Completely destroyed by a 530 [#permalink] New post 16 Sep 2011, 23:12
Ok so here goes my de-brief regarding my first attempt of my GMAT. I studied for 4 months, did atleast 6 to 8 practise tests in simulated situations. My primary source of practise materials were the MGMAT strategy guides and the OG. I scored between 590-650, and a week before the actual test took the GMAT prep tests and got a 610 and 650. Not sure what really happened on the actual test day, and honestly I knew before the test I wasn't gonna get a good score because the questions were just very very easy. I can't believe I got a 530 and plan to give the test again towards the end of November or beginning december. I'm thinking of taking the Veritas prep course which is 7 days long and 6 hours every day. I don't have the official break up of the questions but would really need your advise on the way forward. Cheers

It was certainly your one bad day. Dont over analyse the thoughts. Clear your mind and brace again.

My only advice to you will be to give fewer tests and practice more material. If possible go for just 4 tests before the retest.

Best of Luck.
