For the fellow just above, I don't like Zidane and the way he acted during the final game

Toutes mes felicitations FIG!

You achieved something I'm still struggling for;you re a very lucky french guy now. I think the verbal part is especially challenging for us.

Can you share a little about the verbal and your scores before the final test?

Merci karlfurt

Since I had seen a huge lack in SC, I understood that I needed to spend a lot of time and energy to learn it. It was my only way to score enough in Verbal or, at least, to stabilize it.

To give u an idea, I did 3 consecutive times the SC 1000 document, using the software GMATTER:
> The first time was a very hard time. I had to compile all new fules to learn an apply. For every single question, good or wrong, I spend time to look for explanations on GMATClub. I created my own Idiom/Rules XLS files (more than 240 lines only for SCs)

> The second time was already better. I was able to explain why I choose one answer more than others. I needed to complete my XLS in former lines or in rareful new ones. I still spended time to check my correct and incorrect answers.

> The last time was christal clear. I understood fastly why I was wrong.

My verbal scores were all above 38 (44 - 41 - 39). But on G-Day, I have got only a 33

All is in an older post http://www.gmatclub.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=35436, to which u answered the first by a funny "Figaro"

In addition, I fairly believe that u can do it ! :D U can beat the GMAT verbal section, especially by the way that u practice I saw some very good post from u Don't give up and turn your mental to the one of a killer !!! :D

Thanks Necromonger

Actually, my next step is the TOEFL... I need to pass the 100 (on 120) Several people say that it's easier than GMAT... I'm not so much sure and I'm starting to study it

I don't need to write TOEFL because my undergrad in engineering was in English. I am applying to INSEAD, in fact - it's the ONLY one I'm applying to right now due to various reasons, and being overconfident is definitely NOT one of them! :) Are you applying to INSEAD too?

I'm wondering about it ..... Actually, a 680 seems to be not enough for it

What do u think? I cannot consider me an exceptional profil so... without a high GMAT, I do not think that the adcoms will agree for an interview ... Which could be the key for me :D

I don't think it's entirely true that they won't even consider you with a 680. Your score is definitely in the ballpark for a competitive application. At the least, you should try!

It's true that It should be a fantastic school

How many languages are u able to speak? If it's 3, u should be completly fine ... I read that people have to enter with the knowledge of 2 languages and leave with 3, at a so called "basic" level

It's one side of INSEAD that scares me a little ... Even if i could be able to learn spanish.

Dont worry fig, have a friend who has been accepted 2 years ago at INSEAD, and he got 680 as well. He had a medium engineering profile, but was working in London and had a family.

Regarding the TOEFL, insead asks for a minimum of 105. I've passed it last july with 108 and GMAT 590. It's of course much easier(even if I didn't believe to score above 100...), so with your 680, you shouln't have much problem.

Thanks for this reply karlfurt :D

I c The adcoms appreciate when an applicant has a work experience out of his or her country

I'm working at Luxembourg for 5 years... I hope it will be a plus as working at London

Hi Fig,
I downloaded SC1000,CR1000 and RC1000 from a link here in GMATclub.And also read that we can see the correct answer by clicking the "Show/Hide" button. And I see that the correct answer of the question appears in Blue color Font just after the option D of every question.I am not very comfortable using this approach to check my answers. Can you please explain what is "software GMATTER" and how do I get/use that ?
Thanks.

This is the former post of Gauss where u will find the GMATTER software : http://www.gmatclub.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?p=218952.

Sorry... I have not the 1000 CRs & 1000 RCs in .XML. It's surely possible to create a kind of "robot" that generates an XML file from a .doc . Perhaps one of GMATClub member could do it

Raghavender
Thanks for your post :D ... Yes... Hard time but necessary

Actually, I started to practice SC1000 on 17 july and I finished 2 days before my GDay on 26 september Thus, almost 2 months and a half

Since June, I practiced every weekday from 7-8pm to 1am and every weekend 6-7 hours a day .

I attached my XLS file.... perhpas it could help someone .

The column "C" is for correct and "W" is for wrong I simply increase by 1 every time that I practiced an idiom ... If the colour turn to pink on a "C" case, it means that i should focus on the idiom of the same line (the number of mistakes exceed that of correct answers).

Thanks SebZen

I already call HEC and the staff seems to think that the score is good and above average... So, it's motivating and I plan to visit the campus soon :D...
