Hello to everyone.
I appeared for the GMAT this past Monday and was surprised to find the GMAT much harder than any other prep. tests that I had given during my preparation for the GMAT. The PR, POWERPREP, and especially the KAPLAN
tests on the CD are a joke in front of the actual GMAT. I am not trying to scare anyone, but at least this is how I feel. The fourth question that I got on my Quant. was one of the hardest prob. questions that I have ever encountered in my life; this given my two engineering degrees from a top 10 eng. school in the USA. The prob. question threw me off and I had to guess the last 10-12 questions on my Q section. Unfortunately, due to confidentiality reasons I cannot post the dreary prob. question.
After seeing my actual GMAT score (480) I almost wanted to suicide and not be part of this world, since the lowest score I got using the prep. tests was 540 (kaplan
) and the highest was 720. I am not sure what to do and how to study given my pathetic performance? I have exhausted all of the best material available for the GMAT prep., namely, the OG (I repeated the DS, SC, and CR twice), Kaplan
, and PR.
Has anyone found the KAPLAN course
, one that is offered in the class and costs ~$1500, to be of any help? I have registered for the course out of desperation. I do not want to give up and live the rest of my life with an ugly 480 on my GMAT.
Can any one please give me some advice on what should I do?
