Hi all
Although I use the forum a lot, this is the first time I'm posting. And I'm doing it because I feel bad and my experience could help others. In most of the cases people who post their experiences are those with success, so here's a bad one.
I've been studying for 2 months now and was planning to take the gmat on november 4th. So, I started taking the Gmat test prep to see how I was going. First one, 510, second one (last week), 500. I feel horrible and stupid. I live in a small town so I can take a gmat course. I'm studying with the Of. guide and I just bought the SC from MGMAT although I didn't get it yet. After correcting my test, I realize that have of the question I have wrong, it's due to silly errors I make in calculation, and the rest I didn't know how to make them. I also thought I was strong in verbal, but I'm not. I usually have half correct and half incorrect, for both, verbal and quant.
Of course I decided to pospone this til next year. I study everyday. I'm with the GMAT prep question , doing them one by one, but I don't know if I'm keeping the knowledge.
Am I lost? I really want to apply for an MBA and this is a bloody barrier!!

Keep on practicing and make sure to analyze your mistakes. If you stop getting the same kind of questions wrong over and over again, you will gradually improve your score. For the time being, I would work through GMAT books and practice on single questions. When you feel that you've learned enough, that you are a lot more comfortable with question types that you used to have problems with or when you realize that you manage to answer questions correctly in a shorter time than before, do another prep test to see whether you really have improved. Also, do not forget about timing yourself. Good luck!

Hey,

Practise is the key. Focus on your weak areas and practise, practise and more practise. Buy some test series such as MGMAT Cat, they come handy. Study MGMAT books religiously and then more practise.

Best of luck !!
