Meagre Score - 630 (Q 46 V 31)- Disappointed [#permalink]

Hi everyone -

Took the GMAT today...

after 3 months of prep, i managed to score 630 !!...
AWA was quite simple...prepared well for all the topics and landed up with familiar ones..it was a breeze...

Quant:

Q started off well with the first 5 questions of moderate difficulty..then the GMAT guns fired me with hard and crazy DSs. after finishing the test, it seemed all questions were crazy and above difficulty level..had lot of Arithmetic mean median stuff and prob questions..but overall i thought i had managed well.

Verbal:

Verbal was as crazy as ever. The ones in the OG seemed to be no way comparable. SC questions were typically long and convoluted. RC was a bit ok..CR was tricky..I went by my instints and i could manage to narrow down to 2 choices. But here lay the catch. the 2 choices were very close and i think it paid off towards my bad score. got one boldface towards the end. Overall my time management was bad and i was very circumspect about the first 10 q's.

Then when I pressed the magic button the scores showed it all...

I did not study the OG well esp the Quant sections. I had manage to complete the SC and the CR sections of OG. Would OG have had any influence on my score in any way??

My Prep scores are as follows
Kaplan 1 - 550
Kaplan 2 - 590

PP1 - 650
PP2 - 720

Princeton 1 - 640
Princeton 2 - 740
Princeton 3 - 670

Am an engineering graduate with 3+ years of work experience in a top 5 IT consulting firm. i have a couple of international research papers during my undergrad.

Guys, though my score is average- would I be eligible to get an admit in any one of the Top 10 schools thru a cracking essay and a couple of recos??..should i take the test again?? Please help me out from this quagmire..Need a lot of advice!! Paul, Pret and others - RESCUE!!!

Karthik

With 630 and a good essay I would say yes.

Honestly, I would suggest that you take it again. You have a month or two at the very least. You can ask Linda Abraham about it.

I think studying the Official Guide is very important. Its the only source of Authentic GMAT type questions. Even though you may not see similar questions on your test, studying the OG gives you an idea of the way GMAT Math is set up and the way these questions are answered.

Hey Karthik, I would definitely suggest you to take the test again. What is your nationality? If you are indian, then there are a lot of indians in IT and 630, I'm afraid, would not make the cut in a top 10 school.

What was your score breakdown? If verbal was your weaker area, I would suggest you to go over the OG and try to do the problems under time constraint. It makes a lot of difference when doing them untimed and timed. Go through the 885SC collection and the CR collection in the verbal forum.

Thanks Paul. Indeed am from India. As advised by many, am planning to take the test again sometime after Jan 05. I need to get hold of the OG first and ofcourse Kaplan800. These are supposed to be good I guess.
Though i have a good idea about the GMAT, I would start from scratch again.

Thanks again folks.

We r kinda in the same boat..I scored 650.

But if you are thinking of applying for falls 2005..Jan 2005 wud be too late to take your GMAT.

Lemme know how you are planning to tame the GMAT beast(You can PM me).
