The prep is on track and I am surprised to realise that I am relying a lot of gmatclub. The question bank is amazing and the explanations thorough. I wish I had relied more on gmatclub during my first attempt.

Anyhow, I gave my first mock CAT (Kaplan free test) yesterday and I got a 750. I did well in Quants (95%ile - only two questions wrong) and not so well in Verbal (66%ile - 15 wrong). I have to push myself more to improve CR and repeat the scores on Quants. If I get 740+ scores in atleast 3 more mock tests (one of which would be Gprep), I would be happy and confident to bell the GMAT.

How is your prep going on?

P.S. I had got a 630 in Kaplan free test when I was preparing for the first attempt. Quants -83%ile and Verbal- 89%ile with 9 questions wrong in quants and 10 questions wrong in verbal.

Ok so I gave my mock test no 2 today. The details are:

Test name: MGMAT
Total score: 710
Quants: 49
Verbal: 37

My reaction after the test: I should have got a 50 on Quants and 39-40 on verbal. I need to stop doing silly mistakes and should not loose focus at all...

My score on first MGMAT (while preparing for first attempt) was 630 (Q40, V37). I think MGMAT is more generous in verbal scoring :)

Keep at it, I'm also doing a journey but I'm keeping it in a word document. Do you think I should post it post by post like you do?

Hi unforseen, the reason I am posting my prep updates here because I want to be more organized and focussed in my preparation. This way I feel more accountable :) The second reason is to seek suggestions and provide suggestions (if applicable :)).

I would suggest, you post your journey here...who knows you could be of help to someone and you also could get other's views/suggestions. My 2 cents :)

Gave another mock test yesterday..MGMAT and got 730 (Q46, V44). This score has made me happy (for Verbal) and sad (for Quants). I could not manage my time well in quants and due to that I had to guess couple of questions and they all went wrong :(

So this is my serious concern...I should manage my time well in the real test. I should not get carried away by any particular problem.

So the D day is just 2 days away and after and after that will begin a one month vacation. I am sooo waiting for it to get over and to get over at excellent terms.

Thou shall get the score she wants :)
