Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
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...
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........
hey even i had the same experience,dont worry be calm and take it easy
next time u will be familiar with the test centre environment,just keep practicing and one fine day write it as if u wrote some practice test'
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
