I LOVE EVERYBODY AT GMATCLUB, THIS IS MY FAVOURITE WEBSITE [#permalink] New post 30 Apr 2005, 22:35
HELLO EVERY1!!

MY STORY OF GMAT IS KINDA DIFFERENT ONE,,
IM A CHEMICAL ENGINEER, WITH ENGLISH AS SECOND LANGUAGE!!!

MY PERSONALITY TRAITS DO'NT MATCH UP AT ALL WITH GMAT TAKERS!!! IM A VERY RECKLESS PERSON, VERY IMPATIENT, AND SUPERCARELESS!!

I FRIST TOOK GMAT IN 2004, WHEN I SCORE 530!!! I WAS'ENT SHOCKED BECAUSE MY MATHS WAS 49 AND ENGLISH 12!!!! THE WORST PART WAS THAT I HAD CONSUMED ALL THE MATERIAL INCLUDING ARCO,KAPLAN, POWERPRE AND PETERSON,,,AS THESE WERE THE ONLY OPTIONS AVAIABLE AT MY PLACE!! SO I WAS'NT ABLE TO UNDERSTAND HOW TO PREPARE AGAIN!!!! I WAITED FOR FEW MONTHS AND THEN IN JANUARY 2005, I AGAIN STARTED MY PREPARATION, THIS TIME WITH BETTER GAME PLAN,,,,,,,AFTER BRUSHING MY CONCEPTS I STARTED TAKING ACRO EXMAS,,,I WAS ABLE TO REACH AT A SCORE OF 660-700!

BUT IT WAS'NT SUFFICIENT, THAT TIME I DID'NT KNEW ABOUT GMATCLUB, THEN ONE DAY ONE OF MY FRIEND SHOWED IT """"GMAT CLUB.COM"""""""


BAAM,,,I HAD FOUND A SOURCE OF UNLIMITED SUPPLY OF QUESTIONS ,,,,BUT I JUST HAD 10 DAYS LEFT TO GIVE THE GMAT,,,,,AND I WAS ALSO A FULLTIME STUDENT AND PART TIME WORKER SO HAD REALLY LIMITED TIME!!!!

I STARTED TO SPEND AROUND 6 HOURS A DAY ON GMATCLUB TRYING TO COVER AS MUCH VERBAL QUESTIONS AS I COULD.........
HERE I DID A SMALL MISTAKE,I LEFT OUT MATHS,,,,,,I DID AROUND 30 PAGES OF VERBAL QUESTIONS IN 6 DAYS!!!! I WAS FEELING CONFIDENT!!!

4 DAYS BEFORE THE EXAM I TOOK MY FIRST KAPLAN EXAM,,,SCORE 590! BUT GOT AROUND 12 INCORRECT IN MATHS!!!! NEXT THREE DAYS I SPEND IMPROVING MY MATHS AND MAINTAINING MY MOMENTUM!!!!

I ALSO SUFFER FROM SLEEPLESSNESS!!!!

MY EXAM WAS AT 8:30 IN MORNING!!!! SO I GOT TO BED AT AROUND 10:00 A NIGHT BEFORE.
WAS UNDER A LOT OF STRESS AND EXCITMENT I WAS JUST ABLE TO SLEEP FOR AROUND 4-5 HOURS!!!!! BUT I WAS FEELING GOOD AND CONFORMTABLE IN THE MORNING!!!!

THEN CAME THE MOMENT!!! CLICK ON COMPUTER SCREEN AND MY EXAM STARTED!!!!
I WAS DOING GOOD, SPEED WAS OK,,,BUT I WAS FEELIG A BIT UPTIGHT AND WEAK!!!!
THERE WAS LOT OF TRAFIC IN AND OUT OF THE EXAMROOM, WHICH REALLY DISTRACTED ME AT TIMES, BUT I NEVER LOST MY CONCENTRATION!!!!!

I STILL REMEMBER ,BEFORE I CLICKED YES TO SEE THE FINAL SCORES,,,,,MY HEAD WAS ABOUT TO BURST WITH EXCITMET AND STRESS,,,,I TOOK A DEEP BREATH ,SAID MY PRAYER! THOUGH FOR A WHILE THE WONDERFUL AND EXCITING TIME I HAD WHILE PREPARING!!!!
THE WAYS PEOPLE AT GMATCLUB HAD SUPPORTED ME!!! THE WAY THEY APPRECIATED MY EXPALINATIONS, CORRECTED ME FOR MY WRONG CONCEPTS ETC ETC!!!!!

AND THEN CLECKED YES, AND I CLOSED MY EYES!!!! I WAS AFRAID TO SEE MY SCORES!!!!!! AFTER AROUND 20 SECS I OPENED MY 1 ONE EYE!!! SAY 670!!!!!!

I WAS HAPPY, BECUASE IT WAS MY TARGET!!!!!!


SINCE I HAVE MANY STRANGE PERSONALITY TRAITS,,,,CONTROLLING MYSELF HAS ALWAYS BEEN A VERY BIG PROBLEM FOR ME!!!! I UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT BUT I ALWAYS SCREW UP AT THE LAST MOMENT!!! I ALSO LACK GOOD LUCK,AND DO'NT HAVE WINNER'S INSTINCT!!!!!

I'LL BE APPLYING IN 10-25 RANKING SCHOOLS SINCE I DO'NT HAVE ANY WORK EXPERINCE AND FINANCES IS ALSO A BIG CONCERN FOR ME!!!!

I WISH ALL OF U ALL THE VERY BEST!!!
IM SURE WITHOUT GMAT CLUB I WOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO ACHIEVE MY TRAGET!!!!

THIS WONDERFUL EXPERINCE WILL ALWAYS BE A ONE THAT I WILL CHERISH ALL MY LIFE,,,,,,THIS WEBSITE WILL ALWAYS BE ONE OF MY FAVIOURITE!!!!

thanks a lot paul,jvp ad gmat2me2.....
my break up Q(48) v(33) 86%

i did around 8 test papers of acro: the score i them ranged from 660-700!

my kaplan was very strange......but my scores got screwed because of the meths sections ,,,i was getting around 12-17 incorrect!
kaplan1-590
k2-560
k3-540
k4-570

powerpre i got 660, but i told it like 7 days before the exam!!!!

my maths section started with a difficult question and i remember that ques-2,3,4 were all probability!!!! i guess the last mint kaplan preparation helped me ace the maths in a better way!!!!

in verbal i got some trick SC, my RC'S went fine, and CR was also ok, i got no BOLDFACE but got some of them like IF X=Y, THAN X=Z and so on!

i guess the distraction at the test cetre is also a big deal!!! u r under so much of pressure that a little disturbence if enough to set u out of track!!!!

i would seriously sujjest :!: :!: :!: :!: all of you to make sure that your test centre is a big one, and maintains a proper discipline,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

and also the number of scrash papers have been reduced from 6 to 4!

my target is nyu or ucla,,,, i know im absolutely out of their avergae but but i have some really stronge recommendations and my brother is a alumnia of ucla!!

hope i make it either by hock or by crock!!!
(((maintained parallesium!)) :)
