That's it... Not too bad for a non-native speaker
I was hoping for 780, but did realise I have nearly no chance.
AWA was fairly easy, thanks to several essays I wrote over the weekend. I totally agree that AWA *IS* worth some training; it's very positive and motivating when you have no problem with the essays on G day.
Quant seemed slightly easier than GMATprep; no permutations/combinations/probability at all. Several questions on powers, smth like x^(y^z) vs (x^y)^z etc. One easy stereometry question. Lots of DS, some of them tough.
Verbal was VERY tough
I'm telling this not just because I'm not a native speaker; I compare the problems to those of Kaplan 800
, OG 11
and GMATprep. Several large RCs that make you *think*, not only find the proper sentence: "the author would most likely agree with" - and five nontrivial options, go figure what the hell would author think about it
SC was hardcore as well - multiple questions where all options are grammatically correct, and ALL of them ar wordy, clumsy and lame. Hell knows which one is the best of the worst...
Surprisingly, time was not an issue; during GMATpreps, I was just about in time on all sections, but today I had about 10 minutes left on Quant and about 15 minutes on Verbal.
A pneumatic drill outside the testing centre was adding me some fun
That's basically it; feel free to ask if there is anything useful I missed.
...ah, I did miss something. THANKS guys! THANKS gmatclub
I owe this forum about 750 of my 760
