Studied for about 3 months using Kaplan material and still couldn't get over 410. What the hell is with this test.

Man I feel this test is impossible. Anyway I have rescheduled for Sep 27th. I went throught the new OG and had a pretty good success rate, but still I'm missing some G-d damn thing.

Anyway if anybody has any recommendations, I would love to hear them.

THX,

wiseguy

What has been ur practice test scores overall ? Did u get close to the avg score in Powerpreps ? Also what is ur verbal, quant split ? Ur score indicates that u mite have some fundamentanls to take care off. Knowing ur weak areas and getting the fundamental areas right should be the first step.

wiseguy, it is just a test...I mean it will not decide wether you're sucessfull or not. so you should also think about this. It's just a path for those who want to do a MBA like me but it is not a reflection of your intelligence or ability. Just Math and English.

However, you should give us your split results so that we can understand the final result. You should also explain how you are working, studying and how long time did you study until now. With those answers, we may be able to help you.

Don't quit the test, you just need to find the way to get it right. :wink:
I've taken the test twice and my first attempt was 550, a little more later but nothing convincing. And I am still here. And I still have hopes. :P

Thanks guys [#permalink] New post 29 Aug 2005, 20:17
My split was Q 29/V18. Obviously from these numbers, I need to work on my verbal.

Any other guidance, would be most appreciated.

Just to let you guys know a little about me. I don't work so I can focus my full attention to the test.

All I need is to be shown the way.

THX,

wiseguy

I'd suggest you to concentrate on Q section and get as much as you can (target Q40). Only then work on verbal.

It's no use if you have Q 29/V29

Good luck :wink:

Hi Wise Guy....

I shud say ...I WAS in the same boat......

I had a terrible GMAT score a month back....

I agree with Bono...try and improve your Quant score and then attack your verbal.....

Quant is easy to improve , comapred to Verbal....

get a 40+ in Quant and then try for Verbal....

First and foremost...get the Kaplan or PR Maths workbook...

go through all the problems...after finishing that book..if u think any basics things still to be done....make sure u clear them....

and then jump on to the Kaplan and PR books and Kaplan prac CD.....and finally give a Quant test ..to C where you are.....

ITS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO LEARN THE BASICS FOR QUANT BEFORE AND THEN PRACTISE ,PRACTISE ,PRACTISE !!!!
and your advantage is that u can devote 100% of your time on GMAT..unlike me and most of the ppl here who work full time...


GOOD LUCK...

Never Give up..
