GMAT 650 (44/35) [#permalink] New post 11 May 2003, 05:33
Pretty disappointed with the performance as I was expecting 700+ and I thought I was good for it. But I got bogged down in the verbal sectoin at a couple of CR questions and that seemed to affect me. Eventually i ran out of time and had to guess an entire RC.

As for the questions. Math was easy. Only one Probability question ( which was very easy). No Perm/Comb. Lot of alzebra.

Sentence correction was also easy. I am confident that I answered all of them correctly. But the CR and the last RC undid all my good work.
I had 4 RCs in all. 3 were pretty short and easy.
There was one BOLD fact CR question.

Is there someone out there who inproved from 600s to a 700+. Could you please get in touch with me, I could take a few tips from you.

For got to mention: the AWA was straight forward and easy.

650 is not bad though.

there is a tendency to believe that 700 is the only good score but a good and qualified person who can write powerful essays can secure a position at any school. I had to get 700+ becuase I suck in essays and I had international work experience with a small company and that is sometimes looked down at.....

P.S. I have upgraded you to the Active Members Group - hope that will help some. Don't think about stopping though.

Yes, if you are an American or worked for a large multinational company such as IBM or BMW.

Otherwise, there is a tendency to put it down, since you are not familiar with the American Way; thus you have to be educated, introduced to the business practices, etc....

this has been my impression
