My 720 experience [#permalink] New post 24 Mar 2007, 07:58
My stats:
Q: 49, 90%ile
V : 40, 90%ile

720, 96%ile

- Total Preparation Time: 1 month, 20 days

- Do not waste time on the first 1/3rd questions of any section (but for sentence correction) in OG. The final 1/3rd questions are only worth your time.

- Do not trust Kaplan scores: My scores: 600, 670, 590, 620; Kaplan Quants is too easy, verbal is good.

- Manhattan - Buy the Sentence correction book, you get the free online tests as well. I took only 2 of the 4 tests though, again, do it just to see a variety of questions; do not get bothered by the score.

- Princeton: What a waste !

- Gmatprep: Take both exams, reinstall; Should not repeat more than 4 questions in any section. Make sure you can solve every SENTENCE CORRECTION from GmatPrep, I got 2 questions FROM GMATPrep in my ACTUAL GMAT, good for me, I did not have to think before clicking the answer.


-GmatClub Challenges: Teach really nice shortcuts to solve problems. The level of questions is higher than GMAT, but practicing them helped me cut down my careless mistakes, and I learnt to perform under pressure. Besides, I could see how others faired on these questions, and that gave me confidence,

- I do not understand why, but the questions in actual GMAT Quants were way easier than anything I had seen before, much easeir than even GMATprep.

- If you are affluent in English, do not bother going through the whole list of essays and arguments, go through some of them and write a couple just to get in the groove.

Oh, and my GmatPrep scores:
(1) 710
(2) 670
Re-install, about 4 questions repeated in every section:
(1) 750
(2) 720

Congratulations
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Gooooood Job .. 720 is above the GMAT average of all MBA programs in the world .. So you are good to go


Thanks for the insight

ABout the Challenges, don't you think they're pretty expensive and since they do not represent the actual GMAT question they're not woth the $80 ?

Yes, GMAT Challenges could be cheaper. I had to think a lot before buying them.

Congratulations lucky man!

Could you please confirm again that It is possible to challenge different questions after reinstallation of GMATPrep. I don't want to spoil the second untouched test from GMATPrep :lol:
