Amazing Vaishnavi! Congratulations! What is really significant is the kind of strength/ weakness analysis u must have done to improve so much! I think I for one could really gain from your thoughts and insights!

Hi Babzsn84,

Thanks again, During last one week,i wrote GMAT Prep(reinstalled) again to see where i stand,and to find out wat i lack still,as i mentioned above i got 470 in one test and discovered that i am tensed to my highest. Then i thought i have to wind up giving my full length test and revise my notes for CR,RC and SC and give a glance of my mistakes in Ds and Ps.i did that.Just before the day of exam that is Friday i didnt touch any of my book,i forgot GMAT and that i have test the next day.Saw a movie.Celebrated my Husbands Bday as it was on friday :)...enjoyed and slept well.

Wow, impressive! Never heard a story like this.

Did you make a dedicated effort to study the first time around? Just wondering where the 360 came from.

This is amazing Vaishnavi :)
I was eager to know your score all this time, and slightly worried after I heard a 470 on your last GMATPrep.
But then, you did it.
Many congratulations !! :-D
+1 for the perseverance !

Thank you Santanu 76 and Gmatla and ofcourse Vailad


Glad to see that my name could tag along your debrief, though only as the last word of your post !! :P

Wow! your story is really inspiring. I just took my first gmat and i scored the same as you .. i wanted to crumple up my results ..
I can't understand what went wrong.
I bought the OG, and the manhattan sentence correction guide.
I also did practice tests
I even went for classes
I feel like the stupidest person around

Congrats on Good score,

I feel that the score you got in the first test is not because of your bad preperation but it was because of nervousness, tensed state during the test,
You have overcome that major hurdle during the second test,hence the Score.
Congratulations.

I have sort of same problem, getting 580,590 in prep test with 48,49 in Q but scoring badly in verbal arnd 23-25, i must overcome this fear,

When you have done it, i can also do it.
Thanks for the post vaishnavi
