This is my first post in GMAT club. I have been following the forum for more than a month, took many free tests available here too.
I'll keep it short and sweet and please bear with my silly questions if any.
Took GMAT today and highly disappointed with 550 (Q42, V24)
[though I like palindrome's but I will hate that one for my whole life
I have been preparing for GMAT over a couple of months and these have been my mock scores -
MGMAT1 - 650 (Q47,V32)
MGMAT2 - 640 (Q47,V31)
MGMAT3 - 700 (Q47,V32)
MGMAT4 - 660 (Q43,V37)
MGMAT5 - 710 (Q48,V38)
MGMAT6 - 680 (Q48,V34)
GMAT Prep 2.1.79 -
Exam 1 - 610 (Q49,V23)
Exam 2 - 640 (Q48,V30)
All above with AWA and IR
MGMAT5, MGMAT6 and GMAT Prep 2 were the recent ones before the exam.
Materials Followed - OG12
, Manhattan - SC,RC & CR Guides, Aristotle Bible for CRDefinitely reappearing in a couple of months
I have some quick questions now -
1. I never had such terrible score in any of my mocks and specially V24 is disgusting looking at my mocks. Though it is said that GMAT Prep are the closest to the actual exam but there also I scored at least 600+. I admit that I got little nervous in my maths section but didn't expect Q42 in rarest of my dreams. So what should be the strategy now, should I stick to my material and dissect my weak points using the same material or any extra resources will help ???
2. I had seen somewhere in the forum that members were getting lower score than MGMAT's so now the doubt comes on the credibility of these exams, should I purchase some more of these or look out elsewhere ??
3. Very basic query about re-taking GMAT. When we apply for the first time with new score to any of the schools, which were also chosen to be sent the GMAT scores in earlier exams. The school admin people also take the previous scores into consideration ??
Please Respond.. Need some quick feedback to make my strategy for the next exam.
Many Thanks !!
