Help me and Guide me to go from 530 to 750 [#permalink] New post 05 Nov 2011, 18:41
hi all,
i gave my gmat today and got a score of 530( quant:44 , verbal:19)
however, i used only Official guide 13 edition and Gmat preptest and i did not used any thing else to prepare.
when i used to give gmat prep test my score used to vary somewhere from 530 ,580, 620,630,660,680,720.
720 was the highest score i scored in the gmat prep test.
my score in gmat prep test used to be always (quant : minimum of 48 ,verbal :minimum of 19)

i started preparing for this from 3 oct 2011 and studied day and night .i prepared for this gmat paper for 28 days and i knew that i am not fully prepared for the exam ,but i still gave because of colleges deadline and that made me more pressurised
and now i am not devastated or shattered,instead i am planning for studying more hard and seriously and strive for a gmat score of 750 now in the next Gmat test i give..

i have full 24 hours in my hand to study till jan 2011.

my score in school were always :85% and above
and in my engineering degree i have a score of :91%

i am planning to join a coaching for gmat name"achieverspoint " in india , so please suggest me will it be good to join ?
how much long should i prepare ?
when should i plan for the next gmat ?

I am not sure on how Gmatprep gave you such a big range of scores. could be three possibilities for this dicrepancy.
(i)Gave repeated tests every day by analysing each question. Got too many known questions in the end exams. Scores inflated.
(ii)You improved yourself by working on your weak areas strtegically. You got 530 when you started your prep. As your prep went on your scores improved. But you did some blunders in official test, and thus you got a low score on D-Day
(iii) You scored consistently in 700 range in all other tests before your D-day. And you thought you did well in official test too. But you did not see the scores you expected. (This happened to many test takers who took recently in October and early November)
If it is (iii), take a break and wait for the right time.
If it turns out be be (ii), you need not worry much. See how you can not repeat those blunders again.
If it is (i), you need to start your gmatprep strategically.
I would say strategically as buying all the books available and studying hours together may not help much.
Identify your weak areas. Improve them. Hit only where it is necessary.

Is it achievers point pune? If so, A big NO.
My friend visited them to ask about course n fee. They called him every day with some wooing offers. He eventually joined. Now, He has an opinion that he lost time and money by joing Achieverspoint Pune.

You should judge yourself where are you in Gmat Preparation? Take a new test such as Mgmat diagnostic and see where you stand.

Depends on how much score you need and where do you stand now

Analyse your strengths and weaknesses. If you struggle with SC, then Mgmat SC or if CR troubles you then Powerscore CR bible etc.

I answered this question already

If you could take Mgmat fee test and post your all your results not only your quant verbal scores, many of us here will be able to guide you.
Goodluck

actually i was preparing for CAT india and iift and snap from august .
in the mean time a hought prevailed in me,that if i did not clear these exams...what will i do and this thought haunted me long.
as a result,
i prepared for gmat from 10th october 2011 through OG 13 and gmat prep test
and i gave many test and as a result i became aware of many answers. and since Indian CAT exam was also nearing so,i planned to give GMAT and score well after i scored 720 in gmat exam.

i did not have any other book apart from OG 13

so please suggest me all the books for study of GMAT
CR ---a weak area
RC ---a weak area
SC ---biggest weak area.

I am quite dazed :shock: everytime I hear OG13 from you. Are you sure its OG13? I thought OG is available upto 12th Edition in the market. I have to go hit shops to grab OG13 if its avaialble.

DS and Quant:
As you are already preparing for CAT, you might be well aware of Arun sharma CAT Quant books. If you already finished Arun sharma books, Gmat quant would be a cakewalk to you.
As you are used to CAT quant questions, OG quant will neither interest nor trouble you.
I assume you already have strong Math basics as you are a BITS pilani guy
If you want more practise, Go for Quant 700-800 pdf. It has about 900 problems in it. It covers wide range of questions. I solved it completely. I liked it.

CR---> Powerscore CR bible: It helps us to understand wide range of CR questions. Importantly, it discusses the frequent wrong answers in CR questions. Spoting wrongs answers make our life easy to pick the right one.
SC: Buy MGMAT SC 4th Edition in the market. For me, this book is SC bible. You will get 6 MGmat online tests free with the purchase of the book. Those tests are really good next to Gmatprep. Some may refer Aristotle SC too. This book may be good for the beginners to understand basic parts of speech etc.
RC: I am not sure of any good book being available for RC in the market.
Everyone has his/her own approach for RC. Princeton's RC approach looked fine to me.
It says: Read the passage in 2-3 mins by asking question SO WHAT?
Pay close attention to structure of the passage. See how each paragraph is connected to the other.
Always follow the author. What author thinks about the issue is important to us eventually.
Go back to the RC passage and refer lines in case of specific detail questions.
As you practise more and more passage, you will start to develop your own approach for dealing with RC.
It is important for you to see which principle works for you best

I have a few materials lying with me. I can mail you if you need. Let me know.
Good luck.

Read books by Stenbeck or Hemmingway. Then read Mark Twain because he plays with the language in a way that lends contrast to proper English usage. I know that these are all books that American kids read in High School, but that's why we read them, and that's what the GMAT is testing. Also, they are great authors.

I went to Achievers point, these people are very well organised you just need to inform beforehand of your requirements and they make sure you do not face any kind of problems, they also let students to rate every class which is a unique feature in itself, I could score 770 in GMAT thanks to them....
