~~~!!GMAT 730 97%tile (49Q, 39V) [#permalink]
18 Oct 2005, 21:19
Managed to get a 730 on my GMAT (Whew!...load off my chest)
Q - 49, V - 39
My practice scores were extremely skewed....(in the order of tests taken)
PP 1 610
Kap 1 540
Kap 2 540
Princeton 2 690
Princeton 3 640
Princeton 4 610
Kap 3 530
Kap 4 540
PP 2 720 (After solving OG, so didnt think score was accurate)
Quant: I felt the questions on the test were marginally tougher than on the OG. Nevertheless its a must to practice from the OG.
Verbal: Verbal was pretty much on the same level as the OG.
Suggested Work Material
1) Kaplan book + CD (get the latest available)
2) Kaplan higher score on Gmat 2003 CD (absolutely awesome)
3) OG 10th Edition (However get the latest)
4) Princeton Review CD (used it for tests only).
5) MBA Entrance made easy by Murtuza Gadiwala - excellent for math concepts (Available in Bombay (India), check out website http://www.mbadreams.com ).
Awesome Score!! Congrats!
Just had a question for you - how useful and relevant is the MBA Entrance made easy by Murtuza Gadiwala book? I checked the website. But a first hand feedback from you would indeed be very helpful.

About the book:
Its very well laid out and has some great shortcuts.
Basically it first explains the concepts and the necessary formulae in each topic. It has solved examples and then goes on to practice tests for each section having approx 20 - 40 questions per topic. These practice questions are also fully explained along with different methods that can be used for certain questions.
However this book is not specifically aimed at the GMAT but at Indian B School Entrance exams like CAT, CET etc.
I felt that it provides a good amount of practice as the questions within each topic are of various types.
On chapters like averages, perm/comb, probability, percentages, and geometry i found the book to be very useful.
THanks a lot! In fact I just spoke to Murtuza , the author of the book in Mumbai and aksed him to courier me a book here in Singapore. I hope he gets back with a quote...The book itself is around 300 INR, but the courier may cost much more!!
Anyways, thanks for the info buddy!
