Advice...? GMAT in one week. [#permalink] New post 12 May 2005, 08:21
I'm taking the GMAT in one week and I need some advice.

The RC stuff and the verbal questions are the easiest for me. I'm not perfect in them but pretty good. I could improve and that would be pretty easy.

All the math junk is pretty hard for me. I need the most work on it. I took a Kaplan test and got a 590 - 38% in Quantitative and 76% in Verbal. This doesn't count the two essay questions which will be very easy for me. I only need around 600-650.

Where should I focus my efforts? Should I shoot for a 90%+ in Verbal and leave my Quantitative low (which would be easy for me to do), or try to get a 50%+ in Quantitative and keep my Verbal where it is?

Advice? Thanks.

PS The Kaplan 590 is a 700+ adjusted in the gmatclub estimator, so maybe I don't have much to worry about if I only need a 600 or so.

Hi,

I believe that most of the schools are looking for a balanced GMAT score and that should be a good enough reason for you to try and improve your quant fundamentals....

Plus, I think you get a better score in GMAT if you perform equally good in both the sections (i am not 100% confirmed about this)...for example, i think you will get a better score if you have something like Q - 60% and V - 60 % than if you have a score like Q - 30% and V - 90%

maybe somebody can confirm that...

cheers!

I would focus on the Q section since schools might suspect your ability to handle quantitative coursework if you are at the 38th percentile.
