My First Diagnostic Results – Need Help [#permalink] New post 18 Oct 2010, 06:46
Hello everyone,

This past Sunday I took my first GMAT practice test using the GMATPrep software. My total score was 480 Q: 27 V: 28. The schools I am targeting want to see 700+. I plan to take the GMAT April 2011. How can I go about making such a large jump in my performance on the test? Have you heard of someone improving this much before?

I am a great undergraduate student with a 3.7 GPA. This score definitely does not reflect the value I can add in an MBA program. I am open to any suggestions.

With appreciation,

Welcome zay1917 !
By the way what does your nickname mean?

Yes, you can achieve 700+ even with this score. Your verbal score is not so bad , it is in 47%. I personally struggled a lot to achieve 31, I have started my jorney from 19 in verbal.
