Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Thought sharing my gmat-experience would be a good idea; I hope it will help you.
First things first:
710 overall / 94%
46 quant / 80%
41 verbal / 93%
I think GMAT is an obstacle everyone can overcome. It bases on few concepts - of which most are already put together in files available at gmatclub â€“ which you can learn to deal with. Even if you lack mathematical abilities, for instance if you arenâ€™t capable of handling a new question format with basic knowledge, you can succeed, because the gmac uses not just relatively few concepts but also is restricted in creating questions, because it has to consider the time, unambiguousness, uniqueness of the question and the lack of tools on the test takers side.
Verbal is the same case.
Nevertheless things like time restriction, stress etc. can make the gmat challenging. On my first attempt I got 560 for several reasons that include anxiousness, nervousness and wrong preparation. The mere fact that I completely lost my memory of that experience makes clear what the situation looked like. Let this be a motivation for you, if you already took the gmat and received a rather bad result. Think of your strategy again, analyse where you have problems and why etc. You can succeed in GMAT, believe in yourself, be strong-willed and never give up.
I learned from my first standardized test as a whole and improved myself; I would do it once again, because Iâ€™m not satisfied with my performance, especially in quant, on the other side are my incentives rather small because I need just 680 to start my undergraduate program. However Iâ€™ll need to make the GMAT again in some years.
The note boards arenâ€™t the factor that makes you fail the test. If you arenâ€™t able to change from using paper and pencil to laminated paper and pen in a short time, then, I guess, you arenâ€™t flexible enough to deal with the test anyway.
I donâ€™t know which questions I got wrong; at least I know that I never guessed. So I canâ€™t give you a detailed analysis of the concepts and implemented traps.
The questions do very much resemble those in gmatclub. This may be because the club attracts high quality questions, with no ambiguity etc.
Sets, inequalities, and number theory in DS and PS format alike, were the most common things tested. But generally all topics were tested. Just mixture questions I saw none. Of course one has to consider that I talk about 46 quant level.
The verbal part started with at least five Sc questions. Modifiers, tenses and meaning were tested in many of the SC questions. The smaller part were completely underlined sentences, the greater partial underlined, but overall they are pretty much similar to those in the SC1000.
For the 41 received I had three RC passages, which were rather simple, although quite long. The RC1000 along with the OG is sufficient for preparation I think. Be sure you get the meaning and structure of the passage; itâ€™s likely that youâ€™ll do fine. Donâ€™t rely, as I propose for other question types as well, on given strategies. Itâ€™s more important to find by yourself how you should approach a passage; some people need less time to find, either consciously or not, the best way to approach a passage others more.
CR questions were very similar to those of the OG and CR1000. Mainly they asked for flaws in the reasoning of the author, or how to weaken the argument; had three bold phrase questions, and two of the â€œHarry responses to Larryâ€™s argumentâ€
Very good score allabout
Can I borrow your verbal score?
All the very best for your future & we all are with you. I certainly look forward to meeting you (as a partner in a venture )
Thanks for sharing the experience, it's helpful!
Well, you are most welcome to India I have heard a lot about Dharmshaala, awesome place. New Delhi, Mumbai too are very good places to visit. Mumbai is the place where lot of movies are made. Not forget few more places like Goa (very close to Mumbai, famous for white sand beaches & greenary), Agra (Very close to New Delhi, if you want to see "Taj Mahal", one of the wonders in the world, a must see) & Of course Bangalore to meet me (Other than myself, there are huge number of software companies rather glassy buildings here).
PE 1: 730 50 quant 38 verbal
PE 2: 730 50 quant 38 verbal
With a fifty in quant I would probably have become a 750or60. Well, next time
of course we'll keep in touch. I'm quite confident to find an interesting business idea within the next four years. Maybe we fit together and become partners. We'll see, I certainly want to be self-dependent
btw. Do you know an objective and well written newspaper or magazine that informs about Indian economie that is available online?
I am so happy for u..Finally u nailed the 7XX score...Too good...
Goto Dharamsala man, its awesome..i went there last year in a bus and just cant stop thinking about that place. Mountains, rivers everything that you would want on a picture postcard is available there...But its more of a place for Honeymoon...You would find very few bachelors roaming around there;)
Hey vivek, parmendra, girish how are you guys doing...?
I am burried with work right now, but I'LL BE BACK!! _________________
