Need some motivation [#permalink] New post 05 Jul 2004, 21:25
Guys,

I need some motivation !!!!

I gave a kaplan today ( 4 days b4 my gmat ) and got a 590.......q46 v28..........many people had advised not to give the test in the lasst moments and thats what i've done........i feel completely demotivated now.

feels as if my whole prep has been wasted.......I had been pushing myself on verbal and this is what i get :(

I was trying to focus by giving some practice tests.

hi ash,

i already written GRE.

in the last day before my test .. i have written Powerprep. i got only 360 in verbal. in actual test i got 500. This is the same suggestion some one given me on that day.

keep it cool on the test day and just don't bother too much at one of the tests because you know your capacity.

try your best. You will definitely succeed.

All the best

Hey Man, I never got more than 650 on my Kaplan, most often 640 - I even took tests twice, still 640 :lol

You don't need discouragement right now - wait at least till you get 700+ on the real test and then you can get discouraged that you did not get more.

Right now, you can't do anything in 4 days - the best thing take a powerprep or two if you can. Even if you ran through them, i would still recommend as they are the closest animal to the GMAT - will get your logic working the same way and will get you into the mood. I would take some time off and enjoy these few days. Heck, you deserve it.

Somebody desrved eating a stake dinner and two beers the night before, but I am not sure how helpful that is. Steak probably is, beer, depends on the person. You need sleep the night before.

Don't sweat the Kaplan score. They're notorious for being harder than the real thing. Did you take Powerprep or Princeton Review tests? They're much closer to the real thing, esp. for verbal. Take one of those and I'm sure you'll see better results! Don't let Kaplan freak you out.

hy ash...

I guess U are just a bit tensed and that is naturally so... from what I have seen by ur verbal ''work-out'' here at the club U sure are good and steady... I guess U have to think about those times when U were better at scoring and also get back to ur usual self...

U just have to make UR self BELIEVE THAT U CAN DO IT... i KNOW U CAN AND u KNOW U CERATINLY CAN ... AND JUST FORGET ANYBODY AND EVERYBODY IN THE WHORLD...nand just go for it ...

U better 'see' the 700+ in ur head day and night and keep positive ... U will do very well...

I guess U are motivated by now and JUST in case U feel u need some more of this ''potion' let me know... I m always there to motivate ....


U take care and good wishes with U

:-D and yeah keep SMILING that helps!

Ashish,
Do not be discouraged by Kaplan scores...they are notorious for coming up with scores way below your actual scoring capability in the real exam.
As BB suggested ..go for some PP tests or for that matter even PR tests are good.

Chill ...if you have a error log ..go over it.
Go over the questions which you got wrong while doing OG.
Go over the math forumale's at the end of the Kaplan book.
Prepare your AWA templates.

Trust your instincts and you will be fine.

Vivek.

If you have not taken the test yet, you may give this a try.

Go to a closeby Bornes & Noble and spend couple of hours on reading inspirational books like "Awaken the Giant Within" by Anthony Robbins. I donot follow what these books say, but I read few pages whenever I need some inspiration. Words like "You can conquer the world" gives me a kick and I get charged-up.

In fact,this is what I am intending to do on the day before my test.

One can not afford to go to test in low spirits.

Good luck.
