Do I have a chance ? If yes, please guide [#permalink] New post 05 May 2014, 05:07
Hi Experts,

I have been studying GMAT since Dec-13 and gave my exam on 22-Apr. Following was my score across various CAT's I had taken.

No. Date ----------- CAT Name ----------------Score------IR----Quant----Vebal
1 21-Dec-13 ---- GMAT Prep Test 1 (Blind)--550--------5-----36-------- 29
2 7-Feb-14------ Kaplan Free CAT 1---------610--------1-----NA--------NA
3 14-Feb-14---- MGMAT Free CAT 1---------560--------2.5---41--------28
4 22-Mar-14---- GMAT Prep Test 1 (Rpt)---650--------8-----46--------34
5 29-Mar-14---- GMAT Tutor Economist----630---------------45--------35
6 5-Apr-14------ GMAT Prep Test 2--------- 640--------8-----47--------31
7 12-Apr-14---- MGMAT Free CAT 1-------- 640--------3-----45--------33
8 17-Apr-14 ---- GMAT Prep Test 2 (Rpt)---730--------8-----48--------41

I was hoping to get a respectable score around 680 on the real test but what I got was shattering to say the least. Actual GMAT Score -

Verbal - 34/ 70 %
Quant - 39/ 46 %
Total - 600/ 62 %
AWA - 5.0/ 60 %
IR - 1/ 0 %

For some reason I had the impression that I was better in Quant than in Verbal but the results were opposite. Also, I had finished Quant section almost 8 min ahead of time. During the break I had the feeling that either I have done too well or too bad. Unfortunately later was true :( !

I have also attached my error log covering majority of the problems I had worked and reworked these problems but all in vain. I have done OG13 twice, MGMAT books once and Kaplan book once. Need your advice if I should re-take GMAT. If yes, how much time I should spend on the prep and what are the things I need to focus upon.

PS - I had stopped thinking @ GMAT since last 2 weeks but mustered courage to post this query today.

Thanks,
Epex

Hey Epex,
Of-course you can!! -- I did it (check out my debrief: http://gmatclub.com/forum/broken-shackles-600-to-170870.html)
For now it seems you need to concentrate more on Math. I suggest you take some time to strengthen the basics. GMATClub math book, MGMAT math guides & Kaplan workbook are good guides.

Then try and figure out alternate methods for OG questions. You need to ask - did I solve that in the most efficient way. As an example take a look at OG13 PS#182(Photography Dealer) -> Most likely if you use algebra to solve this one - you will end up taking 4 minutes, but if you are able to apply wt. avg then this question can be solved under a minute.

Lastly
Use GCLUB math tests to hone ur skills. They are tougher and great for building those math muscles.

Also keep track of content-area ur having issues with.

Let me know how it goes.

Thanks Rohan for your encouraging words. I have started my prep again from today and will work through the weak areas and hope to do better in my 2nd attempt.
