Got 580 (Q48V23) GmatPrep..Need help to analyze my weakness [#permalink] New post 12 Jul 2010, 04:32
Hi..

I am preparing for the last 3 months..Today i gave my Gmat Prep 1 and got : Q48 , V23 , Total : 580..

Analysis : Quant ( Incorrect 13 ) ; Verbal ( Incorrect : 16 )

Correct Incorrect
PS 14 ; 5
DS 10 ; 8
CR 6 ; 5
SC 10 ; 7
RC 9 ; 4

Few Q nos that i got incorrect in Verbal were : 7,8 ; 13,14 ; 27,28 ; 30,32,33,36,39,41

I was left with around 20 mins to complete last 15-16 Qs in Verbal part.. In verbal i had to guess a lot of Qs as i was having timing Issues which i think affected my score badly..
plzz help me to improve my score as i am targeting a Score of around 700 and planing to give my Gmat on August 7,2010...

Thanks in advance..

Well, same thing happened to me & I wrote this post
gmat-prep-opinion-required-96402.html

My score was Q 44 & V 27 (I got 13 wrong in Q & 15 in verbal). My test date is 09-Aug-10. I am posting my daily update here; eight-nine-ten-the-countdown-begins-96780.html.

My take on my result is that its verbal which is hitting me. I think you have twenty + days to improve your verbal skills as much you can. Remember, if you can get 48 in Q, then you need 40 or 41 to get 700. Do as many RC & SC in timed conditions. I hope it will improve your verbal score.

Hey Bud,

This is what I would advice for your Verbal score to improve.

1. Based on the # of incorrect answers in the verbal section, you need to improve on SC & CR. Get the MGMAT SC book and turn it from cover to cover. Also do the OG exercises as you go through the material. It will get your scores up.

2. On CR, I found that doing just one type of question (say assumptions) was helpful because a pattern eventually emerges. I suggest you this with OG questions using the MGMAT CR guide as a companion. The guide is pretty decent if you want to have some structure to answering CR questions.

Finally, when it comes to verbal, know the rules of SC and have a structured approach to CR questions. Then review ALL the OG questions (twice over if necessary). If you do these, your verbal is likely to improve. Good luck bud.
