I'm new on the forum and just started my GMAT prep today. I got a 770 diagnostic on the first GMATPrep sample test (50 Quantitative, 46 Verbal). Obviously the written questions weren't scored. I found that I worked right until the end for the Quantitative, but had almost 30 minutes leftover for the Verbal. I'm planning on taking the exam in the first week of August.
- What books/resources can I use to practice harder questions?
- Any recommended strategies to manage my Verbal time better?
- Should I just take the exam now? How much variance is there in scores between practice and testday?
I've already bought the MGMAT books
and the 3 OGs to arrive next week.
Well, 770 on GMAT Prep without any prep is unimaginable.. If I were you I would take another test to just validate this score and If i score another 770/780, then I would just sit at home for a week (leave from office) .. take a test daily ( MGMAT + GMAT Prep) nd revise the answer solutions throughly .. further on my 3rd/4th/5th day leave I would book a date of 2 days later (7th/8th day from today) ..
You really dont need to delay it till August.. Even if you dont want to take it now.. then 1 month is enuf...
P.S -> I also took the GMAT Prep today and scored a 700 ...nd I am targetting 1st week of July ... Target score is >=760 ...
I was born intelligent but education ruined me !
