I got a 510 but need a 660 plus [#permalink] New post 20 Feb 2005, 07:38
All,

I got a 510 in my first attempt and I am taking it again on the 7th of March. The Princeton review seems to be good and has helped me improve my verbal but not good enough. For Quant I am still using the OG.

I have about 2 more weeks. Any advice?

For quant look at the problems in this forum.OG quant is not representative of the quant asked in exam.For verbal i would suggest go thru all problems in OG, try to analyze them and research why u got them wrong.Above all adopt a positive attitude.

Thanks Faizu.

Positive attitude is always there (though I have to admit that there are short intervals when it goes down) but the time is limted.

My plan is to practise, practise and practise in the last one week.

Methana,
I'm not quite sure what parts of quant you have problem with but I can tell you this forum really helps you out a lot. For inequality and absolute value type questions I recommend the last 100 Q's of DS in OG because they are quite hard. If you are having problems with Prob/Perm/Comb this site defintely helps a lot. Makre sure to always read the explanations that people leave for their answers. I was really not too confident with Quant initially but this forum definately helped me out.

Good Luck!!!

490 first attempt. I also need 670 minimum [#permalink] New post 22 Feb 2005, 01:20
Hi All,
it is a pitty 490 that I have achieved this morming.
So shameful that I am laughing about it.

I guess I have been working & studying pretty hard but surely not in the good way. Though I am running a department which aims at producing technical, statistical and actuarial studies for a world top 2 financial Institution, I have scored 39 in Q. Worst in verbal with 20....shame and shame

I would say that to achieve a good GMAT, the only thing is studying properly and not missing anything : I had a combination prob at the second question which killed my confidence. I aslo have geometry prob I was not sure about. In short I think that I screwed the first 5 or 6 questions and could not get back after that.
Regarding verbal I would say that it is much tougher than OG. Boldface questions, 4 RC (with one of 80 lines. 4 questions each), long CR, even longer SC...
For Verbal I reach the question 22 when 31 minutes were left : I was done.... I could not focus on the last 10 questions which screwed me up.

I would say also two things :
Quant : people tends to say that the forum is tougher. wrong. I found the forum easy to handle.
Verbal: Time is your limit

My previous scores were :
Kaplan : 650 (Q41,V39), 570 (dunt remember the split)
PP1 : 740 (Q51,v41)
PP2: (Q48,v39)

What do you think ? I am a bit lost here
