690 - 49(Q), 35(V) - 92percentile
Fist time 650 - 44(Q), 35(V) - 85percentile

Took the test today and am very satisfied with my performance. Though mid way through the test I doubted if I could improve on my score from my first take. Quant was pretty easy but I did get bogged down with some calculations... a few were pretty messy. I remember guessing 2 questions which I was having trouble with. Just managed to completed the section before the time expired.

SC was pretty straight forward. I recieved 4 RCs in all and found them to be easy. The first RC came immediately after the 1st question.
CR was alright too. Had one bold face CR question. it was the 40th question.

Comparing the test with my first attempt, I feel I did a better in math. Managed time in the Verbal section better than the first time( I had to guess an entire RC as I ran out of time) , but ended up getting the same score 35 as in the first attement.

If you have any question, I would be happy to answer them.

Special Thanks to Solyar for the exercises on Probability\Perm& Combination, I had no problem in answering the probability question I faced.

Hi KSS,

Good job on the score improvement!

A couple of questions for you :

1. Do you think familiarity with the test, because of a previous attempt, helped you score better this time in any way?

2. Was the Permutation/Combination questions the hardest type you faced on the Quant section? What about inequalities (I tend to struggle a bit with these :cry: )

Thanks!

Cheers to the Man! :drinking


That's great you are satisfied - there is nothing more pleasing than seeing return on the investment and being pleased with the outcome.

Well, now you are a true certified expert of the GMAT :lol:


Your score should be good currency anywhere...

My first attempt was on March 10, I have a post for that too, you could look that up.
I started preparing for the second attempt 3-4 weeks before the test date.
I basically worked on all the OG problems which I had got wrong earlier. I always mark something when i have problems with it. So I went back to the OG and did all those questions again. Took a kaplan and 2 Princeton review tests, and 2 PP tests. I worked on all the Probability questions on this site and that helped me alot. I even remember the question from the actual exam but I would not be wright for me to give it away. Trust me, if you go through the ones posted by Stolyar they should be good enough practice.

Good luck

The probability and combination( actually it was permutation ) questions were very simple. Understand the concepts from Stolyars examples and you should be good to go.

RC surprisingly were very interesting and readable from me this time.
One was on science, one on business, one on history, and i dont remember the other.
