Got 650 - happy with that [#permalink] New post 15 May 2006, 16:21
All,

It was a gruelling experience for a month and a half that got over on saturday 5/13. Took the test early morning at 8am in San Jose. I was amazed at the process involved in taking the test. The scores were:
Quant: 46
Verbal: 34
Final: 650

I decided in late march that I should take GMAT. Started off with the Kaplan book I bought last year but never got motivation to get into it. It was kind of hard to look back again to Math after so many years although I just love it.

Anyways, this is what I did:
- Kaplan 2006: Read almost all of the book. Solved the practice exercises and test. Took some tests present on the cd.
- OG Quant v.11: Bought it two weeks before the exam. Solved all the PS and DS questions.
- Princeton Review Math Workout: Visited Borders on a saturday and spent a whole day checking out the Math Workout book. Thank you Borders.
- gmatclub.com: Downloaded documents uploaded by different people. I wish someone could put them in one place. That apart, thanks so much to everybody on this site!! You are guys are doing a heckuva job :wink: Really, the dedication by the people who contribute here is amazing. I could access efforts of so many people in one place. Great job, team.
- other sites on internet: our good and an indispensable friend - googol (which was the actual name of google) helped me get information from other sites. For instance, this thread had some interesting links http://tinyurl.com/lcnvf. Hope people don't mind it.

Now, it is the time for getting to the schools. I will try local schools. Don't have much latitude to think about schools outside SF Bay Area. Thats married life. :)

Thanks again and good luck to test takers.
