Just Finished the GMAT, 700 (42Q, 44V)! [#permalink] New post 16 Jan 2010, 10:48
In my preparation I was consistently scoring in the mid 600s, and then suddenly I do the real exam today and on my first attempt I get a 700 score!!!

My prep experience can only be characterized by math struggles. I think I did not review verbal for longer than 2-3 hours in total, yet I scored 97th percentile. Yet the math, I spent a good 2 months studying, only to score 62nd percentile (a good 10 percentiles lower than my prep scores too!)

I'm not really sure how that can average out to a 700 score. Doesn't it seem too high considering my math was so low? In either case I want to thank this forum (even though I was hardly vocal) as it was my primary resource for math preparation and overall motivation for my exam.

Just to let you know, the GMAT predictor here was 100% accurate for me (unbelievable actually). I scored 680 as my highest on GMAT prep, 650 on Manhattan and I was predicted to get 700 on the real exam. This indeed happened! Good job with that application, you must be doing something right!

On that note cheers and best of luck to everyone!

Congrats on the score! I look forwarding to posting a similar success story. What did your math prep consist of?

I have submitted my score to the score predictor tool so that you can use mine to further enhance that thing.

As far as math prep, I used the Official Quant Guide, Official GMAT Guide, Kaplan Math Workbook and Kaplan Math Foundations

I finished all math from those books and did every single question. However on the actual exam it clearly was in vein as I ended up bombing the math section.

My basic story is that I used the above 4 books almost exclusively. I also used the internet for some more difficult topics like probability that are not covered in such great detail in the above books. I did not study verbal at all (ironically) as I honestly felt that my LSAT prepared me for those sections far better than any GMAT verbal book can. I studied for the LSAT a couple of years ago but never ended up taking it...

As far as SC goes, I pretty much just went with my gut for those! So that's my story in a nutshell lol
