Is my quant improving? [#permalink] New post 07 Apr 2013, 03:22
Hi All,

I have been studying for the GMAT after getting a disastrous score of 630(Q39,V37) back in december.As expected,i have got rejects from colleges i had applied to.
I purchased gmatclub tests and i feel that even though they are hard,they teach u tricks that are useful.Till date,i was scoring Q41-Q42 in these tests whereas in Manhattan tests i was consistently scoring Q44-45.
I gave a gmatclub test today(after a gap of 10 days) and scored Q49(93 percentile).
My test is on 15th of this month.
Do u guys think i can get Q50/51(Even reaching Q49 would be quite an achievement for me :) )
I work full time in a very stressful job and hence dont study much on weekdays.
Let me know what u think should be my strategy leading up to the test so that i get a good score.
Also,since i have taken gmatprep repeatedly(around 3-4 times),i am now mainly concentrating on reviewing my mistakes from question and at max will give gmatprep once again next saturday/sunday.

Thanks,
Shreeraj

Hi Shree,

Improving from Q39 to Q49,that too on GMAT CLUB tests which are known to be hardest one, is in itself a great achievement.
You have mentioned that the last GMAT Prep test you are going to take on Sat/Sunday - probably a day or two before actual test. In my opinion, this strategy should be reviewed once. This is because, suppose if you found any area of improvement on Practice test when you will work upon it ? Arrange the GMATPREP practice test in such a way that you will get some time to work on the weakness - if any - found during the test.

Best Luck for your Exam!

Regards,

Narenn

Search for some 700+ level questions on the Quant forum (use the tag feature in the search). If you get most of them within 2-3 mins, you are set for Q50/51

Make sure you have revised Verbal as well. Verbal went down in my 2nd attempt from 34 to 29..
