From 710 to 580 at Pearson Center [#permalink] New post 25 Oct 2010, 14:45
Man...pulled consistent 710 and a 700 on the gmat prep (second round on both tests, but did not get many of the same questions that I could remember, and the first 2 rounds I got 640 and 660).

Pulling consistent 40/40 or 43/43 on Princetonreview Tests - 640+

Pretty much never scored below 640 after prepping.

580 at the Pearson center in Brooklyn. 36m, low verbal. Halfway through the verbal they start drilling the pavement outside. Ba ta ta ta ta ta ta! As soon as its done, they hammer away. Bang bang bang bang! I was going to hit someone. After the test, I complained...to the proctor. She said I did not complain during the test, despite taking many breaks. Good luck complaining in the middle of the last section, the verbal part. Its when the ba ta ta ta begun!

Anyway had this experience with the Brooklyn center? I am so mad I am ready to take it again tomorrow, somewhere else of course. Maybe in Manhattan this time.

Or should I prep more? I was just going for a 640-660, and after scoring 700+ I thought it would be a piece of cake.

Urghhh.

Yes, if you were facing some problem at the center, you should have complained the concerned people. Don't do this mistake friends and speak out!!
