fed up with GMAT? [#permalink] New post 24 Aug 2005, 17:00
Hello everybody,
I have been triyng to gain confidence by solving as many questions as possible. but there is no progress. In fact, there is only regress. The more I solve practice tests, the faster I get exhausted, bored and indifferent. I've never scored above 630 on Kaplan CATs. I understand that all people have a limit. Does it mean that I've reached my highest level - the ~600-640?
I need at least 650 to get accepted. I have 2 month. But it is becoming harder and harder to force myself to study.
Could you share your personal experience, how you forced yourselfes to study when you were fed up with GMAT?

Thank you,
regards.

I have heard from many people that you should add 100 points to you kaplan score and that will be your real GMAT score. Do not take you kaplan score more seriously than required. How are you doing on the prep?

Dilshod:

I believe that you are at a point where you should give a thought to the question "why MBA?" - when you have a clear passion for creating a difference - the passion is going to drive you to prepare.
Think about what you would do without an MBA from a good university - how different is your life going to be? Are you willing to "get along" with your current status? (I used the above questions whenever I got tired of the prep)

GMAT score is a function of your fundamentals, hardwork and your frame of mind for the 4hrs of the exam.

I was in your shoes more than once, and I understand the frustration, but as a great sage from India once said.."Arise, Awake and stop not till the goal is reached" - gather all your energy and prepare to take the test head-on.
