Hi! Everyone,

First of all, GMAT club is a great place to learn, interact and know everything about the dreaded GMAT's.
You guys are doing a great job!

I found this site 2 weeks before I gave my GMAT.

By the way, I just gave my GMAT this Saturday Aug21. I got a very low score and I cannot get over it. I am working and I gave myself just a month to prepare. I guess this wasn't enough.
I cannot accept this defeat...I have to prepare well the next time. I will be asking you guys for suggestions frequently.

It was raining cats and dogs and I am a first time driver. But I managed to make it to the test after getting lost once. (Thank God I started early!)
I was too tensed I guess and I ruined my test. I have been getting a pretty good score on my practice tests...but the score that I got on the actual one, took me in great surprise....I am so sad right now...I just feel that I have lost something big....I have never done this bad in any of my other tests. This was my first competitive exam

...anyways..i think I have to study hard the next time....The essays were not that bad...
Also, I guess I need practice on the CR section. I need a good strategy to study it....
..well...lets see what happens...

One bad day..thats all it is. i think its very important for you to move on and try to do an analysis of what went wrong.

If you can share with us how you prepped, what books, software etc you used.. etc .. we might be able to help you better.

Hang in there buddy

Dear Praetorian,
Thanx for the kind words.
I am getting over the fact that I did badly.

Like many of you said, I should study atleast for 2-3 months.
I guess I did not study enough.

I used Princeton, Barrons and ETS. I practiced all the sample papers.
I even gave sample tests which accompany these books.

Now I need a good study plan. BB has started a new forum for a "Study plan". I think its a great idea. I am going to follow all the adivce. I need to succeed this time.

Since I work full time, I am not able to give a lot of time to study for GMAT's. I have to develop a strategy now. ....

Hi Spring, I'm sorry about your disappointing experience. I would recommend you to read the "GMAT" and "Share your experience" sections as you will find a lot of useful study plans and tips. Also, I would not recommend you to rely on Barron's material too much. I used it and totally hated it. I have yet to hear of someone who liked it :? I would suggest you to use PR, Kaplan and OG. Also, if you can, the ETS paper tests on http://www.mba.com would also be good. Last but not least, participate in the forum as it is definitely the best way to learn and improve your skills. Good luck!

Hey spring23, dont get down on yourself. You have to truly believe that you can do it. Do not question your intelligence or your ability to get over the hump. If it was your first time taking the test dont be too hard on yourself. Just keep your chin up. For inspiration go through the countless posts of people who start in the 500s and get to the 700s.....Imagine your self being successful in the test and have a mental picture of you overcoming the test. Think of how you felt during one of your practice tests when you did good. Dont give up........

regards

Keep your head up...I am in the same case : I scored 570
Just take some time to have a quick break and relax yourself, then come back to it. One test is also the best experience to know exactly how is test is done and what kind of questions you can really find....at least now you know :)

good luck :!:
