Hey Everyone,

New to posting but I have really learned a lot over the last few months from others' experiences posted on these forums.

I just took the GMAT this week, and am thrilled with my score. I got a 760 (99%) with a 46V (99%) and a 49Q (85%). I am traditionally weaker on quant, but I do well on the more difficult questions that seem to emphasis logic and reasoning over math rules. I think I got a little lucky early in the section and got to the difficult questions quickly.

My ace in the hole however was how I approached verbal. A I had been scoring well on practice tests but the sentence correction questions were really giving me trouble and holding back my score. I had planed to just leave that be and focus on improving my math, however I stumbled upon a blog post by Zeke at GMAT Pill and it changed my strategy. He did some eye opening analysis that showed a strong score on verbal was worth dispraportionately more than a strong score on quant. He showed that by raising my verbal I could put up a big overall score with a not so big quant score. I used his sentence correction pill and it turned me into a master. I ended up finishing the verbal section with 25 minutes left and finishing in the 99%. My overall score went up from 650 before I took his course to 700s after I took it and a 760 on test day.

Here is the e-mail I sent Zeke after I took the test. I want to post it here and let everyone know how valuable his course was because I really owe a lot of my success to the analyses he did on verbal vs. quant scores and his sentence correction pill.

Hey Zeke,

110 points!! and it wouldn’t have happened if I hadn’t read your post about the importance of a strong verbal score and done your sentence correction pill. I’m am now one of your biggest disciples.

Thanks,

John

Many congrats, John!

With the flurry of 760 scores in the past couple of weeks, I think it is possible that the 99% could move to 770 in future!:)

Of course, I understand that there could very well be reporting bias ie hgher scorers are more inclined to post their scores than others.

Cheers

Santanu

I agree that GMATpill has some very good material. I had just seen one advice "cut the fluff", and I can testify that it's an amazing way to shorten the sentence.

I didn't take the course, but it would be great if there is something like a preview for GMATpill.

@Someone

The cut the fluff advice was an important part how I changed the way I attacked the questions. His explanations of common errors are great, but the best part of his program is how it teaches you to move through the sentence and answer choices. Knowing typical errors is only the first component of answering these questions, even more important is how you apply that knowledge so you don't get disoriented among the six different frases and or sentences that make up these questions.

[quote="gmatpill"]Congratulations, John! And thanks for posting!

We did do a screenshot of your email so thought we'd post it up here:

Dear GMAT Pill instructor, I purchased your product and sent a mail to Zeke regarding a RC query several weeks ago but I never got a reply. I am not sure if the 24/7 support accurately his promise to his customers. Additionally I wanted to inquire further about purchasing just the DS section and again didnt get a reply. Please can you help me? I guess with the good reviews i have read thus far, I'd like to think that I would be afforded the same level of service.

many thanks
