Countdown to Monday and take 2 [#permalink] New post 18 Oct 2007, 05:44
So Monday I am taking the test, again. Last go I got a 530 (Q29 V34). Dismal.

But I have drilled on math hard for hours daily.. and feel way more confident. I have bust through all the MGMAT books (sans CR and RC, I am good at those). Also have had my nose in my OG11 book daily.

I feel way better about it but still have a tinge of nerves on the Quant stuff. I have kept and error log and notice radicals and inequalities are iffy. But i am going to relook at the MGMAT books on those. Any suggestions?

I am hoping with my unusual work experience, being a woman will help weigh out any score I get. Looking at top schools, I just do crappy on Standardized tests.

I would be delighted with a 700+ but I wonder how low I can go before I should retake for #3. (ugh paying for that stupid test again pisses me off just to even think about)

Wish me luck, send out good vibes for me on Monday

Good luck Mindy.

Just keep those brain muscles warmed up over the weekend. Remember, stay focused and attack the questions!

Be confident. Don't think about a retake, you won't need it. You have to know that going in. Relax a little before your test. Good luck.

Good luck, I am kind of in the same boat..

My test is Monday, and it's my second time as well.

Last time I took it was July 30th, and got a 550 (35Q/31V)

The last GMATPrep I took last weekend I got...550 (32Q/34V)

:(

Whatever the outcome though, this will be the last time I'll be taking it.

good luck!

Makes me nervous but I will keep trudging on

My first try of GMAT resulted in 510 (Q38/V23), this was late May of this year. I am yet to schedule my next attempt, but my job is so demanding...I am quiting my job in the middle of December to attack GMAT.
Mindy, I wish you good luck on Monday and 700+ score. Remember this is just a test and nothing more, and really it is poor indicator of our true capabilities. Good luck.
