This is hard to believe. There was no question on Counting topics at all?


Lots of overlapping sets, but no combinations/permutations!

Amazing score Kevincan!

I think you would have got a verbal 51 had you not left one unanswered. GMAtprep too penalizes heavily on missed questions.

You said RC was tough -- Could you please elaborate? Tougher than the last few passages of OG?
Why were the RC passages tough- Was it because of long passages with obtuse content or because of tricky inference questions with close choices.

Thanks!

Congratulations Kevin! I mean, it isn't surprising is it? ;) But it's still a good job that needs to be commended. :-D

What we should figure out is how to transfer the special knowlege and skills from your head to the others here in the forum. ;) And you are doing wonderfully at that. Thanks. :)

I think this deserves a dance anyways. ;)

:wave :woohoo :wave

I was right on the mark regarding the AWA score. I wish I were a faster typer. Has anyone heard how important this score is? I'm not applying to any B-schools, but it would be nice to what weight it is given by admissions officers so that I give the right message to my students, many of whom score higher than I did on the AWA. Embarrassing, but true!

A score of less than 4 will be more than enough to alert the adcoms but any score greater than 4 will not add anything extra to one's profile. B-school just want to make sure that you have written the application essays yourself.
