GMAT - Score 700 (Quant-49, Verbal-35) [#permalink] New post 20 Sep 2005, 11:00
Hi Folks.

I am not posting here to tell u what time i got up in the morning or what i ate in the breakfast for i think at this age everyone would be aware of how his/her digestive system behaves. I read few experiences on this forum which mentions details like what the guy ate during exam,how many times he went to the bathroom & at what time he left for the exam. Guys no offense but thats all crap.People start writing poems on this forum on getting a good score.Getting a good GMAT score (on first or nth attempt) may be a big achievement for an individual but in real world dont holds any value. Who would be interested in knowing what all u hav gone thru life or what the reasons were which made u feel like an underdog(btw who can consider u an underdog.Its ur lack of self confidence which can made u feel that way).My request is to everyone to post only relevant things on this forum.

GMAT :
Appeared for GMAT today .Scored 700.
Quant - Quite Easy.
Verbal - Found a bit tough but i was short of practise.

Started prep arnd 1.5 mnths ago.Didnt do much practise.

Mock tests:
GMAT Prep1 - 680
GMAT Prep2 - 700
Kaplans Test1 - 720
Kaplans Test4 - 680

Books Referred : OG (Data Sufficiency,Sentence Correction), Kaplans Verbal.

Suggestions :
Be confident. Its an easy thing.Dnt read too much into what others have done to get a good score.Theres no Fixed formulae to succeed.Apart from it everyone has diff sets of shortcomings & strengths.So put some extra effort to work on the area which u are not very comfortable in.For me it was Data Sufficiency.

Good Luck to all those who are to appear for GMAT in the near future & apologies to those who might have been hurt by what all i wrote.

cheers.

Although I do commend you on your great score, I have to disagree with your point of view on the preparation details that some people previously wrote.

For one, you did not even write down how the quant and verbal sections were like, other than "easy" or "tough", which will incidentally have no value for future gmat test takers. Secondly, the GMAT preparation is a holistic approach and for some people, it involves more than getting the fundamentals right; it involves preparing one's body and mind. Besides, I do not think there is anything wrong with writing about one's experience on eating or going to the bathroom during the exam as it could, under time constraint, have a detrimental effect which perhaps others could learn from. Even though you do not regard that as valuable information, it does not entitle you to discredit it as "crap" and blame other people's lack of success on their own self-confidence problem. It is just being inconsiderate and abrasive to the extreme.

First off, congrats on ur score and good to see u are happy with it ! However, your post adds no "value" to anyone's prep, if I were a GMAT aspirant, I wud rather read that lengthy post than your short summary. Remember, not everyone is alike and one is free to read or ignore a post. However, time and time again I have seen that ppl give credit to those long posts for their success rather than to a post which only says: "Math was easy", "verbal was tough" and "these are my practice scores". I am sure your detailed test exp would have helped other candidates, even if you had chosen not to talk about what u ate and how u handled stress, which is as valuable as the test prep itself.

Hi Paul.

I didnt term lack of success as lack of self confidence. But self sympathy is not the ideal way to express your disappointment. We all fail at times but then you really dont have to let the whole world know about that. I am not at all inconsiderate about anyone irrespective of whether the person is successful or not.

I ll elaborate on the test questions.
1. Quant : There was a geometry question related to polygon which was a bit tricky. It had to do with internal angles of polygons.So do read the properties of internal angles of polygon.I wasnt able to solve that. There were couple of Probabilities questions which were quite simple. Data Sufficiency was the easiest part with all the questions straightforward & complexity wise much simpler than any of the doubts people have posted on the Quant forum. For data sufficieny my advise is always solve the problem & get the result even when you are sure that Option A or B will gives the result.
2. Verbal : Started with 3 Sentence Correction questions & then there were couple of questions which were like a small paragraph with 2 lines in bold.The question was around the relationship between the 2 bold lines. Not very sure but think hav seen such kind of questions in the GMAT Prep Tests.Total of 4 RC's were there.Each of around 60-65 lines.
My guess is that GMAT Prep gives the best indication of where one stands in terms of the preparation.

cheers

> People start writing poems on this forum on getting a good score.

Now that is a good idea.

How about a limerick ?


There was a young man with 720
Who wanted a place at Sloan M.I.T.
He skipped lunch - a mistake
To stop a crap in the break
When there would only be time for a pee


Can anyone do a haiku ?

Congrats Davesh!! All the best with the apps!!

What happens with an individual on the day of the test -what breakfast he had or what he did six months ago may not be of any consequence to you but it does inspire people like me to put in that extra bit... thinking.. if he had to go through all that... he was a bundle of nerves.. then I'm human too.

We really appreciate everyone sharing their testday, test prep experiences.

Once again... great score!
