Going to fight with GMAT 3rd time. Plz advise me. [#permalink] New post 02 Apr 2013, 23:52
Hi All,,,,I have decided to appear for GMAT again (around Aug –Sep) . I have realized you need to have MBA if you want to reach at top. I am at a descent package but I know it would be tough in future to climb the ladder unless I have a MBA.

This is going to be my third attempt. My Previous two attempts were unsuccessful.

First Attempt – Nov 2011 – 630

Second Attempt – April 2012 -590

The Quant score during both attempts was around 48. The verbal section is my trouble area. In verbal section also its CR & RC where I struggle most. Since you have rules for SC it’s still easy to master SC. My main concern is how to increase your accuracy in CR & RC. I have practiced a lot of questions for CR & RC but I am still not at that Level.
I think more than practice I need a guidance and a trick to Master CR & RC.

Can anyone guide me how to get that magical figure of 700. Unless and Until I get my verbal score up it’s not going to be possible.

Please guide me and help me so that my accuracy in both CR & RC increases.

Also, guide me the source which I should rely on for both Quant & Verbal. I have done OG many times and now questions are already memorized. Before solving the question you know the answer which is a waste of time.

I can devote max 2 Hrs on week days and 5 Hrs on weekends. Please guide me and help me in getting a good score.


Regards

Rohit

Vandygrad11 has a thread you might look at. It's called "How do you increase verbal to V51 from V45?"

You want to identify your weakness and work on it.. My weakness was timing.. missing simple questions in Quant under time pressure.. wasting time reading and re-reading the same question.. when I appeared for my 2nd attempt, I took a long time for 1st question in Quant because I forgot the simple conversion. supposed to divide by cubic mm.. wasted 10 seconds thinking division is right or multiplication.. In verbal, I found reading and re-reading CR and SC questions under time pressure...

This is what I plan to prepare for my 3rd attempt..

Enrolled e-gmat SC online course and working on their meaning first and sentence breakdown process
Revising MGMAT math books and working on Bunnels signature problem - practice, practice and practice
Plan to practice as much as possible for Quant
Purchased GMAC Question Pack 1
Reviewing OG questions & Answers
Stay active on this forum and help fellow GMAT aspirants
Thought of CR bible, but realized to focus on the material at hand 1st. MGMAT guides.

I plan to appear for my 3rd attempt on May 1, 2013..

These are humble notes from 500+ scorer working towards 700+....

You may want to read De-briefs from people who scored 700+..

I would suggest you spend as much time as you can on simply reading. If it is possible, spend the next few weeks on reading non-GMAT material from different sources. Make sure you understand what you read, write summary passages for yourself and look up words you are uncertain about. Language skills improve by practice (like everything else), so put in as much time in front of books and articles as you can.

If you're taking the GMAT for the 3rd time, you need a study plan. Try this GMATPill 1 month study plan. -- the goal is master each section in 5-7 days before moving on to the next section.

With your time availability of a few hours on wkday evenings and 5+ hours on wkends -- this is the perfect profile candidate to take advantage of the study plan as laid out.
