Dear greatps24 :
I am unfortunately not very familiar with MGMAT CAT, so I prefer not to say anything rather than giving you a wrong advise.
It would be interesting to know how you scored on GMAT Prep for your first attempt and what would be your score now. But for sure, if you keep your Quant that high and improve on Verbal, you'll reach your target
! I actually scored Q50,V31 for a 680 on my first try, so if your target is 690-700, you should be able to do it, simply given the randomness of the test (there's quite some deviation in the GMAT).
Moreover, I felt really calm and relax during my second attempt, I knew what was ahead of me and I felt really comfortable. You should really try to get into this mood for your second attempt: I figure out now that I completely freaked out in the Verbal part during my first attempt and I was clicking nervously on the last 4 questions because time was running out. Also, I felt like I had a much better "high level" view on this second attempt than on the first one: as soon as I read a Verbal question, I could much more quickly dismiss the questions out of scope and discern whether it was a supporting evidence or a weakening one. It felt just right
! I hope you'll be able to have such a different perspective on questions and receive a nice reward for your hard work.
As far as tips, besides getting a lot of rest for your brain, some sugar and a lot of confidence/motivation, I don't really know what to advise you
Good luck and keep us posted !Dear pancakeFR :
Thanks for the good words
I hope you'll be able to reach even higher summits than me. And as already stated above, just relax and enjoy this challenge for another time Dear nt2010 :
I bought the Verbal Online package of e-GMAT
primarily because I don't have time to attend online classes and I usually fall asleep or multitask with something else at the same time and feel like a lose my time, but also because I wanted to have a tool to practice a lot and Grockit, included in the package, offers this
I averaged 100 questions / day on Grockit for the last 10 days before the exam. I also tried to place a few CAT (still from Grockit) inbetween. And I didn't use GMAT Prep again, because I have read so many GMAT Prep questions that I would probably get a biased score by knowing the correct answere beforehand.
I learned a lot with the SC course, mainly because I didn't read anything for the first attempt [I assumed that my language skills were enough, but I didn't have strong grammatical grounds for dismissing some options. I am a non-native by the way - this is also probably a reason for my "big" improvement in Verbal] and I strongly believe it is the best of e-GMAT
courses. I personally didn't like the RC one, but maybe because I don't like RC at first, haha~ I usually fall asleep when I read some texts, so this is probably not due to e-GMAT
I like the CR courses too, but again this is my point of view and I don't assume everyone to agree with me.
Good luck for the preparation !
