From first mock test to over 700? [#permalink] New post 14 Aug 2013, 06:33
Hi everyone,
I just did my first mock test, the Princeton Review free test and my score ended up being a lousy 470 (V29, Q27, integrated reasoning 2(!?!)). This was with no practice at all. I have 5 months and about 2 whole days a week to study for the real test.

I am non-notive speaker (yet, have had international schooling). I am pretty good at verbal stuff usually but the GMAT quant looks very different to what I have been tought. However, I am a quick learner, have good memory and have a Bachelor's and Master's degrees so I am an efficient learner.

What do you experts think, with an appropriate plan, do I have any chance of getting to the high 600s or even the low 700s?

I've been thinking about my terrible score all day, but have decided to not get too sad about it. I guess a more realistic picture can be derived from taking a mock test is after I have gone through all the material.

By the way, I had studied one thing from the GMAT books and that was primes. I guess they are pretty easy but I got all of the questions right concerning them. So I am hoping that after going through all the material I will perform similarly as I did with the primes!

Still would appreciate any comments on this, though!
