From 590 to 670...to...? [#permalink] New post 17 Oct 2010, 15:55
I took the GMAT 2 years ago and scored a blistering 590. This score was definitely a fluke, because at that point in my life I had numerous things occurring (wife enduring chemo, new baby, sinus infection). I've been living the past two years with the psychological effects of that dang test. In my practice tests, I was scoring in the 730-740 range, but I couldn't make it happen on the real thing.

...fast forward two years to the present day. I took the GMAT yesterday and scored a lame 670. I had studied for 2 months and my practice tests were ranging in the 730-740 range yet again. When I went into the test, I was rattled...BIG TIME. Partially because of the lasting effects of my first failure...and partially because I really, really wanted to do well. As I progressed through the test, I felt that I nailed the AWA section...I bombed the quant section...and I felt that I did well on the verbal section. Overall my score was 44 quant 38 verbal....with the aforementioned 670.

I'm ticked. Irritated. Motivated. I want to score a 700+ so that I can get into a top PhD program. I know that I can accomplish this goal...and after my most recent failure I feel that I have the motivation necessary to make this goal happen.

The materials that I've used are as follows:

- Kaplan Premier
- Princeton Review "Breaking the GMAT"
- Official Guide
- 800 Score Materials

I've contemplated buying the GMATClub tests, but I don't know that I'll have the time necessary to study these materials, because I hope to retake this test in 31 days.

I just wanted to post my experience. I will be a GMAT success story. It's just taking me longer than I thought it would to get there...

Thanks for reading :).
