Not to be an asshole, but does it makes sense that everyday there's like 10 different people scoring 750+?! I'm not too sure I believe a lot of them "debriefs" but that's just me. If you want to convince me, take a pic of your unofficial score, and post it. A picture is worth a thousand words. end of story. gg kthx.


If you ask me, it doesn't matter whether or not you believe someone's score or not. If the test taker has posted a reasonable debrief and someone finds a mentioned strategy, little nugget of info, or whatever else to be useful, then the test taker has contributed, and the reader has benefited. No one is here has to prove anything to you.


ok kid. i can't stand ignorance. you go ahead and hold it in during a test and lemme know how that works for you. now you can gtfo now thanks.

You know, call it coincidence or whatever, but if you've read my debrief, I mentioned that my proctor screwed up and made me skip my break. I didn't REALLY have to go pee, but the urge was definitely there throughout the whole exam. I ended doing pretty well with a 760. Do note, that I did a little more poorly than I thought I could have on verbal which corresponds to the end of the exam. Take from this what you will. Just putting it out there!

Hey man, to each his or her own, no need to be nasty. It might work for some, might not work for others. Won't know until you try it. I do better on Reading Comprehension when I scribble a completely illegible version of RC passages. Some people may think it's a waste of time, but it got me a good score.

While I always enjoy a good, civil debate on the forums, a certain level of negative energy has creeped in here; that's not what GMATClub wants to promote.

Thread locked.
