Clueless about the gameplan for future; Please suggest a way [#permalink] New post 12 Jun 2008, 13:42
Hello to the Organizers of this great GMATclub forum,


I gave my GMAT and got unbelievably low score. I am very surprised with my score.
I got a raw score of 49 in quant and unbelievable 29 in verbal. poor verbal got me down to 620
i still cannot understand how that happened. my sent corrn and RC Qns were getting tougher. RC was real tough.
so, i thot i was doing well.

my raw verbal scores in the manhattan practice tests and the GMAT CD were hovering between 37-39. i was expecting atleast 680-700 range.

i had practiced about 300-400 hundred Qns from the 1000 SC and 1000 CR list and was pretty confident that I was doing good in test too since Qns were getting difficult.


I am clueless about the gameplan for future.
how do I improve my score; I need atleast 700+ and am ready to put in the effort.

just do not how to go about it.


Please help me untangle the mysteries of GMAT.


1] do I go to a private tutor?
Someone told me abt http://www.790gmat.com
I talked with the tutor; I just cannot decide whether it will be worth the time to go to San Francisco [since I live in Sunnyvale, about an hour away from SF]

I am willing to spend money if a good tutor can help me to attack my verbal weaknesses.


2] do I completely do 1000 RC, CR and SC collection?
and then go to a private tutor with my specific weaknesses.


3]
How do I find a study partner for verbal ?
I can help out with the math part.


4]
In my retake of GMAT prep, I got 680, 670, 720, 730, and 750
My MGMAT scores were 680, 700, 680, 720 and 730
So, I was very disappointed to see my real score.





My confidence has shaken.
I just want to go next time with a confidence that I will surely get 700+ score.
Please feel free to give me any suggestions you can think of.

Hey, chintanpurohit, you're doing well! As I see you live in US so that u should manage verbal. Your quant is pretty good. Maybe it was not your lucky day? Maybe you could arrange the next attempt in 3-4 weeks, rest for a week, and then try again to get your V42?

Yeah, I think so, your mood in the D-day is very important also. I think GmatPrep scores is accurate indicator! Relax and take another try!

good luck!
