Help Needed!!!!! GMAT, third attempt with 510. [#permalink] New post 20 Nov 2012, 05:03
Hello All,

Though, I have been a member of GMAT Club for long, but this is my first post. Mainly out of sheer frustration, or of desperation.

I have scored 510 (Q: 34, V: 23) in my third attempt. This is my lowest out of all three attempts. The last time I attempted this test, I scored a 580. I think I was better prepared this time than the last. Even in MGMAT tests I was able to pull 650 (Q: 44 to 46, V: 33 to 35). I have no clue about where I went wrong.

I really need help in devising a strategy that will help me break the 680 barrier. I have a total work experience of 11.5 years. I have been advised to focus more on the tough questions etc. But not sure if this was the right way to go.

I'm looking for help from all of you. I'm planning to give this test again in May of 2013. But this time I want to be at least at 700 mark before I finally go for the finals.

Any suggestions on specific books, type of questions (easy, hard, very hard), suggestions on where to start now will greatly help.

Looking forward to all that you guys have to share.

Regards
Sunny

Sunny,

I am glad that although you have taken the exam thrice, you still want to take it. I will not say that I am sorry or whatever with your score because I too am in the same boat as you are in so, I know the restlessness and agony when you see this score. Well, you have not mentioned anything about the material that you have been referring to.

Remember that this exam is to find the incorrect answer choices rather than the correct ones. It may sound either strange or familiar but, during the examination, we end up finding the correct answer choices; this is the point when this exam starts to kick our a***s.

I would say that you have to identify your weaknesses and strengths and have to work on both. I believe that we are not morons who do not know the formulae and/or the concepts and that it is the application of concepts in the stipulated time that kills us.

I hope that you would get the light. Good luck!
