I got a 680 the first time I took it with a low score in quant. The only preparation at that time was the 2 ETS tests...
This time I only concentrated on quant and got a 710 (49 Q 36 V). I did all quant OG questions. 4 Kaplan tests(570, 530, 590,590) and 3 Princeton tests (640,660,690). I reviewed all quant errors and that's about it.
The probability and combination questions I had were pretty easy, so dont stress about it too much.
The verbal section had a killer 90 line RC. Thats what took all my time...

Congratulations!! Great score!!

For quant, what part of OG was more close to the actual questions you got? Some people say for instance for PS, last 100 questions the ones that are likely be appear on the test. Was that your experience as well?

710 [#permalink] New post 18 Aug 2004, 15:03
Yeah the RC totally messed up my timing, I could barely spend any time on the last 10 questions...That probably resulted in the dismal Verbal score. Dont know if I should maybe give the GMAT another shot...

The last time I had a 78 percentile on quant and something like 85 percentile on verbal. This time it was 90 percentile on quant and 82 percentile on verbal.

Actually I had questions which were comparable to all parts of the OG. Very similar in structure etc...
