Really could do with your input on the below;
Have just discovered this website and very impressed. One point i would like to mention however is that a lot of people seem to be creaming very high scores and not only am i very jealous but also completely baffled as to how you guys do it!!!
My background: Language (major) and business (minor)
Ran my own small company and thought i had a good basic underpinning of maths until last year when i saw this test and i was proven wrong. Equations, exponents all forgotten (did i ever study them??).
So....tried to do my GMAT and work at the same time (impossible for me when running my own company and also considering my pathetic knowledge of maths)..took the GMAT and scored a mighty 500 (end 2005)..
Situation now is that with my experience i need only a 620 ish score.....
Problem is that in order to get this score you need to get around 54/81. (is that right??). Now i gave my father (ex president of an MNC 5 questions on both maths and english) and he said he hadnt got a clue on any..his CFO with a calculator couldnt complete many of the maths questions and recently a senior lecturer from a prestigous uni here in London got all five questions wrong in the English section......no joke honestly.....
Today i took the Kaplan
test (540) and my maths is getting better but my english (i am english!!!) is not too hot....the annoying thing is that in China i knew countless people with almost perfect scores who couldnt even put a sentence together..i ended up communicating in Chinese with them!!!!
I am planning to take the test again at the end of this month and have most of the material that you have suggested. With such small margins for error (4 of the reasons for my SC problems were that choice "is akward or too wordy" .... or on the CR questions "that choice could be right but choice X is better" ......please.....) HOW do you guys do it?????
Does anyone else have these kind of thoughts/problems?? How can i go from 540 to 600 ish?? is this possible in a month given my language and business background...????
Really interested in your comments
BTW i havent checked my grammar and sp mistakes lol
also i hope this doesnt come across as negative just a bit bewildered at the moment!!
