Advice to improve GMAT score [#permalink] New post 01 Mar 2007, 11:20
Hi...

I need some advice to improve my GMAT Score...I have already made 2 attempts, scores were...

1st Attempt - Dec'06
570 (45Q; 23V; AWA - 5.0) - with very lil preparation

2nd Attempt - Feb'07
570 (44Q; 25V; AWA - 5.5) - took the test hurriedly to meet the deadlines of apps...

Given the above scores I didnt apply to any of the B-schools and specially when I want to get into top 10. I am planning to apply for Fall 2008 intake and now that I have sufficient time (atleast I believe so.. :-D )...can someone help me with the approach I should adopt as I do not want to take any chances this time coz...

Also what books should I refer and is there any prep course which could join to help my cause....

Can you give us a little detail of how you studied for the other two? What books did you use, how much time did you set aside daily? The more detail you give would definitely help pinpoint where you may need to make improvements.

Actually, I would say that if your target is top 10, you need to move both your Q and V scores up. The top schools like to see 80th percentile for both sections (not a hard and fast rule), and a 44Q=73%.

I recommend sticking with the official materials, which include the Official Guide as well as the Verbal and Quantitative supplements, and the GMATprep software. The retired paper tests are a great source of real questions as well.

check out manhattanreview.com -- they helped me immensely. studying for a big test like the gmat, i found, is similar to lifting weights. when lifting if you do the same exercises every time you lift, your muscles will adapt and you will eventually plateau. you need to keep them challenged by doing different routines all the time. i took a course from manhattan review and realized that my study routine wasn't challenging me enough. once i completed the course i had all these different weapons to challenge myself and my scores improved dramatically as a result.
