Disappointing GMAT experience, 550 (Q30, V35) [#permalink] New post 22 Sep 2012, 03:30
Hi all,

Just took GMAT test today and got disappointing 550 (Q30, V35).

Two days prior to test, my GMATprep test 2 score was 700 (Q43, V42). No repeats.
Three days prior to test, my GMATprep test 1 score was 660 (Q40, V41). No repeats. Penalty for missing last questions both in Q and V.

I was hoping for the score around 700, but got disappointing 550.
Still trying to understand what went wrong and what I did wrong.

Hi

First thing: People do screw up in the first GMAT exam so don't panic... take it as a learning and prepare harder for the next exam!
I got a 570 in my first gmat when i scoring 720+ in my mock tests! Check out my Debrief:
http://gmatclub.com/forum/570-to-700-my-gmat-journey-133461.html

I have written a post on how to gmat preparations (this is how i did for both the times i wrote the actual exam)
http://gmatclub.com/forum/how-to-start-gmat-preperations-136048.html

For Quant i have written a post on how to improve quant score
http://gmatclub.com/forum/how-to-improve-quant-score-137975.html

How about making a progress chart or error log? I talk about that in how to gmat preparations link shared above.

For practice try grockit.com (its questions are timed... just give it a try and you will know how good it is!)
Also, try gmatclub questions.. gmatclub tag link is
http://gmatclub.com/forum/viewforumtags.php

For Verbal.. can you be more specific where you screwed up? I screwed up in SC and RC i guess and i tried Thursdays with Ron and it helped me a lot!

Last but not the least: have a little faith and believe in urself and the target was NEVER far anyways!

Good Luck!
