When I first started studying a little over a month ago, I was using the Kaplan GMAT Strategies, Practice, and Review Book. I did some research to see what guides or classes I should use to take this process seriously. I found Manhattan GMAT and took their free CAT test. I scored a 530 (29, 35) and was seriously surprised at how terrible I did on the Quant section.

After this epiphany, I realized I needed serious help and ordered the Manhattan GMAT complete set. Since my quant was so terrible and it had been so long since I used any of this math, I decided to focus entirely on Quant to start. After I got through all of the Quant books I took another practice exam and scored a 620 (42,33). This was very encouraging even though my verbal dropped a little.

I went through the reading comprehension book, as it was my weakest verbal area and took another practice test today and scored a 640 (46, 32). Again, very encouraged despite my verbal falling.

I took the last two weeks off from work to study and I think it has paid off. My test is on Monday the 27th and I plan on going through the rest of my verbal books to try to bring my verbal score back to where it was originally. Unfortunately I have to work next week, but I have this weekend and next weekend to get through my verbal.

I really wish I had found this forum when I first started this entire process, because I would have saved so much time evaluating my study options. All of your stories are so encouraging and I hope that mine can serve as encouragement to someone in a similar situation.

If anyone has any advice for my next week of studying, please do share.

My test is tomorrow at noon and I just took another MGMAT practice test and got another 640 (Q 42, V37). I have only been working on verbal for the past week, and that shows in my score.

Weird thing though, as I was taking the test, it felt so easy, and I was expecting a higher score. Usually when I am done with the practice tests (especially the GMAT prep) I feel like I did terrible. For my purposes, a 640 will certainly suffice. The Zicklin School of Business at Baruch in NYC is my #1 choice and their avg gmat score for part time students is 580. For Full time the average score is 640.

For the rest of the day, I am going to chill, eat, watch football, study my notes and review the questions I answered incorrectly.

Thanks for all of the encouragement. It is nice to see so many strangers so enthusiastic over my performance. Take care and good luck to all.

I just got back from my exam. Bombed it. Got a 570 (Q33, V35).

Now my issue is, I don't know if I should retake this exam. The application Deadline for Baruch is 10/31. The average gmat score for part time students is 580. Could the essay sway my score 10 points up? I feel like crawling under a rock right now.

Are you planning on applying PT or FT? If you're going for PT then I think you're fine. Ensure the rest of your app is in order and apply.

The essay won't change your Q and V scores.

im planning part time. On the baruch website, they say:

"Our most recent data shows that admitted students have total test scores in the mid-80% range of 510 to 710. The averages vary by program and competition. In addition to the total GMAT score we pay close attention to scores received in each section of the test."

Im worried because i did so poorly on the quant section.

i think im going to take it again on 10/30. what do you guys think? even if i got in with my prior score, i wouldnt be satisfied. i worked so hard and my expectation was 600+. Baruch says as long as they have the application before the deadline and i take the test by the deadline they will look at all my scores. I read on this message board that usually your scores dont go up the second time around, but i think i could do it, even though i dont know what other work i could do. i thought i did everything capable to get the grade. i didnt feel nervous during ther test really. i was pumped.
