Thanks krzak for the suggestions. My test is 2 weeks away and i know if i crack SC, i will break 700 (pretty confident in quant and CR/RC) .
After following your posts over the last week, i understood that you were also at the same level (5-6 wrong answers in SC) and you built up a good momentum in the end. I think you gave the test when you were at your peak and that did the trick. I could infer from your post that momentum is the difference good performance and a great performance. I intend to build a good momentuim in my last 2 weeks and hope i crack it !

Thanks.

You guys are too nice! Let me try to answer the questions =)

bherronp: Hahaha! Very true. I'm also applying to the exact same schools as some of my friends, all of whom have 750+ GMAT and good credentials. Maybe I should start sabotaging their food, j/k! LOL!

trahul: Thank you for the kind words! I really thank you for your supportive messages the week before the test =) As for SC, it's strange because I got a V44 on GMATPrep1 *before* I started studying SC, partially because I had no clue how to do any SC beyond medium level, and focused on the RC/CR and got only 1 wrong in each and 6 wrong in SC. As I did more and more SC questions, I was getting better, but still missing 5-6 questions on the CATs, albeit from the medium to hard bins. Meanwhile, my RC/CR suffered because I had less time per question to do them and made some stupid mistakes (that's when I got the V33, 36, 38). I think after more SC practice, I was able to get more SC correct without sacrificing CR/RC, and was able to climb back to V41 again.

I studied Manhattan SC 1 chapter at a time, and did not move on until I did all the sample questions. Of course, not all GMAT questions only contain verb tense errors, so in the beginning, before you learn the later chapters, you might miss all the hard problems in the first few chapters, but that's fine. Just do them all, Ch 1-9, record all the problems you missed, and re-do those later on. Make sure you LEARN the material and didn't just read through the chapter. Understand why you chose an answer over another. It's easier when you're doing the chapters because you know all the questions in that chapter are of similar type.

I don't know if this answered your question, but let me know if you need more info. =)


Yes,i need a little help :? ...i am 90% on Kaplan in SC..but when i did it on princeton i came a cropper :shock: :shock: .. i am not putting up with PR anymore...but concentrating on OG10th edition, Manhattan SC and Kaplan...... However those scores in SC in PR are weighing heavily on my mind.... I am really feeling down right now.....all the hard work in 3 months is just getting frittered away...

can you suggest something.....I am usually good with verbal but having a tough time lately...21/2 weeks to D Day :shock: :shock:

alimad: SC is tough for me too, and I can only imagine what it's like for a non-native speaker. I would say do ALL of the OG11, OG Verbal REview, Manhattan SC, SC1000, and get the "Elements of Style" and search some other threads in this forum. There are some good books that a beginner in grammar can read to build up their grammar skills. Make sure you do ALL the problems and UNDERSTAND why you got something right or wrong. I know this will be very time consuming, but if you really want to make it better, you gotta spend the time with it. That's how Verbal works.

trahul: I think momentum is key, and attitude. I was dejected at the end of my GMATPrep2, with a 710 score. But over the next few days I built momentum again with getting 80-90% hit rate with OG11 and Verbal Review questions, as well as just telling myself "I know I can get 700+, and that's GOOD ENOUGH for me" to take the pressure off. I went in with a very positive attitude, LOTS of sleep, and a very relaxed mind. Taking the test to me was like playing a trivia game, with me wanting to see the next question and see if I can solve it. Try to build momentum and put your mind in a positive state and you should do great! I'm SURE of it!

adc: Yum... laksa ;)

FP: I completely and utterly HATED the PR Verbal. I did the CAT once and thought the answers were gibberish and illogical. Thus if you're doing well in Kaplan SC, do the Manhattan SC book. If you did that, did you do all the OG11 and Verbal Review hard 2/3 (yes, two-thirds) of the book? Do you understand why you made the mistakes you did?

DON'T feel bad about your score on PR. I know how you feel, and that is EXACTLY how I felt after taking the PR CAT. I felt so bad I took the MGMAT CAT right after (horrible mistake) and felt even worse. Good thing that was about 2 weeks before D Day, so you're in exactly the same situation. I highly recommend you do OG SC and at most some Manhattan SC online (they give you 25 free questions online). Do the MGMAT CAT a few times, without timer if you want, just to do as many SC problems as you can. Don't take it as a test within 5 days of your test though. Just do problems and understand them. PR means nothing, and you are much better than your PR hit rate! Believe in that! (I got a V33 on PR CAT, and V41 on GMAT, proof that PR Verbal sucks!)

I hope that helps your mood, FP! Good luck!

FP, if you have Manhattan SC, then you can log into Manhattan GMAT and get 6 free CATs and 25 free SC questions. Look on the front page or somewhere around there for instructions. =)

Congrats !! Very Inspiring debrief...

I am planning to take GMAT in a month. I don't have Manhatten Verbal. Is there an electronic version of the book available online for sale?

Hope to see you in admissions forums soon.....

Cheers.

I don't think there's an electronic version... you can probably get Amazon to ship it to you very quickly.

the number properties was a Veritas handout that my friend lent me. I returned it to him unfortunately. I heard the Manhattan Number Properties is also good...

Just got my AWA score, 6.0! I'm really surprised since I thought I completely bombed the Analysis of an Issue essay... strange! I guess they grade very leniently?

Argh! Bite your tongue! I got a 4.5 on the AWA. Either they do correct strictly or I am a hopelessly bad writer. I'd like to believe the former :-)

kripalkavi, are you a native English speaker? That could be why the scores were different? Most of the people I knew who took it who are native speakers got a 6.0.

trahul, when is your test again? are you ready?

kryzak,

mine is on 8/20. Im ready but you know i get this feeling that i have not practiced enough. My practice scores are ranging from 680-720 off late and i believe if i dont screw my quant ( if i get above 48) i should get round about 700.
I thought of rescheduling to mid sept, but later decided to go on with test now. Let me see how will i do. Wish me luck.
By the way, your's and lanter's performance has really increased my confidence level.
