I gave my GMAT exam today and was totally dissapointed. Having said that, I kind of anticipated this bad score.
I scored 540 (Q 47, V19).
I gave few practice test in the last 2-3 weeks .
GMAT Prep 1; 3 weeks ago --680
GMAT Prep 2; 3 weeks ago --590
MGMAT 1 ; 2 week --570
MGMAT 2 ; 2 week --590
MGMAT 3 ; 2 week --630
MGMAT 4 ; 2 week --620
GMAT Prep 2; 1 weeks ago --500
GMAT Prep 1; 1 weeks ago --590
As you can see from my above score , I am just a 600 guy. Yes thats true.. Merely a 600 guy.
But in my actual GMAT exam today, I scored just 540.
In all my practice test, for Quant , I scored an average of 47. thats exactly what I got in final GMAT.
I have been very weak in Verbal. Gmat Prep predicted my avg verbal score to be 22 and MGMAT prep said 30. Finally I scored 19.
So all in all, Gmat Prep is a good indicator of Quant & Verbal....
To all the people taking the GMAT exam, believe me... GMAT Prep is the only best indicator of your actual score.
Offlate I was reading through forum saying, Quant has become extremely tough n all. These are all just myths and not true. The difficulty level of Quant is same as OG12
. To my knowledge and observation, nothing has changed.
Coming down to verbal, I woudn't say Verbal was tough but I guess I am not good at verbal. Now I am exploring new avenues for Verbal. I would like to review Manhattan SC, Powerscore RC
and then re-appear for GMAT. Can some one suggest apart from the above 2 verbal books, what else do I need study? And yes, I will also refer sahils-spider notes.
What is the path to success for high verbal score? Any inputs will be highly appreciated.
