Test Date: June 1, 2012 (although I may have to push this back if I don't start scoring 700+ on my practice exams)
Target Score: 730
Practice Test Scores and Materials: Mid 600s. OG 12th Ed, Verbal and Quant Review 2nd Ed, 8 Strategy Guides.
Any Last Minute Questions: With a month left, I want to start eating better and getting into physical shape (After 4-5 weeks of studying, I still find it difficult to study more than 3-4 hours at a time. I feel like I'm wasting a lot of study time while taking "breaks"). Any tips in this area?
Any Last Minute Advice: You have to be discipline. Each night before sleeping, I write down a list of things that I must complete before sleeping the next night on my iPhone. Throughout the day, I check each task off. This helps. Again I know that I can't study more than 3-4 hours at a time effectively so I try to spread it out before work, during my work breaks, and after work. Do not waste a day of studying. Stay motivated and remind yourself every day which programs you want to have a good shot at.

Any Last Minute Advice:


I started preparing for SC in last two weeks. Once I finish studying a grammar topic, I take 20 questions of consisting of all difficulty level. I practice the first 10 and then check the results and then go over all the question I got wrong and understand why I got them wrong, break for 20 minutes and then practice the rest 10 questions. This has helped me to improve my SC score greatly. It is scientifically proven that revising what you studied right away helps to retain the material. I hope this helps

Practice Test Scores and Materials: Scored a 700 last time, taking Kaplan Advanced Anywhere class, OG 12th edition, OG Math, OG Verbal, GMAT 800
Any Last Minute Questions:
Any Last Minute Advice: I'm loving the class. 90% I could've learned on my own but there are some gems in it, but honestly the biggest benefit is it forces me to sit down and do tons of practice problems to keep up with class twice a week. Also the way the quiz bank is organized really helps focus on your weak areas. Hopefully it pays off in my score.

Retaking GMAT on 4 June in Indore. The first attempt yielded 700, with 35 V. My normal GMAT Prep attempts were 730, 750 and 770. So, I decided to give another shot ONE day before the change. I bought the "Expansion pack" from GMAC, which gave me hundreds of extra questions (including IR, which I hopefully won't need :wink: ).
Thus far, love the new GMATPrep 2.1 software, but the only drawback is that RCs don't come in order! Have to read the entire passage for one question! That's it!

Test Date: 25th May 2012
Target Score: 750
Practice Test Scores and Materials: GMATPrep1 590 (given a year ago) , GMATPrep1 710 (given today)
Any Last Minute Questions: Need guidance in taking the decision to give GMAT in 2 weeks
Any Last Minute Advice: Looking for advice for myself ;-)

This slightly off the thread but i may join the June club :-(

I have been preparing for GMAT for last 3 months very seriously.
I have taken the date for Exam in April for 25th May.

I am yet to finish all the practice sets i posses e.g. LSAT RC, LSAT CR, latest Quant etc but felt comfortable to try the FULL GMATPrep1 test i.e. i sat for 4 hours and wrote the Argument and Issue essays too. (I had attempted it approximately an year before with 590 score and didn't dare touch again )

My score is:

Quant: 48 (12 Q wrong)
Verbal: 41 (8 Q wrong)
Score: 710

Please find the attached screen shot for more detail score.
There was hardly any repeat Q for Quant and i did guess few Q to finish it in time but in the end i had 4+ minutes to spare and the 37th Q was so easy that i solved it in 5 seconds.

There were many repeat Q's in verbal from the practices content and even 1 RC Passages was also a repeat. Though i solved CR (no wrong) and RC (2 wrong) very confidently, i struggled in SC (6 wrong) I had 4+ minutes to spare in verbal section and the last 2-3 Q's were very tough.

More details about the Test:

Out of 12 Wrong Quant Q's
6 PS; 1Q: silly mistake, 3Q: no idea how to solve and guessed after some try, 2Q Guessed after spending around 3 min
6 DS, 4Q: Silly mistakes, 1Q guessed after a 3 minute of try, 1Q No idea how to solve or approach

Out of 8 Wrong Verbal Q's
0 CR
2 RC, 1Q hurried answer without using PoE 1Q wrong inference
6 SC

I am planning to give GMATPrep2 tomorrow.

I am on leave for next one week too and can extend it for one more week. Should i give the final push now and give the exam on 25th as scheduled or reschedule it for late in June to have some more to practice and to get acquaint with IR section. I am in no hurry to apply for a college as my primary goal as of now is to get a good GMAT score

Looking forward for your review comments.

I still have 2 more day to get into the 7 day range and can save $200 or spend $50 more.
I have already rescheduled 25th may to 01 June once and had spend $50 :-( :-(
GMAC is making real money from this rescheduling and retaking stuff :-( :-(

I gave a full MGMAT CAT 1 yesterday and try to have conditions similar to Test Day and Center and realized that i may need to reschedule again

======================
Quant 45 77 % Review
Verbal 38 85 % Review
Total 690 91%

Following are my findings:

Quant
PS 11 Wrong, 8Q of 700 to 800 level and 3Q of 600 to 700 level, (3 Silly calculation mistakes)

DS 6 Wrong, 3Q of 700 800 level, 2Q of 600 700 level, 1Q 300 500 level, (2 traps, 1 Silly Mistakes of choosing wrong answer on screen)

Verbal
SC (3-4 repeat Q) 4Q wrong, 3Q of 700 800 level, 1Q of 600 700 level
In SC, 2Q wrong due to lack of concept clarity e.g. using would or will, Infinitive or Gerund as a subject , 1Q for Meaning Clarity, 1Q is due to a SC trap I was not not able to identify the SC trap of correcting the mistake but inserting a new error in wrong answer choice.

CR (3-4 Repeat Q) 5Q wrong , 3Q of 700 800 level, 1Q of 600 700 level, 1Q of 300 500 level,
I took 3 min and 45 second for each of the two wrong Q

RC (1 Repeat RC passage and 3 new RC passages)
In RC, 6Q wrong, 3Q Inference (All 3 700 800 level), 3Q Specific Detail (Anchor Phrase) (2Q 600 700 level and 1 Q 700 800 level) I took 5 min to answer a wrong Q ad 5 min to answer a Right Q, Its criminal , i should have guessed and move on after 2 min but didn't realize that its already 4-5 minutes as i was ahead of time as per y mile stones and thought of sparing a minute or two extra

======================

I feel that i am not prepared and i should not hurry for giving GMAT soon.
Somewhere within myself i am feeling it but not accepting it due to false sense of satisfaction from the Prep Tests.

I still have issues in:

1) Pacing the test specially in Quant
2) Accuracy in stress and time constraints ( Without time constraints i am scoring 100% in RC/CR of even at 700 800 level but in exam it reduced to 50% and 60%, I was able to do the RC 100% correct post exam)
3) Concept Clarity in SC is still an issue on top of it my not so good Vocab causing issues instrictly Meaning Clarity SC problems.
4) CR Mimic the argument and Strengthen questions are still an issue

Some general stuff e.g.
What is the ideal time to stop finding answer to a CR Q and move with a guess?
How to find that I am taking more than 2 minutes?
I understand pacing will improve with more practice but realization doesn't come very efficiently in the practice exam. I don't think looking at watch after every Q is a good practice?

Test Date: June 2, 2012
Target Score: 700-730
Practice Test Scores and Materials: Mid-high 600s on 4 CATs. MGMAT for base understanding. Some practice problems out of Verbal and Quant Review 2nd Ed. A little work out of OG12.
Any Last Minute Questions: I'm not sure where to go anymore. I feel like I won't just "get it" anymore on SC. I figure what I know now will be what I know next week. Unlike Q, when the CAT explains why I got some 700-800 SC questions wrong I just don't get it. Any advice? I think I'm bordering right below 700 and I really need to raise my V to make it.
Any Last Minute Advice: I'm a first timer so I'm not sure what advice I could provide.
