Best GMAT Strategies for a newbie [#permalink] New post 06 Feb 2007, 05:30
Good morning,

I took the GMAT last week, and I was pretty dissapointed with my score. Before the test I had only spent three weeks formally studying for the test using the GMAT OG 11th and the Kaplan book. I need to increase my score by 150 points and I am planning on taking within the next month.

My major areas for improvements are: RC, and Data sufficiency in Quant.

I am looking forward to your reponses.

Thanks, JL

For DS, I'm going over basic math. A lot of the questions I do poorly on have to do with radicals, etc. From trolling around here, a lot of people say that getting a fundamental understanding of the basics provides the best ROI as far as study time goes.

One short note: 1 month or less seems to be not enought to improve 150 points. I'd be careful with re-scheduling until you are confortably getting your target score (+20/30 points) in practice tests (GMATprep is a good predictor of actual scores).

Taking GMAT several times does not have a neutral effect: even when schools consider only your highest scores, they do look at all scores.

So: 550 700
is much better than: 550 560 700
or any other progression of more than 2 scores.

Hope it helps. L.
