Hi guyz.. I just finished the test and I got 350
I'm feeling so bad .. The studying time was so short .. I only studied for 2 weeks.. and it was like studying math from scrach since I'm not good in math and the last time I did math was in high school 6 years ago. And since I didn't do well in math, I was feeling down and frastrated in verbal and didn't do well as well
I'm planning to retake it in one month time.. I'm aiming for 500 this time. Please help me on where to start? what books? I know I can do it. I just need your support and advice .. I'm really feeling sad and demotivated
dude, i'm pretty much in the same boat as you. i signed up 2 weeks ago, and have my actual test coming up in... guess wat 2 weeks. i have been putting some time in, and i do have an engineering degree, so maths isn't something alien to me. BUT it has been 5 years since graduation, and no i'm not in an engineering profession now.
so i'm feeling the tension too, just having doneOG DS sample questions last night, out of the last 25 questions (and this is after doing the first 125), i got 10 out of 25 wrong. now that's a really bad score.
i'm gunning for a 600 (hopefully !), and i realise i've got loads of practice to put in.
so its ok to feel like crap, but don't lose hope. all you need is practice and motivation and a little help if you need it.
and what the heck, I tell myself that if really did put in all I've got, and didn't get my target score after many tries. Then maybe a postgrad really isn't meant for me. I can still be successful doing other things. Like start a business, build a career ground up, etc.
More so, GMAT is but one of the entry requirements for a post grad programme. and a good post grad degree is but one of the variables of life long success. Its nothing more than a tool. It doesn't come with guarantees.
so take it easy on yourself, and try to enjoy the learning process. it only makes it easier!
