Folks,

I took GMAT a few days ago, got a good score and am quite happy about it.

I have seen others' responses here - I don't really have anything unique to add. But, here is the purpose of writing this note though:

The probability/combinations/permutations questions on this site is a real piece of work. I went through them (the first 10 pages or so) 2 days before the test and it came in quite handy - I am very, very thankful to the people who shared it! I am sure I would have screwed up a couple of questions otherwise.

After looking at the verbal questions in the Official guide, I have no alternative but to feel I got lucky on the test day :). The questions I got were far easier than what the OG has (anyone remember the "sloths hanging by their rubbery fingers".. or the "interwoven filigree..." questions? - I didn't get any such ones!).

The other thing I wanted to point out - the GMAT prep books - I had read some Kaplan and PrincetonReview - are a real waste of time. For verbal, if one masters OG, that is it - one can take GMAT half asleep!

In both sections, I was squeezed for time in the middle - but finished both almost 8 to 10 minutes ahead of schedule. So, there must be some sort of disorientation between the ETS software spitting out the questions and how I perceive questions as hard or easy - I really didn't figure what exactly happened.

Last - I know there are way too many grammatical mistakes in this little message, but who cares? GMAT is over :)

Good luck.

Congrats! But I guess you forgot to tell us your score. What was your individual split?
What were your practice test scores?
You mentioned about first 10 pages of probability..do u mean general maths discussion forum or hard math question types?

I tried 3 Kaplan tests that are on the CDROM - got around 650 in each. The weird thing was - I could complete only 25 to 30 verbal questions in the alloted time. But I am really disappointed by the Kaplan authors - for all the money they make, they could put some more thought into it!

Then I took 1 powerprep test - I got some 770 or something, but that score is meaningless! The questions were all from the OG which I had looked at days earlier, so, I did not bother taking the other one.

I had just looked at the general math discussions section.

Another point - I contributed to ETS by buying its 3 paper tests for $25 as well. Two out of those indeed had questions not found in the OG - those can be used as a good evaluator to figure out how thoroughly one has understood the OG.

Thanks.

Thanks for sharing the information..but you still havent disclosed your GMAT score..:)
I hope ETS has not started penalizing people for disclosing their scores. Just joking.
