GMAT is done 720 [#permalink] New post 17 Jan 2007, 15:03
Just returned from the test center after scoring 720 (49-Q,39-V).
This is remarkable close to my GMATPREP scores :
GMATPREP 1 - 730
GMATPREP 2 - 710
Repeated the test after reinstalling the s/w 2 more times and got 710 both times.

In both my practise tests, I didn't have enuf time to finish all the questions and had to guess/rush the last 3-4 questions.
Did not have any such trouble on the real test (Had 9 mins for last 2 questions in Verbal and 4+ mins for my last question in Quant.)

This site has been my default homepage for the last few months and I used the search function extensively to understand answers for 1000-SC .

I won't be able to apply to schools for this fall as R-2 is already over.
I hope that I get into a top school next year.

Good luck to everyone and thanks a lot for your help.

Thanks Guys.
It was a great feeling today evening as I did not have to bury mysef in books like I have been doing the last few weeks. I feel exactly like undergrad times when I felt like a free bird after each semester exam....after a while somehow the feeling went away !

The GMAT really killed so much of my personal time with family and friends that at times I really wondered if it really was worth it. Anyways, its done now and I am happy that the results turned in my favour.

My preparation for the first 2 months was almost entirely spent reading the Verbal SC posts in this forum. Not surprisingly, I got almost every SC wrong (and u2lover would crack it Left,right and center 8-) ).
Slowly, got a hang of common mistakes (SV-agreement, misplaced modifiers etc.) and made fewer mistakes.

I still don't know how well I did in SC in the test and a score of 39 certainly gives me no right to advise !

Manhattan GMAT is a good book for SC. 800 Score from Kaplan was useful for Math. But the preparation wouldn't be complete without doing GMATPrep test atleast 4 times.....try to simulate exam conditions and take the AWA portion too.

Take your time to prepare until you are comfortable with timing and accuracy.

Wish you all the very best of luck.
