Hi All,

I would like to start off by thanking bb and Chineseburned who helped me to get to a 670. (M:47, V:35, AWA:5.0)
When I first took my GMAT on June 29 2009, I never thought I would make it to a good b school. I got a 580 (M:39, V:30). I have no words to describe how I was feeling. I took a break for few months from GMAT, but it was always in my mind. Not sure what to do, I started searching in the internet for some help. By gods grace, I found GMAT Club. I started reading the strategies for re takers that bb wrote and let me tell you, it helped me immensely.
Every day I used to spend time going through the Share Your GMAT Experiences to understand how each test taker felt while taking the test and the advice given was precious. The Best GMAT Prep Books and only the best review is simply outstanding. bb-I cant thank you enough for creating GMAT Club. Your doing a great job!!!!! A million Kudos for you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can tell everyone that GMAT Club is the best resource for any aspiring B School Graduate. :-D :-D :-D

Thanks gurpreetsingh, Hussain15.

Hussain15:
For the verbal, I would strongly suggest to follow Manhattan SC. Its the best thing you can get for SC.
For the CR, I did Manhattan, OG 11, 12, Verbal Reviews 1st, 2nd editions. The key here would be to understand why a answer is right and why others are wrong.
For the RCs, I didnt do anything extra. Just was trying to get the timing right. Practice in tests did it for me.

I was aiming for a 40 in verbal, but ended up with a 35 :oops:



I am looking for entrepreneurship as my specialization. I belong to the dreaded IT Male category. :cry: Have only 2.1 years of work exp.

Do you guys feel 670 would do for making it into 30s ranked US B schools????
