GMAT is down :) 760, Q50/V44 [#permalink] New post 10 Oct 2006, 07:34
That's it... Not too bad for a non-native speaker :) I was hoping for 780, but did realise I have nearly no chance.

Brief report:

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 ;)

Sure :)

I started with Kaplan GMAT, 2007 Edition; found it way too easy, so just quickly stormed it in a week and dropped. Then was GMAT 800; much tougher, very useful, but too few combinations/permutations/probabilities/multipliers to make me really happy. Last one was Official guide - didn't really solve much from there, but studied thoroughly the math reviews - they're VERY good, concise yet useful and clear.

Preparation took me 2 months in a moderate schedule; there were weeks when I didn't even touch the GMAT on weekdays, except forum. Every weekend, though, was a hardcore training session.

Took 2 GMATpreps this weekend; scored 760 and 770, so was expecting a decent result. Also, wrote several essays (about 8) over last week - this, again, helped a lot (first one was a 50-minute nightmare! :)).

Ah, and yesterday I wasn't doing anything at all - think it's a good thing to do, clear up you brains a bit.

Wouldn't say so. I worked pretty hard on SC - done all of GMAT 800, about 200 of SC-1000 problems, and nearly every SC challenge that appeared here on the forums during last month. In some cases, I figured out some rules I wasn't aware of, but mostly it was getting used to "GMAT English", their philosophy of what is wordy, what is ambiguous, etc.

GMAC is getting more efficient..

V44 is a GREAT score for anyone: Even greater for a non-native speaker.

You really make me feel DUMB! hahahaha.

Good luck on your apps.
