Hi Gmatkoopa,

congrats on the wonderful score and a very helpful debrief. I have a couple of questions. I have some problems with timing. When I took my gmatprep I got 49 in quant section and ended up the section with 23 mins to spare. later when I revised, I saw that almost all questions that I got wrong were from data sufficiency. My main problem is that I feel I will lag behind in time so I end up doing questions very quickly. Problem solving is less prone to error as after you do calculations you most probably see your answer as one of the five answer choices but DS, well they r tricky and not straight forward. i believe that some DS problems I got wrong in gmatprep i could have got right if I had given a little more time to them, so can you tell me how can I go about DS problem, how much time you think one can give on a DS problem before moving on to next problem before guessing or making careless errors ? I am really sorry if my question looks foolish.

Also about kaplan test day experience, can we sign up for that without joining any kaplan course ?

Congratulations man. Q50 and V47 are unbelievable scores. Amazing. I'd be happy with a Q47 and a V41, but your score is incredible.

Just some questions. How long did you study for the AWA (or how many hours to be exact?) Were you taking the AWA during the practice exams?

My test is in September, and I was planning to actually study for just a weekend some time before the real test begins.

Hi gmatkoopa!

Congratulations for such a good score! You have mentioned that in SC you analyzed the explanations not only for your wrong answers. I am doing that, and it helps a lot!
I would like to know whether you have done the same for CR, RC and Quant. I tried to do it, but I feel that it consumes a lot of time and that it is not as helpful as in SC.
Did you use that strategy in the other sections of the exam?

metallica: I only did that for SC because I found that I could sometimes pick the right answer for SC for the wrong reasons. For other question types (especially for Quant), if I solved the problem it was almost always for the right reasons.

I could see how this technique could be useful for CR and RC, but I would only do it if you are really struggling with those question types. Otherwise, you're wasting a lot of time looking over explanations of what you already did.

Thanks gmatkoopa! I needed that confirmation 8-)

Yes, I have been in this forum for a while. The thing is that I am not a native speaker, so I had to spend extra time in studying (and memorizing!) certain rules of English grammar, specially those that appear in the MGMAT SC. Also, I decided to answer every SC question I find in this forum. I took the GMAT some months ago, and in my personal experience, the OG is not enough for a non-native speaker.

I am planning to take the exam in october. My weakness was in SC, but I think that I am ready in that aspect. So I believe that I will ace the GMAT this time. ;)

Gmatkoopa,

thanks so much for that flowchart, yes solving both stems on different page can be a good strategy, as I always tend to take info from one stem to other. Thanks once again for the help.
