Thanks a lot Santanu, that was enlightening.

What all materials did you use for Maths?
Would you suggest maths by Jeff Sackman?

You are welcome, Mandeep.

I have no idea about the maths book by Jeff Sackman as I have not used it.

I would suggest:

For building your base: All Manhattan GMAT maths materials and the GMATClub Online Free Maths Book

For taking tests and developing your quants test taking skills:

Thw two GMATPrep practice tests (they are pure golddust) - once done, pls reistall and take both tests again given the question bank is quite exhaustive

I personally did not like the MGMAT quant sections though they are good for practice because they are definitely tougher than the actual test and also, inflate the scores to a degree.

Pls go through the GMATClub Diagnostic test at least twice.

I liked the PlatinumGMAT online free GMAT practice test and the Quants section in it

Also liked the Knewton, Veritas and Kaplan free tests

You should also go through the 2 documents published by Bunuel (one for DS, the other for PS) - specifically, the DS questionnaire was very helpful for me.

For advanced practice, others here have recommended GMATClub Maths tests, though I haven't used them.

Please bear in mind that: Reviewing each question that you did not understand, understanding it and solving it again is absolutely essential, whichever book you follow.

Wow!
That's a nice score! Congratulations!

I am tussling with Verbal. Need to improve the verbal score by almost 10 points. I'm also thinking to take up some prep sessions, e-gmat looks as a good option. Thanks for your suggestions, Shantanu.

Nice work on the test, and thanks for the debrief. I just purchased the same books you did (MGMAT, OG Verbal and Quant). Waiting for them to arrive, and targeting a summer 2012 test date.

You are welcome, Nilay!

I think e-GMAT is a cost-effective option to improve verbals by applying smart stratagies - especially for Indians like us - traditionally quant heavy...:)

All the best!

Hi Shantu
Could you please state what was your accuracy in RC CR and SC (In which material)?

i am scoring 80-90 % correct in CR (OG 11)
SC (80% in OG , 70 % in sc grail)
RC (3 out of 4 in each passage OG11)

my first mock test gave me 590 . I got disappointed due to my bad verbal score.
Now i am planning to give mock again before that i want to gather some courage. :)
I don't know how good is my accuracy now.

Sandeep

Going by the data you have given, your overall verbal accuracy should be around 75-77% now, which implies roughly that you should get around 10 out of 41 questions wrong in Verbal - indicating an approx verbal score range of 38-39. My accuracy was on similar lines, in the 75-80% range, but sometimes, lower.

Assuming a 50 in quants, that should imply a score of 720-730.

Of course, these are rough estimates and your scores will move up as you take more practice tests.

If you maintain this strike rate, you should expect to see a 690-710 score, I think, which should be a big improvement.

Don't remember breakups, but should be around 6-8 mistakes overall I guess - should be an accuracy of 80-85%.

Yes, that's right.

However, I would urge you to take a practice test as a learning experience and learn from the mistakes rather than treat it as a make-or-break emotional rollercoaster. That would put additional pressure on you and be detrimental to your score even.

Hasan

Firstly, to know where you stand, you should take a GMATPrep practice test - this would tell you where you are currently.

Secondly, you should know what your targeted score is - will you be satisfied with a 600 or do you want a 700?

If you are totally new to GMAT preparation, only 1 month could be a touch short, I think.

As regards a starting point and guideline to your preps, pls have a look at this link:

everything-you-need-to-prepare-for-the-gmat-revised-77983.html

This thread has links to free tests, best books, GMAT scores etc - would be a good starting point.

But I can't find my second post now - the merged post seems to only consist of the first post.
