Hi,

Appreciate your response !

I am from an engineering background but I guess my math skills have gone a bit rusty.

I heard the Manhattan quant books are quite exhaustive, so I thought to stick with just the OG 13 and OG quant review.

What do you suggest?

Cheers,
Viv

Hi bb,

I know you get this a lot but how will my undergrad score of 79.2% ( Engineering from a good Indian university) translate to GPA/CGPA for MBA admissions into American and European
universities?

Viv

That should work and sounds like a good strategy. Just put the time and effort.

Yes.... there have been plenty of Indian applicants and most likely, you will be evaluated against other applicants in India.

Well I took a diagnostic test ( one from my private course that I am going to attend) and scored a whopping 500 :oops: !!

Well I guess for someone who has not practiced at all ,I am not too worried. I got 80% of the questions correct ( infact finished verbal 15 min ahead of time and I couldnt finish the quant section at all!, ending up with a higher
verbal score ) . So basically i fumbled on the timing and was getting tired staring at the screen for so long :shock: .

I will start practicing questions from now on and take the MGMAT or GMATprep , to get a more realistic score.

I am not giving up till I hit 740 at least !

Viv

Hi BB,

Well I took my first MGMAT CAT 1 today and scored a disappointing 600 (Q43 V31) :cry:

Quant:43

Questions were much harder than expected and I was unable to finish the section( missed by 1 sec ! ).So I guess that would have hurt my score badly.

Verbal: 31
SC went sort of fine I guess. ( 10 out of 15 right).
RC : The first 3 passages turned out to be hardcore science! By the time I reached the 4th passage my brain was fried and I realized I had around 12 min for the last 10 questions or so, so literally skipped the passage guessing 4 questions in a row( which went all wrong), and I presume hit my score.
CR: Got only half of them right.

Well overall I messed up in timing and I know I could do better ( since this was the first time I took the CAT) .

Hoping to hear any suggestions.

Regards,
Viv

Hi BB/All,

Took my MGMAT 2 today and score 630 (Q43 v33) .

I found the Quant section to be hard again.Does anyone know what Q43 will probably translate to on the real test?

Verbal : Did a lot better in CR, made silly mistakes in SC and quite bad on RC .Though this time around I could see improvements on my timing.

Will be taking the GMATPrep next saturday to see where I stand.

Viv

MGMAT quant tends to be harder than the real thing. The questions generally require more calculation and brute force than actual GMAT questions.

Hi All,

I seek urgent advice.I just took my second GMAT prep today and scored 640 (Q48 V30). My exam is scheduled on Tuesday 23rd of April.

My target score is 700 ( worst come 680 at least). I know I cant reach 680 in a few days time but I feel my concepts are clear but I just need more practice to push my score higher

So do I go ahead and write the exam or do I postpone it for a month or month half later?

Thanks.

Regards,
Viv

Hi All,

Took the GMAT today and got a 620 (q48 and v 27). 48 in quant was expected but I was expecting verbal to come between 30 and 33 atleast ( which it was in my practice tests).
Im going to take a break( have a holiday to Japan for a week from tmrw).

So now that I have decided to give it one more shot , I am aiming for 680-700 in the next attempt in a months time or more.

For Quant , I intend to to GMAT club tests and try to boost it from 48 ->49 or 50

For verbal, I guess im quite strong in SC but a bit weak in CR and RC. I just feel I need practice.I have no problem in timing during the exam.
I intend to do the GMAT paper tests and take the remaining MGMATs ( I have 4 left)

Can you suggest me more materials to practice with?

Regards,
Viv
