BOOKMARKED
Here it is, I am now faced with the real GMAT exactly 10 days from now. This is a thread that I will maintain to carry on and update for the next 10 days.

My score thus far has been disappointing to say the least, but my preparation was also off and On.

All in timed condition.

MGMAT1 - 560
Kaplan Premier CD - 620
MGMAT2 -580
GMAT Prep1 - 640

I think I have the ability to score above 720, but it can go anywhere from 580 to 740.

My Plan for next 10 days
==================

1. Give as many part tests for Maths and Verbal as possible to identify weak areas and immediately work on them.
2. I have zero preparation for AWA need to look into it in the last couple of days.


I will try to keep this thread updated with my progress, also looking for some last minute tips/motivation from GMAT veterans.

If you're only scoring 640 on GMAT prep and you're hoping for 700+ you'll just need to study longer. GMAT prep is a good predictor of what you'll score on the actual exam and most people score +- 20 points when taking the real thing. If you need to get 700+ for your target schools, you're likely better off really focusing on your weak areas and improving them before sitting for the gmat. You may want to save that GMAT prep 2 test bank until you're more comfortable with the material. If 650 is your target, I say go for it.

The good news is most schools will drop your lowest score and take your highest one. Just go in with the expectation that you may have to retake in a few months.

Good luck!

Thanks, I have a mamoth job of increasing my score by 100 in the last 10 days, it may be really difficult and I may totally fail. But I will give it a try.

Appeared for GMAT Prep2 - Got 710. Quite a moral booster. Need 20 more. So my list stands as follows.

MGMAT1 - 560
Kaplan Premier CD - 620
MGMAT2 -580
GMAT Prep1 - 640
GMAT Prep2 - 710
