Missed by 10 7xx - Got 690 (Q:45;V:39) [#permalink] New post 10 Oct 2006, 17:45
Dear All,

I scored 690 on my second attempt. My score on first attempt given on 26th August was 600(Q:44,V:28)/AWA 6.0. As you can see, my Q score improved by only 1 versus V which improved by almost 11 points. Although, I am disappointed with the score, I dont know if I will sit for the exam again. It would be better if I dont speak of which category of applicants I belong to. Yes, you guessed it right!! :) Unfortunately, this score doesnt seem good enough to compete among those applicants, but oh well, I am going to try my best!!!

Over the past month or so, since I became a member of this club, I used to frequent the club and tried to solve each question posted on Math and Verbal forums. On this forum, I learnt a great deal from everyone, especially on CR and RC. My RC was very weak but after learning about "speed reading", my reading speed increased as well as I was able to better comprehend the material. Sometimes, I didnt even have to go back to the RC passage to find out the answer to the question.

Between the first attempt and second attempt, I took GMATPrep (repeats) everyday for the three days before the exam. Followed necromonger's advice here and I think it definitely helped.

My GMATPrep scores were

680;700 (Before 1st attempt)
710;750 with repeats (Before 2nd attempt)
760 with repeats (Before 2nd attempt)

Thanks to all the club members as well as to the creators of this club!! Without your assistance, it wouldnt have been possible to achieve this score.

Rookie, let me be the first to congratulate you!!!!! :-D Its an awesome score. Yes everyone is different and requirements are different too. I just know that if I had that 690, I'll already be singing Christmas jingles....

But good luck with your application process and please share your verbal strategy with us. I am very weak in verbal :cry:

Don't worry buddy. I got 690 too.
I wish I had your verbal score, and you had my Q score.

For Q did you get a funky square-triangle ratio question?

Thanks everyone for your wishes!

uvs - Is there any particular section in V which is a weak area for you? As I mentioned, I improved my RC a great deal by following the "speed-reading" strategy. I went to one of the bookstores and picked up a book on speed reading. I read it almost completely within 2-3 hours since it had less pages. I have some material related to speed reading that I downloaded from this website. I can forward to you directly if needed.

For SC, I followed the ManhattanGMAT SC guide and boy was I strong in SC :)

For CR, I did almost 100-150 questions from 1000 CR doc as well as all CR questions from OG. The most important thing, along with finding the correct answer, is to understand why each of the other answer choices is wrong.

I have seen your posts and I am sure you will do great!! Best of luck to you!!
