Hey Ardent! Hopefully I can do as well as these other two on my test. Yeah the GRE verbal basically tests your vocabulary... Too much luck (getting words you know) involved in it... The gmat verbal isn't easier but BETTER in my opinion since it's testing your REASONING skills as opposed to how well you can memorize 3000 words.
I hope I can replicate these scores during the exam... I honestly don't know how much time I've really "spent" on studying so far... But I'd say it's been 2 months now since I started investigating the gmat... I've read the 5 mgmat math guides twice just to learn a the minutiae tested in the exam. I haven't really studied for verbal. My grammar has always been good so SC isn't an issue and my reasoning is also good. RC is a hit or miss depending on the passage (Women's rights always gets me). Most people spend around 2-3 months or 100 hours (excluding CATs) so expect to spend that much if you want to do well.


Hello Getienne! I hope you'll replicate the same scores in the actual GMAT :-) Why not, you have an incredible consistency!
Even i have set a target of two months of prep, by the Jan1st week i should be able to take the Test.
My reasoning is fine but when it comes to grammar i am dumb! BUT again with the practice i can improve, as GMAT has very predictable grammar i.e. 8-9principles are enough to sail through SCs. isn't it?!
I haven't taken any full length test yet, i will take one on this weekend and will let you know about it.

Went through the GPSC and GPCR documents I found in Whiplash's signature... Accuracy was hovering at 95% so that felt good. Did these 700+ PS and DS question sets on Bunuel's signature... Tomorrow I'm just gonna relax. No work so watching TV all day.

Hey guys,

Got a 730 today (Q49 V40)... I'm kind of dissappointed and debating whether or not it's worth it to retake it... The test was a little "different" than what I expected... I'll write a debrief tomorrow. Tonight is Halloween party time so time to go "celebrate"

Yeah I hear you man. I was a little disappointed about my 730 as well. At least your score is pretty balanced though, so it may not be worth it to retake, cause really - a 730 is a great score.

It is disappointing though, especially since we both performed better on our practice tests.

I'll be looking forward to your debrief.

Haha thanks dude. Yeah man, the first round I bungled it, I went in so nervous that my mind kinda shut down, especially for math. This time I went in totally relaxed. I had come to terms with the 730 and had accepted that that might be my score - I mean it is a good score. So just having that mindset where this time didn't matter so much, it felt like I was taking a practice test and I was able to nail it.

But yeah man, let me know if you decide to retake it. The past month I basically just coasted, after my test I took a week off, then went to studying for about an hour to an hour and a half per night just to keep things fresh.
