On the quant, did you guess at any point ? My problem is that I can solve most of the problems under moderate time pressure but with a 2 minute deadline I mess up 20% of the relatively harder problems.
Guys i would be very much here in this forum becoz it has become a part of my life
Thanks a lot for all ur congrats and wishes...For me any score above 700 was a challenge and i had that feeling deep inside that i am not a 7XX material..So 710 is a pleasing surpirse for me.
dahiya: Thanks buddy..u are just awesome in maths..i liked ur approach in DS...I would suggest u to just take a date and give this beast as ASAP..
Vivek: i really felt so relaxed out there in the exam and that was becoz of ur advice.. If u have not taken the GMAT appointment, take it right away..Moreover you cant score more than 800
..You are close to perfection buddy in SC.
Girish : I just got a 5 litre Bacardi for u
joemama: i am sure you too would kill the beast..You were really an inspirer.
sperumba : Thanks buddy for ur wishes.
TEHCM : Well i found Maths relatively easy than the ETS..I dont know whether it was becoz i prepared well or becoz it was really easy.. The kind of questions that PV shot in plenty were the series question like
Sn=Sn-1 * Sn-2.something something then they wud make a DS out of it like if S4=2 then is S10 +ve or something...i saw these kinds in plenty..
This time the only difference in my approach was that instead of blindly pkugging in numbers, first i saw if i could simplify the DS question... Moreover this time i wasnt afraid of DS as last time, but i still HATE them
As far as Verbal is concerned, i m 100% sure it was tough than last time..All sentences were long.. Agreed that findign errors in long questions is easy but then to scan through 5 choices takes up lot of time.. ETS SC questions were pretty small ones.... CR again was very confusing...I would aways end up with 2 options...ETS CR's were lot easier..RC i thought was easy, the passages subtle and smooth but to my surpise i hardly found a detail question..All the questions that were shot to me were either Central idea/Main idea question or Inference questions or Assumptions(Assumptions in RC's kill u man)..But nothing to worry about..If u have time in ur hand then u can read the passage twice and attack those questions ... Thats what i did and i had to guess on the last 2 becoz had no time left..
lhotseaface: The tips that i can share with you are :
1)The first time when i prepared, i harldy reviewed the questions which i got correct. I thought that since i have got it right the first time i would get it again.. Thats a wrong approach..
Do not select any answer unless u can prove 4 others wrong.. This i learnt from Vivek by his colourful way of marking the wrong options..This forum helped in that...
2)- A score above 750+ requires talent, hard work, luck and that hunger
A score in range of 700 -710 just requires a calm mind..We all have that in us..But when we know we are giving an exam we tend to panick..That really kills the aptitude..The fear forces us to select many wrong answers, the fear forces us to not think but speed up..So getting that positive frame of mind is a must..Last time i panicked, this time i didnt..
helped me..I just noted down the questions which i couldnt get right in my error log
and would review it the next morning..Then would try to find some questions which asked for a similar concept.That way atleast i would try to make sure that i dont do that mistake again..
Thats the only advice i can offer you my friend..Let me know if you need any help ...
