My first GMAT try - 650 : A little disappointing [#permalink] New post 15 Dec 2005, 18:56
I took the GMAT today and got tripped in the Quants section. Here are my scores:
Quant: 39 - 57 percentile
Verbal: 41 - 91 percentile

I have been working on the quants for sometime now and seem to go into tail spin when I cant solve a problem within time. A part of me thinks that a greater amount of practice would help me through, but another part suspects that I may have reached my limit.

Your opinions and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also, if you have any suggestions on alternate ways of preparing for the quants, it would be great.

Thanks

wow!! [#permalink] New post 15 Dec 2005, 20:21
you got 650 on a first try.. that's great.
wish i have your verbal score and i give you my quant score..ha..
i received 49 on math but,,dismal low 20 on verbal.

How did you study for the verbal section? please let me know.

For math,
do all the OG questions. if you have time. do them twice and learn your mistakes....also, make sure to know fundamental math formulars and rules...i say do as many questions as possible....

Thanks for very much for your encouragement comeongmat. For verbal, I just went through the OG questions and also went through a document posted on this website that provides some basic rules for sentence correction, reading comp and sentence correction - I have attached the document with this posting. I hope this helps.

For my quants - I will do as you have suggested. Hopefully, I will be able to overcome the "third question trap".

Best of luck and thanks again

You verbal score is very good, many people find it difficult to score in verbal. You just need to practice more on quant section & you will see the magic.

All the best! :)

You'll get into 700 club soon as your verbal is so good. You only need to take more practices to get a high math score. Good luck!

Thanks for sharing the document!

another hints for math section [#permalink] New post 18 Dec 2005, 16:44
Live with OG for the next couple months...then you shall do ok on math.
The key to do well on math is to do many challenging questions.
I think integers, probablity and statistics problems are very very important.... these concepts appear frequetly on Q section .
if you do well on these questions, you will move into a difficult bin of questions and score above 48 or so..

i will say again...

integers, probablity , in equality and statistics are very important...
try to master concepts and rules......of course, watch out for ets traps...
that's how i score 49 on a real thing........
always look for shortcut and avoid ets traps...
