Congratulations buddy! That's a great score.

mbadownunder, your score makes me wonder, how you prepared for the test :wink:

Could you share your prep and practice test details..?

Good luck for your apps!

Thanks Guys [#permalink] New post 30 Jan 2006, 20:08
Thanks a lot for all your wishes guys. Really appreciate it. And now that I am done with it, I realise that the questions on the forum were a lot better and accurate of the GMAT level as compared with KAPLAN or Princeton.

I was doing really really well on the KAPLAN Quant. Luckily as I got closer to the exam date, I started solving question on this forum and that really helped me especially in DS. DS on the actual GMAT was hard. Loads of inequalities, exponents and modulus stuff. Especially if you do well right up front then it really throws some tough ones at you on DS. But one strategy that definitely worked for me was to not let your ego get in the way. I always kept a close watch on time. I ws cruising most of the way but when I had 14 questions left I had only 18 minutes on hand and then a really long DS problem came up. I could have struggled with it and not get the better of me but it would easily taken more than 4-5 minutes (no kidding). So I decided to make an educated guess in about a minute so that I can focus more on PS which I feel more confident about.

Verbal, really wasnt very hard. RC and CR were easy. SC was a little harder than I expected but nothing that cant be managed.

As for prep material I did Kaplan, Princeton and GMAT club (:-))
I bought the 1000 verbal question series and the Quant stuff on which I thought was extremely extremly useful. Indicative of the level of toughness on the actual GMAT.

I have already written enough, but if I can help in any other way please let me know.

Once again a big thank you to everyone. Where else in the world can you get a response to a problem in about 1 minute. I plan to stay on the site for as long as I can. Might still give Quant some cracks.
