GMAT Scores [#permalink] New post 12 Aug 2003, 10:53
I've been reading posts regarding GMAT scores. What do you guys consider a good score? If the B schools I'm applying to have a mean score of 550 then how is a 560 so "horrible"?

I just took a Kaplan practice test. Got a 550. What killed me is the math section and reading those long passages (I kept having to re read them) on the verbal.

Is it possible to significantly raise my Math skills in 3 months? Can anyone suggest a good GMAT Math book? Most of the GMAT math books include GRE topics, I rather not study information that isn't relavent.

Thanks

Lisa I hope that this gives you hope. I can't speak from experience because I have not taken Kaplan practice tests. But many students that have scored in the 600's even low 700's have similar Kaplan scores. To many people posting here, the Kaplan tests are more difficult than the real thing. And to answer your question, no 550 is not a horrible score. However, considering your Kaplan score, I believe that with some work you can do better than 550 on the real thing. What will be required is dilligence and a positive attitude. Good luck!!!

One more thing. The best study materials for me have been as follows.

1. Kaplan math workbook
2. Kaplan Verbal workbook
3. Official Guide (real test questions)
