Anyone has similar exprience? [#permalink] New post 15 Oct 2013, 06:30
Hi,

Since the last 7 months I`ve been studying GMAT everyday.I finished all Manhattan books and other course books several times.I took all OG13 and Verbal second edition tests. Everything was ok before taking the first mock exam.

3 weeks ago,for the first time I took the free version of Kaplan mock, unfortunately, when I was question No 26 of math,my time ran out,it was really devastating;since then I`ve been working on my time management and today I`ve taken the free version of kaplan cat again.
I was able to finish math section at appropriate time and while it seemed to me that verbal questions were easier than OG13 questions and I had about 6 minutes after answering the last question of verbal part, my result was shocking.
I got 570... :(

I`ve solved more than 1000 verbal questions so far and I don`t know why the result of verbal part was much lower than math,while during the exam I thought vice verca.

I have 24 days to take the actual exam and even though my target is getting 700 score, I`m utterly frustrated.

I don`t know whether I should postpone my exam date (I`ve registered), I don`t know why while one of my strength is sentence correction questions and I answered more than 70% questions of OG13 and verbal second edition book correctly, in Kaplan exam I answered just 5 of 14 questions correctly.
I don`t know how reliable kaplan mock is and I don`t know what I have to do except taking more mock exams.

Since I live in an underdeveloped country, I can`t afford commercial mock exams and my only chance is free mock exams of Manhattan,Veritas and gmat prep.

So professional guys please help and advise me. you know what? I`ve read lots of books,practiced numerous questions but the result of today`s test was really gloomy.

There is no gmat instructor in my country,so your comments will help me substantially.

1- Have you tried gmat prep mock, if not go for it.

2- Its not about number of questions you have gone through, its more about studying productively. If you know where you are lacking then your work is easy, if you dont know probably you are not reviewing properly.
