I've been lurker here for months now, read most of your success stories (always in need for that motivational boost) and strategies that some of you had shared. My GMAT journey has not been pleasant one. I already took it twice and my scores were 360 and 340 (last July and November)!! Needless to say, how much of improvement I needed to get to only what I need to get accepted into my "dream school" - 550!
I have just graduated from college with 3.6 GPA so I'm not the dumb one who is unable to understand or learn a concept. At the same time, English is my second language and math was never my strong skill. Hence, low scores!
However, I've been reading a lot of material that some of you posted here, following tips and they did improve my score on practice tests. My resources were OG 12
with Verbal Review and the entire set of Manhattan GMAT books
, some Kaplan
. I've also gotten access to GMATprepnow and Magoosh
(even though videos are almost identical), watched all videos and pretty much done all the practice there.
I've scored following within the past month (taking one exam every 3-4 days):Manhattan GMAT
CAT 1 - 550 ( q37, v29)Manhattan GMAT
CAT 2 - 560 (q35, v32)Manhattan GMAT
CAT 3 - 560 (q66, v31)Manhattan GMAT
CAT 4 - 530 (q35, v29)
GMAT Prep 1 - 510 (q38, v23)
Now, these are really fine (all of you that get over 600, and not to mention 700+ are just masterminds
) but I am really concerned if they will closely reflect my official score.
If someone would guide me how to get better in verbal (CR being my weakness) and improve math (work/rate and distance/rate plus probabilities are so hard for me), I would really, really appreciate.
My GMAT was supposed to be on the 6th of February but due to my concern I just rescheduled for the 18th. What can I do/read/follow to improve in these next three weeks? Please, I'm desperate!!!
