker, you deserve more than a 750, but what the hey...

Everyone here share your joy, although your score is great, I think I speak for most (if not all) people here that your great score is pale in comparison to the great contribution that you have made to this forum.

Good luck with your application process, although I don't think you will need luck. Also, when the adcoms ask for references, in addition to testaments of your professional colleagues, just steer them to this forum, it will serve to testify to your personal side too.

Congrats again.

1. last week, I focused only on OG11 and did almost all Verbal in order to keep feeling of real GMAT.
2. I focused on "active" reading technique (Gin's technique: not skip, restate, exaggerate) that gave me confidence in RC and CR. I was surprised by my improving up to 95% in RC.
3. I worked on concentration: one-on-one fight with each questions like in a video game. It works.

I’m really happy not only because I got 750, but also because it is very important not to give up and work hard.

I’m pretty well in mathematics, because I finished physical mathematical school, have Master of Science, Master of Finance, and PhD in Nanotechnology (Physics).

Verbal
4. RC. I tried two methods: Rhyme’s (skipping) and Gin’s (very careful reading). Both methods are good but Gin’s was exactly what I needed. I read slowly, but usually answered without return to text. I used “active” reading, restated each paragraph in own exaggerated words and always tried to answer tone and prime purpose questions before reading real questions.

P.S. By the way, my 1-year son started to walk a few weeks ago :) Be positive!


You are education-certificates hunter. MSc, MF, PHD, and now MBA :( . I wonder when you will stop :-D


Rhyme is good method, however, I seem to be fit with careful reading method. I can not find GIN's technique in our website. Walker, can you show me pls!

BTW, the girl in red is quite cute :). Who is that?

That's awesome that you have a group picture like that. I've read several posts how new people are amazed that this truly a "community" and it really is.

I guess the labels on the picture really do away with anonymity. I'm not anonymous anymore either....my avatar is a self-portrait.
