First attempt - 670 [#permalink] New post 13 Dec 2004, 19:14
I joined this forum about a while ago, and browse a lot more than I post. But this forum has been extremely helpful with improving my math, and this section in particular had helped...Reading other people's experiences gave me a lot of confidence, so I hope my post helps..

I didn't break the 7** mark ( MAybe next time)...Score 670 Q(42), V(40)....

I studied for about two months and focused on quant 'cos I hadn't done any math in years...Used Kaplan and the OG...And of course this forum to supplement my math...Thanks to whoever wrote the combinations and probability tutorial on this site..They helped a bunch..

Like others have said, keeping your cool is crucial during the test... I saw 3 combinations and probability questions, and quite a number of roots, powers, and geometry questions...

By the time I got to Verbal, I felt like quitting the test :shock: ( not enough sleep the nite before)...Got 4 RC's, CR questions were easy, but got sidetracked by some SC questions.Unfortunately I can't compare the verbal to the OG or really to Kaplan.....since my math was poor when I started out I always just took the quant part of tests, and left out the verbal....I did the pp tests, and the verbal was comparable in difficulty to what I saw on the exam.....

I'd like to say a huge thanks to Praetorian, gayathri, Paul, and venksune for answering my questions in record time ( even tho' I know you must have wondered why I posted such easy questions)...You can say I'm not mathematically inclined... :-D

Anyway, thanks again, I really benefited a lot from this website, and I wish everyone good luck.

you are welcome Seyi. We owe the probability and combinations tutorial on the website to our members, gravedigger and stolyar.

I dont know if you want to take the test again, but i think you should try. your verbal score is great. I think if you spend some time on the math forum each day, you can really improve. Also, we have archives 13 Math Challenges available. Many members have told us that those are very helpful and i am sure they will be helpful to you too.

You are at Q42. The difficult part comes in when you are trying to go from a 47-48 to a 50-51. If you think you can do better, you should try. Also, if your strength is verbal, you should make all efforts to cross 40V.

hope this helps
