Very happy to say that i got 700 in real GMAT,i made it...Just Believe i got 360 in my first real GMAT and one month i score 700 in second GMAT. Confidence,concentration and staying calm is very essential for GMAT
For Gmat all you need is concentration and confidence. I really thank GMatLa who first initiated in encouraging me, and Santanu 76,who gave a valuable advice and guided me on the rite track.I am very thank full to Gmat club without which i am nothing.
I wrote my first real gmat test on dec 14 2011 and i scored really very horrible.I was very depressed and felt like no i am not going to this in any part of my life.Till then i was a silent visitor of GMat Club.I thought to post my real score and get help of great people from here and as i thought i got.
Jan 26 i started my preparation and scheduled my real gmat on feb 25th. Hardly one month.
For my second preparation i did each and every problem solving,ds,sc,rc and cr from gmat club.Gmat Club was the only source.
After completing all questions from gmat club,i was asked to take GMAT Prep test by santanu 76,
Gmatprep: around 600+ i carefully observed my presence of mind in doing each problem and analyzed my skills in each section and presented a debrief to santanu 76. GMatPrep2 again 630+ Platinum G Mat free test 680 GMAT Prep (reinstalled) 680 GMAT prep2 (reinstalled ) 470
omg! i am going down again,wats happening with me,i was in panic and posted again.Confidence and calm in last moment is very important for writing your test. If you think you can do,you can really do it Wat ever it is ,I believed in me.
On the day of exam :
I scheduled my exam at 12,reached center 1 hour ahead and was telling 1000 times inside me if i remain calm i can do it.AWA was a pleasant breeze after writing quans i was not able to judge my performance but i wanted to concentrate on verbal more than wat i did in quans...i was able to finish quans in time.
Verbal CR and Sc was ok and Rc i felt bit tough,cos i am relatively a slow reader, i cannot read fast,my eyes pain a lot,so decided to take less time for CR and SC and more on RC. However i was able to complete each question in the rite time until i got that one big RC paragraph in almost end of the verbal section.Still i made it to give up best educated guess,cos i didnt want to concetrate in one single paragraph and leave almost 8 question at the back. In the last i had 5 mins with 5 question left. I was able to finish just rite in time.
I was so much excited to see my score 700 (Q49V37)
Very happy.I also thank my husband who stood behind me in every step i took
Thank you Santanu 76 and Gmatla and ofcourse Vailad
Thank you for this very encouraging post my good friend. I am also trying to score more than 700 and my GMAT test I recently took I scored 360 on it. I hope that in June I can write a very nice GMAT experience debrief like yours. Great score once again.
Thanks Don let your heart go down for your score. All i will say is have confidence in you.I am sure you will get a good score. Take advice of Gmat Club i am sure you will succeed.All the Best friend,have enough gap for your second Gmat and plan your preparation,instead of working out problem literally think twice before you solve any thing.
Of course i am not very good in advising,but i did this.All the best once again
It's really great to know that u have scored so well and 360 to 700 is almost double...so mission well accomplished. Santanu and GMATLA rightly deserve those words as i have read the thread in which they were guiding you. best wishes for ur future endeavours..
Fire the final bullet only when you are constantly hitting the Bull's eye, till then KEEP PRACTICING.

Thanks.Yeah they deserve it a lot,GMAT Club too deserves credit.The questions are so helpful and challenging,i will prefer GMAT club to all my friend who wants to write GMAT in near future for guidance.
In my first GMAT i got 8 percentile in ver bal i was weak in verbal and quants was comparatively better than verbal,though it was not good. I was weak in RC and SC ,the most critical part of GMAT. I used all SC and Cr provided by gmat club. Moreover lack of confidence fear pushed me down in first test
You have almost doubled your score - probably one of the biggest success stories on GMATClub, and a great moment for GMATClub as well!
Am so glad I could help, in whatever way...!

Hats of to you. What a jump from 360 to 700. I am so motivated reading your post. I am in the same situation as you were in.I scored low in my first GMAT exam.Started preparing again from 10th Jan and Retaking in March first week.
I have only taken GMATPrep tests and scoring between 630-700.Did you take any MGMAT tests?
I am so happy Santanu 76,i am very great full to you,i don know how to thank you,seriously if you weren't there guiding me , making me calm wen i get tensed i would have not achieved this. soooooooooo happy ,happy that i fell in to GMAT Club in rite time, and the first time i posted about my gmat test (scoring 360) i felt little ashamed,but i had no ther choice only if i come out of that and explain everything here you will all be able to guide ,so decided to put everything. That day was the day when i took rite decision taking GMAT club and asking for help.
Once again Thanks Santanu76 for our help and kudos
No Babzsn84 i did not take MGMAT test,i should have taken Santanu 76 asked me to take but i didnt,it was too late for me to take tests ,i didn't want to pressure myself taking tests often and seeing scores.Though i was confident that i can take i didnt want to force myself.I just wanted to see that i am strong in concepts and remain calm.
When i can double my score,you can easily do this Babzsn84,don worry all the best.Thanks for your wishes
