This was just a debrief and it was titled the same way my other documents were. As for being analytical, it's not necessarily just an inherent skill and by sharing my debrief the idea was not to assure anyone of a 760, but rather talk about what worked for me, so perhaps the reader could find it useful too. Please look at things in proper context before just posting whatever comes to your mind.

Thanks

Just out of pure curiosity: Can you repost one of these 3D-questions that you had in the quant section? I've never encountered one of these questions in my preparation.

I can't. That would violate the non-disclosure agreement we signed.

@Whiplash
Just loved reading your post. It flows like a river and the colors make the debrief appealing. :) Need a word of advice. How difficult are the questions on the actual GMAT vis-a-vis those in the Official Guides ?

I didn't do any of the math questions in the OG so I can't speak for those. I only did CR and SC from the OG. I thought CR was comparable to the tougher ones in the book while SC was trickier. Like two close answers and you pick based on style type stuf. The RC was short but lots of inferences.

Great, thanks for the input. If the SCs on the actual GMAT are trickier than those in the OG,then I better not get complacent .:-D By the way, which all schools are you planning to apply to ?

Congrats!

Based on your own assessment, I want to understand certain points

"Though I had the entire MGMAT series, I barely touched any of the books. To me, the biggest value came from the CATs. Their tests are outstanding, and in fact, I felt that my Quant section was pretty similar to the MGMAT stuff than to GMAT Prep"

Are you saying you used MGMAT CAT prep questions? I am planning on buying some material for Quant section (DS and ?)

- I just purchased SC Grail based on review I got here for Sentence correction.

-Already purchased PowerScore for Critical reasoning too

-If you want to suggest taking a refresher class for Quant, what will you suggest among the service providers: Kaplan, VERITAS etc

I am working full time but would going for my graduate program early next year. I will love and appreciate your insight

Great. You belong to that place! I am using the CR document you've made and was really in awe of you and thinking about the kind of progress you're gonna make in your life ahead. All the best! :)

Thank you! It's not about a matter of pride in applying to HBS. It's more about fit with the timescale I am looking at. :) And the 2+2 program is the only one of it's kind (Yale Silver Scholars is a counterpart for seniors, but I'd rather not go into B-School straight out of UG)

The 2+2 is an excellent program. One of my cousins is also applying for it this year. Good luck!
